The Fable of the Bunny and the Snake

My boss sent me this one, thought you might enjoy it too.

The Bunny & the Snake

Once upon a time, in a nice little forest, there lived an
orphaned bunny and an orphaned snake. By coincidence both were blind
from birth. One Day, the bunny was hopping through the forest and
tripped over the snake and fell down.

"Oh, my," said the bunny, "I'm terribly sorry. I didn't mean to
hurt you. I've been blind since birth and can't see where I'm going. In
fact, since I'm also an orphan, I don't even know what I am."

"That's ok," replied the snake. "Actually, I too, have been
blind since birth, and also never knew my mother. Tell you what, maybe I
could slither all over you, and figure out what you are so you'll know.

That would be wonderful" replied the bunny.

So the snake slithered all over the bunny, and said, "Well,
you're covered with soft fur, you have really long ears, your nose
twitches, and you have a soft cottony tail. I'd say that you must be a
bunny rabbit."

"Oh, thank you, thank you," cried the bunny, in obvious
excitement. The bunny suggested to the snake, "Maybe I could feel you
all over with my paw, and help you the same way that you've helped me."

So the bunny felt the snake all over, and remarked, "Well,
you're smooth and slippery, and you have a forked tongue, no backbone
and no balls. I'd say you must be a team leader, a supervisor or
possibly someone in senior management.
