JOKE OF THE WEEK, 31 May 2010

Dietrich Fischer – TRANSCEND Media Service

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts:  “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”  The man below says: “Yes, you’re in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field.”  “You must work in Information Technology” says the balloonist.  “I do” replies the man. “How did you know.”  “Well” says the balloonist, “everything you have told me is technically correct, but it’s no use to anyone.”  The man below says “You must work in management.”  “I do” replies the balloonist, “but how did you know?”  “Well”, says the man, “you don’t know where you are, or where you’re going, but you expect me to be able to help. You’re in the same position you were before we met, but now it’s my fault.”

  2. great joke! Oh so relevant to the state of political affairs in the Philippines. IT-run elections with same old politicians running (managing) the show.
