A complete and total screw-up. From President George W. Bush's infamous comment to FEMA chief Michael D. Brown while the latter was botching the federal response to Hurricane Katrina: "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."
Ben Affleck, you're doing a heck of a job on "Gigli".
Varus, you're doing a heck of a job with those Legions.
The captain of the Titanic was off duty when the ocean-liner struck the iceberg. That would mean that whoever decided to push the ship into it's fastest speed even though it was at an ultimately disastrous angle did a heck of a job. Cpt. Edward John Smith went down with his ship.
