    The organs of the body were having a meeting, trying to decide who was In charge. Each organ took a turn to speak up.

    The brain said: I should be in charge because I run all body functions.

    The heart said: I should be in charge because I pump blood that circulates oxygen for the brain and the rest of the body.

    The stomach said: I should be in charge because I process food to the brain.

    The legs said: we should be in charge because we take the brain where it wants to go.

    The eyes said: we should be in charge because we let the brain see where it's going.

    The asshole said: I should be in charge!  Without me the rest of you can do nothing!

    All the other parts of the body scoffed openly and laughed so hard.  You?  In charge?  You're nothing but an asshole!

    This made the asshole very angry.

    He was so upset that he slammed tightly closed and refused to co-operate with any other parts of the body.

    After just a few days, the brain got a terrible headache and cried out for relief.  The stomach got bloated and began to ache terribly.  The legs got cramps and became unstable.  The eyes became watery and vision became blurred.   The blood became toxic and accumulated waste started to poison the body.

    Eventually the other organs agreed to let the asshole be in charge.

    MORAL OF THE STORY: NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, OR HOW IMPORTANT YOU THINK YOU ARE, EVENTUALLY YOU WILL DISCOVER THAT IT IS ALWAYS THE ASSHOLE THAT IS IN CHARGE.
