foot bullet
 n.— «A friend of mine was handed an assignment that I often refer to as a “foot bullet.”  It’s the kind of thing that no one pays any attention to until they go to review the budget versus spend for the quarter and find that they’re off. And the person who gets nailed in the blamestorm that ensues is generally the person with the least guilt.» —“Taking on a project no one wants to call a project” by Tricia Liebert TechRepublic: Desktop Support Apr. 15, 2008.
