2. A person, government or otherwise organization or bureaucracy who exhibits spaced out tendencies, vague references to the intangible and supernatural, and otherwise acts in a mysterious and inexorable manner when pressed on their perpetual polychrestic or remunerative value.

Melthos, why can't you just admit the educational recovery supply and service department is wasting our state's tax dollars. All you do is regulate emergency supplies of pencils and books in case of natural disasters. There are seventeen other agencies who do the exact same thing. Can't you just stop having a Trelawney moment and admit that your agency is redundant so we can use the funds for something meaningful, like better teachers?
