Dave Wilton's small list included this:

"BOGSAT", jocular acronym, "bunch of guys sitting around a table", as in
"that research project sounded very good, but it was only a BOGSAT"

Is this likely to be also meant as a pun on military jargon terms like
"intelsat", where the final "-sat" means "satellite"?

  "What's the basis for these estimates?"
  "BOGSAT, sir."
