    Default Dead Horse - US Government Style

    This is floating around the interwebs these days and I likes it:


    When Riding A Dead Horse, What Do You Do



    1.Buy a stronger whip.

    2.Assert “This is the way we always have ridden this horse.”

    3.Arrange to visit other sites to benchmark how they ride dead horses.

    4.Provide additional training to increase riding ability.

    5.Outsource to private contractors to see if they can ride the dead horse cheaper.

    6.Harness several dead horses together to increase the speed.

    7.Declare that, as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is less costly, carries lower overheads, and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some other horses.

    8.Commission a study to identify ways to improve dead horses through incremental enhancements, such as adding wheels.

    9.Rewrite the expected performance requirements for all horses.

    10.Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position.

    Something similar to that floated around a DOE job I worked many years ago before the internet. It was something like this but with cartoons to demonstrate:

    "You have a cart pulled by two horses stuck in a ditch. The obvious solution is to add more horses to pull the cart out. The DOE solution is to put six more guys on the cart beating the same two horses."

    The cartoon was way funnier but you get the picture.
