One day the different parts of the body were having an argument to see which should be in charge.
The brain said: 'I do all the thinking, so I'm the most important and I should be the boss'.
The eyes said: 'I see everything and let the rest of you know where we are, so I'm the most important and I should be in charge'.
The hands said: 'Without me we wouldn't be able to pick anything up or move anything. So I'm the most important and I should be in charge'.
The stomach said: 'I turn the food we eat into energy for the rest of you. Without me, we'd starve. So I'm the most important and I should be the boss'.
The legs said: 'Without me we wouldn't be able to move anywhere. So I'm the most important and I should be in charge'.
Then the rectum spoke and insisted that it should be in charge.
All the rest of the parts laughed and derided the very notion. The rectum wasn't important. How could it possibly be in charge ?
So, the rectum closed up. After a few days, the legs were all wobbly, the stomach was queasy, the hands were shaky, the eyes were watery and the brain couldn't think straight. The other body parts soon agreed that they couldn't take any more and that the rectum should be placed in charge.
Which all goes to show that you don't have to be the most important person to be in charge.....just an 'a...hole'.
