I like *3* the best!!!!!!!!!!!    

 Lesson One:

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small
rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, "Can I also sit on my butt like
you and do nothing?" The eagle answered: "Sure, why not." So, the
rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle, and rested. All of a
sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Management Lesson: To be sitting on your butt and doing nothing,
you must be sitting very high up.
Lesson Two:

A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to
get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't
got the energy." "Well, why don't you nibble on some of my manure
droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients." The
turkey pecked at a lump of manure, found it actually gave him
enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next
day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
Finally after a fourth night, he was proudly perched at the top of
the tree. Soon he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the
turkey out of the tree.

Management Lesson: B.S might get you to the top, but it
won't keep you there.
Lesson Three:

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the
bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was
lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the
frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize
how warm it was. The dung was actually thawing him out. He lay
there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A
passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of
cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Management Lesson:
(1) Not everyone who craps on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of crap is your friend.
(3) And when you're in deep crap, it's best to keep your mouth

This ends your two-minute management course
