Savor the Adventure and the Taste of New Cheese! Be Ready to Quickly Change Again and Again They Keep Moving the Cheese These are some real-life cheese rules. Never give your old cheese away in anticipation of finding new cheese. Never turn down cheese offered to you, even if you already have too much. Never turn down cheese offered to you just because you've never seen that kind before and have no idea what to do with it. When someone brings unfamiliar cheese to you, your response should be "I've done this many times." Don't let anyone else know you've found some cheese. Don't share your cheese. Cheese can go away at any time without notice, hence #5. Cheese can go bad at any time. When this happens, disregard #5 and go ahead and share your cheese. An added benefit of this is that it will appear as if you're finding cheese for others (Hey? isn't this what the managers are supposed to be doing?) and you'll be a hero. Do not ask for tools (e.g. software, or a computer that is at least as fast as the secretary's) that will help you bring in new cheese. Do not expect your head cheese (i.e. manager, but we wanted to use the word cheese as much as possible) to find you cheese. You are expected to find the cheese. (Just where did you think they get their overhead?) If you let your head cheese find you some cheese, it will be out in the desert*, or maybe even out of state (remember - out of state, out of mind. Umm, actually I just made that up). Be careful. Just because it looks like cheese and/or smells like cheese, it may not actually be cheese.1 (This reminds us of the Cheech2 and Chong3 dog story4. If you don't know who Cheech and Chong are then go to an antique store and try to find one of their records.5 Or you could look at their website. - editor)And finally, Never cut the cheese (oh come on, you were thinking this yourself). iCheese Let's discuss more from our perspectives in SPN.
