To shave a monkey

Concept: any effort put into producing an unconvincing fake is wasted effort.

It takes a lot of effort to shave a monkey because they don’t like it and they are very nimble. The result, even with a perfect shave, is clearly not a man, so the effort is wasted. Analogous to “polish a turd”.

Let’s not waste any more time on that project – we’re just shaving a monkey.
