1.
POLLYWAGGIN: The experience of spending an inordinate amount of time swimming your ass off - upstream only to get caught by an 8 year old and flushed down the toilet by his mother.

Wasting your time and effort with no positive outcome,
useless or profitless activity
That poor guy has been Pollywaggin for 20 years, you think he'd be ahead of the game by now!
