During the welcoming ceremony the boss says: "You're all part of our

team now. You can earn good money here, and you can go to the company

Four weeks later the boss returns and says: "You're all working very

Of the cannibals says: "You FOOL! For four weeks we've been eating team

leaders, managers, and project managers and no-one has noticed


and now YOU ate one developer and it got noticed. So hereafter please

don't eat a person who is working."
