Funny Jokes - What an MBA can do !

A boat docked in a tiny Mexican village. An American tourist complimented the Mexican

fisherman on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took him to catch them. 'Not

very long,' answered the Mexican. 'But then, why didn't you stay out longer and catch

more?' asked the American. The Mexican explained that his small catch was sufficient to

meet his needs and those of his family.

The American asked, 'But what do you do with the rest of your time?'

'I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, and take a siesta with my wife. In the

evenings, I go into the village to see my friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and

sing a few songs...I have a full life.'

The American interrupted, 'I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you! You should start

by fishing longer every day. You can then sell the extra fish you catch. With the extra

revenue, you can buy a bigger boat. With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you

can buy a second one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers.

'Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years,' replied the American.

'And after that?' Afterwards?

That's when it gets really interesting,' answered the American, laughing. 'When your

business gets really big, you can start selling stocks and make millions!'

'Millions? Really? And after that?'

'After that you'll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near the coast, sleep late,

play with your children, catch a few fish, take a siesta, and spend your evenings drinking

and enjoying your friends!'
