Corporate Lessons

Lesson number one

A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit saw the
crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?"

The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground
below the crow, and rested.

All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story is:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

Lesson number two

A turkey was chatting with a bull.

"I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the
turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."

"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull.
"They're packed with nutrients."

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him
enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree.

The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

Finally after a fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the top of
the tree.

Soon he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the

Moral of the story:
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Lesson number three

When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be Boss.

The brain said, " I should be Boss because I control the whole body's
responses and functions."

The feet said, " We should be Boss as we carry the brain about and get
him to where he wants to go."

The hands said, " We should be the Boss because we do all the work and
earn all the money."

And so it went on and on with the heart, the lungs and the eyes until
finally the asshole spoke up. All the parts laughed at the idea of the
asshole being the Boss. So the asshole went on strike, blocked itself up and
refused to work.

Within a short time the eyes became crossed, the hands clenched, the
feet twitched, the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered.

Eventually they all decided that the asshole should be the Boss, so the
motion was passed. All the other parts did all the work while the Boss just
sat and passed out the shit!

Moral of the story:
You don't need brains to be a Boss - any asshole will do.
