A Silly Idea
A silly idea can escalate into a crisis very quickly

Somebody had an idea of putting legs on cheese, to see it run around. They knew a mouse might chase that cheese when it ran, but that would be OK and perhaps even a pleasant thing to see. They didn’t think of the cat chasing the mouse, though, causing havoc and knocking things over in its pursuit. Nor did anyone stop and think of the rabid Alsatian that would chase the cat, raising hell as it did so, barking and biting and rampaging. It turns out putting legs on cheese was a silly little idea that escalated into a crisis very quickly once they actually did it.

Remind you of anything?
