Pronounced "bwat a muh", this is the moo box. The same box which produces the mooing sound of the cow when turned upside down. How did I come across this new term which forms the basis of French Lessons? Right after a eternally long Monday meeting. You can imagine our state when a meeting, intended to be a quickie, stretched to consume our entire morning. That is when a friend brings up the term Boite à meuh.
According to my friend, we need a Boite à meuh. So, there is one guy who is controlling the meeting. Whenever we digress, this guy can turn the moo box upside down. This will force us back to where we left the main subject. This is an interesting way to stay focused in a meeting. There are a couple of French companies who has already implemented this.
