Once upon a time, allegedly, in a nice little
forest, there lived an
orphaned bunny and an orphaned snake. By surprising
coincidence both were
blind from birth.

One day, the bunny was hopping through the forest,
and the snake was
slithering through the forest, when the bunny
tripped over the snake and
fell down. This, of course, knocked the snake about
quite a bit. "Oh, my,"
said the bunny, "I'm terribly sorry. I didn't mean
to hurt you. I've been
blind since birth, so, I can't see where I'm going.

In fact, since I'm
also an orphan, I don't even know what I am." "It's
quite okay," replied the
snake. "Actually, my story is much the same as
yours. I, too, have been
blind since birth, and also never knew my mother.
Tell you what, maybe I
could kinda slither over you, and figure out what
you are, so at least
you'll have that going for you." "Oh, that would be
wonderful" replied the

So the snake slithered all over the bunny, and said,
"Well, you're covered
with soft fur; you have really long ears; your nose
twitches; and you have
a soft cottony tail. I'd say that you must be a
bunny." "Oh, thank you!
Thank you," cried the bunny in obvious excitement.
The bunny suggested to
the snake, "Maybe I could feel you with my paw, and
help you the same way
you've helped me."

So the bunny felt the snake all over, and remarked,
"Well, you're scaly
and smooth, and you have a forked tongue, no
backbone and no balls. I'd say
you must be either a contractor, consultant or
possibly someone in senior management."
