MBA Humor:

Case Study #1: Corporate Governance

A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit saw the crow and asked him: “Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?” The crow answered: “Sure, why not.” So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Q: What can we learn from this?

A: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up.
