Meaning: too many people involved will mess things up.
Use examples.
Rewrite 1: too many artists spoil the
Rewrite 2: too many generals spoil the
Rewrite 3: one more
handyman and the walls will fall
Rewrite 4: one
politician too many spoils the campaign

Comment: The must be many more examples of too much of something spoiling another thing. What would too many teachers spoil? Too many
bullies2a? Too many doctors? What would be an absurd example? Have fun with it!
