I am sorry I do not know the  original source; it came from my
brother-in-law via my sister.

Four men were bragging about how smart their cats are. The first man was
an Engineer, the second an Accountant, the third was a Chemist, the fourth
was a Government Worker.

To show off, the Engineer called to his cat, "T-square, do your stuff!"
T-square pranced over to a desk, took out some paper and a pen and promptly
drew a circle, a square, and a triangle. Everyone agreed that was pretty

But the Accountant said his cat could do better. He called his cat and

said, "Spreadsheet, do your stuff!" Spreadsheet went out into the kitchen
and returned with a dozen cookies. He divided them into 4 equal piles of 3
cookies each. Everyone agreed that was good.

But the Chemist said his cat could do better. He called his cat and

said, "Measure, do your stuff!" Measure got up, walked over to the fridge,
took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from the cupboard and poured
exactly 8 ounces without spilling a drop. Everyone agreed that was good.

Then the three men turned to the Government Worker and said, "What can

your cat do?" The Government Worker called to his cat and said, Coffee
Break, do your stuff!" Coffee Break jumped to his feet, ate the cookies,
drank the milk, crapped on the paper, screwed the other three cats, claimed
he injured his back while doing so, filed a grievance report for unsafe
working conditions, put in for Workers Compensation and went home for the
rest of the day on sick leave.
