The Dead Horse
« on: February 13, 2013, 01:04:29 PM »
The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians , passed on from one generation to the next , says that when you discover you are riding a dead horse , the best strategy is to dismount.
However in modern business and government , because of the heavy investment factors to be taken into consideration , often other strategies have to be tried with dead horses , including the following :

1.  Buying a stronger whip .
2. Changing riders .
3. Threatening the horse with termination .
4. Appointing a commitee to study the horse .
5. Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses .
6. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included .
7. Appointing an intervention team to reanimate the dead horse .
8. Creating a training session to increase the riders share .
9. Reclassifying the dead horse as " living impaired " .
10. Change the form so it says 'This horse is not dead " .
11. Hire outside contractors to ride the dead horse .
12.  Harness several dead horses together for increased speed .
13.  Donate the dead horse to a recognized charity , thereby deducting its full and original cost .
14.  Providing additional funding to increase the horse's performing .
15.  Do a time management study to see if lighter riders would improve productivity .
16. Purchase an after-market product to make dead horse run faster .
17. Declare that the dead horse has lower overhead and thereby performs better .
18.  Form a quality focus group to find profitable uses for dead horses .
19.  Rewrite the expected performance requirements for horses.
20. Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position .
Of all the things I've ever been called ;
I do like "Dad" the most .   ---Burl---

Pretty good!  As they say, all good humor is rooted in the truth.

As a matter of fact, it's so true, it's almost not funny! LOL!  :-D
