Four men were bragging about how smart their dogs are. The first man was an engineer, the second an accountant, the third a chemist and the fourth was a civil servant.
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 triangle.
Everyone agreed that was pretty smart. However, the accountant said his dog could do better. He called to his dog, “Slide Rule, do your stuff.”
Slide Rule went into the kitchen and returned with a dozen cookies. He divided them into four equal piles of three cookies each. Everyone agreed that was good.
The chemist said his dog could top both of the other dogs. He called out, “Measure, do your stuff.”
Measure got up, walked to the fridge, took out the carton of milk, got a 20ml glass from the cupboard and poured exactly 18ml without spilling a drop.
Everyone agreed that was good. Then the three men turned to the civil servant and asked what his dog could do.
The civil servant called to his dog, “Coffee Break, do your stuff.”
Coffee Break jumped to his feet, ate the cookies, drank the milk, shat on the paper and peed on the paws of the other three dogs. He then claimed he’d injured his back while doing so, filed a grievance report for unsafe working conditions, put in for compensation and went home on sick leave.
Everyone agreed that was amazing!
