Once there were four managers. Their names were: Somebody, Everybody, Anybody, and Nobody. They were very busy people, but whenever there was an important job to be done, Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. When Nobody did it, Everybody got angry because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought that Somebody would do it, but Anybody realized that Nobody would do it. So consequently Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done in the first place.
Now they all worked in the same company, and their company held a competition: Could Anybody in the company produce the best logo? Everybody had a good idea. Nobody thought Anybody would follow it through. Somebody thought Anybody could work on it. Anybody thought Everybody should do it. Eveybody thought Somebody would do it. So Nobody did anything. Everybody thought Anybody could win something. Anybody thought Somebody should win. Somebody thought Everybody would win. Nobody thought Nobody would win. So, what did they win? Nothing!
