Humour Files: Corporate

Three corporate lessons

In your quest for reaching the top - keep these things in mind...

 Three 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 spotted by a farmer, who shot the
 turkey out of the tree. Moral of the story:

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

 Lesson Number Three
 A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold, the bird
 froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was lying
 there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the frozen bird lay
 there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realise how warm it was. The
 dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and
 soon began to sing for joy.
 A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.Following
 the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and
 promptly dug him out and ate him! The morals of this story are:
 1) Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy.
 2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
 3) And when you're in deep shit, keep your mouth shut.
