Welcome To Wednesday!

One hot  summer day, Rangi took his dog to town,and tied it under a shady tree  while he went to the pub for a cold one. 
Twenty  minutes later a cop entered the bar and asked, “Who owns the dog  tied under that tree outside?”
Rangi  called out, ” It’s mine,mate.” 
“Your dog  seems  to be in heat” said the cop.
Rangi replied,”No way mate ..she’s cool  as ’cause she’s tied up under that  shady tree.” 
The cop  said, “No! You  don’t understand. Your dog needs to be  bred.”
“No  way,” said Rangi. “That dog don’t need bread. She ain’t hungry cause  I fed her this mornin’.” 
The  exasperated cop said, “NO!  You don’t understand; your dog  wants to have sex!”
                                  (You gotta  love this)
Rangi looked  at the cop and said “Well, go for it mate….I always wanted a police  dog.”

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to generation says that, “When you discover you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.”  However, in government and the public service sector, more advanced strategies are often employed, such as:

1. Buying a stronger whip

2. Changing riders

3. Appointing a committee to study the horse

4. Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride dead horses – politicians love this one

5. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included

6. Reclassifying the dead horse as living-impaired

7. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse

8. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed

9. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase dead horse’s performance

10. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse’s performance

11. Declaring that, since the dead horse does not have to be fed, it’s less costly, carries lower overhead and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some other horses

12. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses

And of course….a very favorite tactic in government:

13. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position
