Assunto:  To play whack-a-mole
 
Mensagem:  A guy in the web gave this apt description of the whack-a-mole game:
"You're familiar with the Whack-A-Mole game, right? This is where you get the hammer out and as a mole pops up, you whack it down, only to find another one popping up from another hole. The idea is to stay ahead of the moles with your trusty hammer."

I think PPaulo caught the semantic meaning through the "guy in the web" :
É como andar em circulos...repetitivo; gasta energia, recursos e não chega a lugar nenhum.
