As our readers will know, Jon and I believe a sense of humor is a very important, all around, multi-purpose tool to have in a proposal tool kit. It serves a variety of functions, from team building to conflict resolution. Used correctly, it can make the difference between a project being a painful experience to be endured, with the team thinking, “Never again!” and one which is great fun and which leads to the team thinking, “Let’s do that again!”
With that in mind, I came across what I think is a great, very clean little joke (the kind it’s okay to share with co-workers*) and I thought I’d share it with you. In turn, I’d ask you to write and share your favorite joke. Here goes…
A guy hears a knock on the door, opens it and sees a snail on the mat. He picks up the snail and flings it into the yard. Two weeks later the guy answers the door and the snail is again on the mat. The snail looks up at the guy and says, “Now just what was THAT all about?”
*For those who may be concerned: We at Strategic Proposals have the utmost respect for snails and other living creatures. Please be assured no snails or other living creatures were harmed in any way in the development of telling of this joke.
