One day, all the body parts were arguing about who was the most important.
The brain said, “I’m the most important. Without me, none of you would even know how to do your jobs.”
The heart said, “I’m the most important. Without me, none of you would even survive long enough to do your jobs.”
The stomach said, “I’m the most important. Without me, none of you would have the strength to do your jobs.”
Then the anus spoke up and said, “I’m the most important. Were it not for me, this body would be a complete mess.”
The other parts scoffed. Who did this foul, unclean, unimportant body part think it was, to compare itself to the likes of the brain, heart or digestive system?
Furious at being scorned, the anus went on strike. A couple of days passed, and soon the whole body became an unpleasant place. The brain ached, the heart pumped poisoned blood, the stomach was distended… Until finally, they all gave in, stating that the anus was the most important part, and nobody dared to say otherwise.
Moral: To be in charge, you don’t need brains. You don’t need heart. You don’t need guts. You just have to be an asshole.
