  • Project Manager!

    A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on display. While he was there, another customer walked in and said to the shopkeeper, "I`ll have a C monkey please."
    The shopkeeper nodded, went over to a cage at the side of the shop and took out a monkey. He fit a collar and leash, handed it to the customer, saying, "That`ll be $5000."
    The customer paid and walked out with his monkey. Startled, the tourist went over to the shopkeeper and said, "That was a very expensive monkey. The cost of them are only a few hundred dollars. Why did it cost so much?"
    The shopkeeper answered, "Ah, that monkey can program in C; very fast, tight code, no bugs, well worth the money."
    The tourist looked at the monkey in another cage.
    "That one`s even more expensive! $10,000! What does it do?"
    "Oh, that one s a C++ monkey; it can manage object-oriented programming, Visual C++, even some Java. All the really useful stuff," said the shopkeeper.
    The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a third monkey in a cage of its own. The price tag around its neck read $50,000.
    He gasped to the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the other put together! What on earth does it do?"
    The shopkeeper replied, "Well, I haven`t actually seen it do anything, but it says it`s a Project Manager."
