Four men were bragging about how smart their dogs were. The first man was
an engineer, the second man was an accountant, the third man was a
chemist, and the fourth man was a government worker.
To show off, the engineer called to his dog, “T-Square, do your stuff!”
T-Square trotted over to a desk, took out some paper and a pen, and
promptly drew a circle, a square, and a rectangle. Everyone agreed that
was pretty smart.
But the accountant said his dog could do better. He called his dog and
said, “Slide Rule, do your stuff.” Slide Rule went out to the kitchen and
returned with a dozen cookies. He proceeded to divide them into 4 equal
piles of 3 cookies each. Everyone agreed that was very smart, also.
However, the chemist said his dog could do even better. He called his dog
and said, “Measure, do your stuff.” Measure got up, walked over to the
fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 oz. glass from the cupboard,
and poured exactly 8 oz. without spilling a drop. Everyone agreed that was
also very smart.
These three men then turned to the government worker and asked, “What can
your dog do?”
The government worker called to his dog and said, “Coffee Break, do your
stuff.” Coffee Break jumped to his feet, ate the cookies, drank the milk,
crapped on the paper, intimate relationshipually assaulted the other three dogs, claimed he
injured his back while doing so, filed a grievance report for unsafe
working conditions, put in for Workman’s Comp, and went home on sick leave.
