When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be the boss.
The brain said, “Since I control everything and do all the thinking, I should be the boss.”
The feet said, “Since I carry man where he wants to go and get him in position to do what the brain wants, then I should be the boss.”
The hands said, “Since I must do all the work and earn all the money to keep the rest of you going, I should be the boss.”
And so it went with the eyes, the heart, the lungs, the legs and all the other parts of the body, each giving the reason why they should be the boss.
Finally, the asshole spoke up and said it was going to be the boss.
All the other parts laughed and laughed at the idea of the asshole being the boss.  The asshole got so angry that he blocked himself off and refused to function.
Soon the brain was feverish and could barely think, the feet felt like lead weights and the legs were almost too weak to carry the body anywhere, the eyes grew bleary, and the hands hung useless at the sides.  All pleaded with the brain to let the asshole be declared the boss.
And so it happened;  all the other parts did all the work and the asshole just bossed and passed out a lot of shit.
Moral Of The Story:  You don’t need to be a brain to be a Boss —- just be an asshole.
[One of my first jobs was as an ice cream scooper at a neighborhood store.  As a side-line, we also sold humorous posters like the “hang in there” cat and the “story” above.  I bought one and posted it my bedroom as a reminder for the future.  The moral of the story still makes me smile…     —    kmab]
