The Four Clever Cats
Four men were bragging about how smart their cats were. ……….
The first man was an Engineer, the second man an Accountant, the third man a Chemist and the fourth was a Government Employee.
To show off, the Engineer called his cat; “T-square, do your stuff.”
T-square pranced over to the desk, took out some paper and pen and promptly drew a circle, a square, and a triangle.
Everyone agreed that was pretty smart.
But the Accountant said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, “Spreadsheet, do your stuff.”
Spreadsheet went out to the kitchen and returned with a dozen cakes. He divided them into four equal piles of three cakes.
Everyone agreed that was good.
But the Chemist said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, “Measure, do your stuff.”
Measure got up, walked to the fridge, took out a gallon of milk, got a pint glass from the cupboard and poured exactly half a pint into the glass without spilling a drop.
Everyone agreed that was pretty good.
Then the three men turned to the Government Employee and said, “What can your cat do?” The Government Employee called his cat and said, “CoffeeBreak, do your stuff.”
CoffeeBreak jumped to his feet,
ate the cakes
drank the milk
went to the loo on the paper
sc****d the other three cats
claimed he injured his back while doing so
filed a grievance report for unsafe working conditions
put in for compensation ....... and went home for the rest of the day on sick leave.
AND THAT’S WHY I WANT TO WORK FOR THE GOVERNMENT......
