“Mutual Admiration Associations” and “Self Congratulatory Societies” – Similar to entry 1, “Artificial Construct of Relevance”, I crafted them as descriptors of any organization seemingly put in place primarily for the purpose of giving out prizes to it’s membership. ‘Enough about me, what do you think of me?’ Also similar to entry 1, the ‘tell’ is whether or not anyone outside of that defined bubble can find any discernible merit within that same construct. Again also like entry 1 they are typically used as a cute excuse to dress up and applaud each other but little more. Tea anyone?
