Some light relief in our serious world

Today we will have a little light relief.

Confucious he say ....

'Too much serious management and leadership stuff drive man mad'

Old Confucius was not into political correctness so please forgive the male gender emphasis.

Today we will have a little light relief.

Please enjoy this little piece that many of you will have seen before.

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 realize 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.

Moral of the story:

1) Not everyone who shits 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, it's best to keep your mouth shut!

Happy Wednesday - it is ok to laugh when we are at work

Very instructive. It´s the case of being a small bird in a world of big animals. Wisdom is your only help, your shelter.
