Of Legs and Meetings

Q: How many legs does a dog have if you call its tail a leg?

A: Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.

Q: Between email meetings, telephone meetings, web-conferencing meetings, and in-person meetings, how many kinds of meetings are there if we define an email meeting as not being a meeting?

A: Four. Pretending that words don't mean things doesn't make them stop meaning things.
