I get the feeling that the Universe potters around jotting down whether things are going the way they are supposed to and so on, and then stops and sees me having a good time, and says to itself. ‘That half-wit there seems to be enjoying herself. Catch her, and put her up for a Leadership course or something. Do something with her! Something!” So, in my unguarded moments, I have been bunged into courses on Leadership. Barely do I totter out of one, when another beams at me touting the title, ‘Effective Leadership’, and the moment I finish that up, ‘Most Effective & Beneficial Leadership’ (Beneficial to whom?)
I have no problem with these blokes whose job it is to tell you to polish your pencils and sharpen your brain and what-not, but I find the whole thing irksome and tedious. So much better to take my Leadership course. My course is fun. Titled, Butter Battle Course, it is being substantially boosted up with these gems.
Skip several tomes on Leadership, and read up: Hope this helps the squids, squirrels and sheep too.
President Squid – a witty book that enthralls and amuses.
Giant Squid has a very important realization. No giant squid has ever been a president before. He looks for qualities to be a President and surprise of surprise – he already has them all.
Qualities of a President:
- He wears Ties
- He has a large house (The Titanic!)
- He is famous
- He does ALL the talking
- Big & bossy
President Squid is as loud and rambunctious as ever. He is convinced that he the Best President Ever!
One day as a President, he unwittingly does some work, and then being a President doesn’t seem like fun anymore.
The book also provides a solution for those unfortunate Presidents who became Presidents and then realized it is not all as gassy as a cup of beans.
Complement this with the equally endearing and hilarious books on leadership:
King Hugo’s Huge Ego : By Chris Van Dusen
Loius I, King of the Sheep – By Oliver Tallec
Who was it who said that there is nothing that cannot be learnt from good children’s books? I heartily agree.
Children are actually the best (and worst) audience for literature because they have no patience with pretence. – Orson Scott Card
