The Wild Ass and the Lion

A WILD ASS and a Lion implemented a scalable, extensible arrangement so that they might expedite the consumption of beasts by utilizing their win-win synergy. The Lion was a hard-hitting go-getter and agreed to push the envelope with his can-do attitude. The Wild Ass implemented various procedures designed to cut costs, induce greater efficiency and target various market-driven, value-focused channels of meat.

They took as many beasts as physics would allow and touched base to determine a forward-looking utilization of their assets and equity. For this purpose the dead were divided into 150 million shares.

"I will take the first share," the Lion said, "because I am CEO: and the second share, as a partner with you in the endeavor: and the remaining shares (believe me) will include your carcass, unless you willingly resign, and set off as fast as you can."

Might makes right.

The Wild Ass and the Lion (original fable)

A WILD ASS and a Lion entered into an alliance so that they might capture the beasts of the forest with greater ease. The Lion agreed to assist the Wild Ass with his strength, while the Wild Ass gave the Lion the benefit of his greater speed. When they had taken as many beasts as their necessities required, the Lion undertook to distribute the prey, and for this purpose divided it into three shares. "I will take the first share," he said, "because I am King: and the second share, as a partner with you in the chase: and the third share (believe me) will be a source of great evil to you, unless you willingly resign it to me, and set off as fast as you can."

Might makes right.
