Animal Bureaucrats

An engineer, an accountant, a chemist and a bureaucrat were bragging about how smart their dogs are.

The engineer called to his dog, “T-square, do your stuff”. The dog took out paper and pen, and drew a circle, a squareand a triangle. Everyone agreed he was smart.

The accountant called, “Sliderule, do your stuff”. The pooch went to the kitchen, got a dozen cookies and made four stacks of three. Everyone was impressed.

The chemist called, “Beaker, do your stuff.” The dog went to the fridge for a quart of milk, got a ten ounce glass and poured exactly eight ounces without spilling a drop. Everyone agreed that was great.

The bureaucrat called, “Coffee Break,do your stuff!”. Coffe Break ate the cookies, drank the milk, chewed the paper, claimed he injured his mouth doing so, filed a grievance for unsafe working conditions, put in for workers’ compensation and took extended sick leave.
