I think the more appropriate analogy is "shit filter."

The article specifically mentions the difference between shit "funnels" (or filters) and shit umbrellas. Shit is shit, there's no good amount, other than zero, that it's good for engineers to have rain down on them. If there's anything of importance in the shit a good manager's job is to fish it out, wash it off, and pass that on to their engineers.
