That was great, thanks.

A coworker of mine added another to the list.


CONSULTANT COWS

You hire a systems consultant to produce 2 cows.

After spending three times the amount of time
and money originally promised, the consultant
delivers the cows.

One of them is dead.

The consultant assures you that this is a normal
occurrence under the circumstances and besides, you
really only needed the one cow anyway.

The consultant collects his fee and leaves.

After he is gone, you discover the remaining cow
is actually a bull. The most embarrassing thing is
that the discovery is only made during a milking
demonstration being given in front of all the
would-be dairy product recipients.

You are forced to give up on the project and consider
udder alternatives.
