There are humorous ways of telling things with a serious backdrop, the morale has to be dug and the evident part is absent. I found some of them to be really good..
When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be Boss. The
Brain said, “I should be Boss because I control the whole body’s responses
and functions.” The feet said, “We should be Boss as we carry the brain
about and get him to where he wants to go.” The hands said, “We should
be the Boss because we do all the work and earn all the money.” And so
it went on and on with the heart, the lungs and the eyes — until
finally the asshole spoke up. All the parts laughed at the idea of the
asshole being the Boss. So the asshole went on strike, blocked itself up and
refused to work. Within a short time the eyes became crossed, the hands clenched, the feet twitched,the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered. Eventually they all decided that the asshole should be the Boss, so the motion was passed. All the other parts did all the work while the Boss just sat and passed out the shit!
Lesson? Well, you don’t need brains to be a Boss – any asshole can do!!
Another one goes like this.
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit saw
the crow, and asked him, “Can I also sit like you and do nothing all
day long?” The crow answered: “Sure, why not.” So, the rabbit sat on the
ground below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared,
jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Gist(for those feebleminded individuals): To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting
very, very high up.
