    windshield wiper fluid or worn blades And you would have to check all of the above each time you filled up And if the automaker found a defect requiring a recall he would call you on your cell phone and you would have to pull over on the spot submitted by Charles W Baetsen Q Why did the chicken cross the road KINDERGARTEN TEACHER To get to the other side PLATO For the greater good ARISTOTLE It is the nature of chickens to cross roads KARL MARX It was a historical inevitability TIMOTHY LEARY Because that s the only trip the establishment would let it take SADDAM HUSSEIN This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it RONALD REAGAN I forget CAPTAIN JAMES T KIRK To boldly go where no chicken has gone before HIPPOCRATES Because of an excess of phlegm in its pancreas ANDERSEN CONSULTING Deregulation of the chicken s side of the road was threatening its dominant market position The chicken was faced with significant challenges to create and develop the competencies required for the newly competitive market Andersen Consulting in a partnering relationship with the client helped the chicken by rethinking its physical distribution strategy and implementation processes Using the Poultry Integration Model PIM Andersen helped the chicken use its skills methodologies knowledge capital and experiences to align the chicken s people processes and technology in support of its overall strategy within a Program Management framework Andersen Consulting convened a diverse cross spectrum of road analysts and best chickens along with Andersen consultants with deep skills in the transportation industry to engage in a two day itinerary of meetings in order to leverage their personal knowledge capital both tacit and explicit and to enable them to synergize with each other in order to achieve the implicit goals of delivering and successfully architecting and implementing an enterprise wide value framework across the continuum of poultry cross median processes The meeting was held in a park like setting enabling and creating an impactful environment which was strategically based industry focused and built upon a consistent clear and unified market message and aligned with the chicken s mission vision and core values This was conducive towards the creation of a total business integration solution Andersen Consulting helped the chicken change to become more successful LOUIS FARRAKHAN The road you see represents the black man The chicken crossed the black man in order to trample him and keep him down MARTIN LUTHER KING JR I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question MOSES And God came down from the Heavens and He said unto the chicken Thou shalt cross the road And the chicken crossed the road and there was much rejoicing FOX MULDER You saw it cross the road with your own eyes How many more chickens have to cross the road before you believe it RICHARD M NIXON The chicken did not cross the road I repeat the chicken did NOT cross the road MACHIAVELLI The point is that the chicken crossed the road Who cares why The end of crossing the road justifies whatever motive there was JERRY SEINFELD Why does anyone cross a road I mean why doesn t anyone ever think to ask What the heck was this chicken doing walking around all over the place anyway FREUD The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity BILL GATES I have just released the new Chicken Office 2000 which will not only cross roads but will lay eggs file your important documents and balance your checkbook OLIVER STONE The question is not Why did the chicken cross the road Rather it is Who was crossing the road at the same time whom we overlooked in our haste to observe the chicken crossing DARWIN Chickens over great periods of time have been naturally selected in such a way that they are now genetically disposed to crossroads EINSTEIN Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road moved beneath the chicken depends upon your frame of reference BUDDHA Asking this question denies your own chicken nature RALPH WALDO EMERSON The chicken did not cross the road It transcended it ERNEST HEMINGWAY To die In the rain COLONEL SANDERS I missed one CLINTON I did not and I repeat I did not have sexual relations with the chicken submitted by Walter Keyes Dilbert s Theorem on Salary Dilbert s Theorem on Salary states that engineers and scientists can never earn as much salary as business executives and sales people This theorem can now be supported by a mathematical equation that is based on the following two postulates Postulate 1 Knowledge is Power Postulate 2 Time is Money As every engineer knows Work Time Power Since Knowledge Power and Time Money we have Work Money Knowledge Solving for Money we get Work Knowledge Money Thus as Knowledge approaches zero Money approaches infinity regardless of the amount of Work done CONCLUSION The Less you Know the More you Make submitted by Mike Becke A true story about physics and barometers Sir Ernest Rutherford President of the Royal Academy and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics related the following story Some time ago I received a call from a colleague He was about to give a student a zero for his answer to a physics question while the student claimed a perfect score The instructor and the student agreed to an impartial arbiter and I was selected read the examination question Show how it is possible to determine the height of a tall building with the aid of a barometer The student had answered Take the barometer to the top of the building attach a long rope to it lower it to the street and then bring it up measuring the length of the rope The length
