A candidate for my humor blog, nonetheless ...
Came in an internal list. Must read :)
BTW, No offense meant.
One day, three consultants, each one from WIPRO, INFOSYS and TCS, went out for a walk. They were old buddies from Engg college, and they were together for a college reunion..
For no apparent reason, they went into this zoo and passed a monkey. Being in the same business and from the same college, there was a little bit of a peer competition going on between themselves - they couldn't resist testing themselves against each other - especially the Infosys guy said to the others: "Why don't we prove who is the best among ourselves?". Why not, said the other two !
The Infoscion said "Let's have a test. Whoever makes this monkey laugh, works for the best firm".
By mutual agreement, the Infoscion took the first turn. Being a pure logical strategist, the Infoscion tried to make the monkey laugh by telling jokes. The monkey stayed still. As a more practical consultant, the Wipro guy tried to make funny gestures... no good, the monkey stayed put... Now, comes the TCSer... being the practical guy he was always trained to be, he whispered something into the monkey's ear, and it burst out laughing at him.
The other two were astonished. How did this TCS guy manage to beat them? No way they were going to accept defeat so easily. So the Wipro guy said "OK, let's take another test. Let's make this monkey cry !!"
So there they went again, applying the same methods as before. The Infosys guy narrated sad stories, the Wipro guy made sad gestures,and they failed again... Then, the TCSer again whispered something into the monkey's ear and lo! It started crying, patting the TCSer's shoulder! The other two just could not believe their eyes!
So the Infoscion said "OK, you've won twice. If you can win just this one, we will bow to you. Let's make this monkey run".
And he barked at the monkey and ordered him to run. Of course, it stayed where it was. The Wipro guy, true to his type, pushed and prodded the monkey - still No go. So...here comes our TCS guy, again, and whispers into the monkey's ear. The monkey just takes off! It runs and runs as fast as it can, as if it was scared to death!
The other two surrendered. Said they: "OK, we give up.You're the best among us, and you work for the Best firm of the three. But please, please tell us your secret," they begged him. "Well", said the TCSer, "The first time I made it laugh, I told it I work for TCS. The next time, I told the monkey how much I get paid...so it started crying. And finally I told him that I was here for recruitment.
