Duly quoted

One day the parts of the body argued about who ought to be the boss.

The brain said, “I do the thinking around here, so I should be in charge.”
The hands said, “We do all the work around here, so we ought to be in charge.”
The feet said, “If we didn’t carry the body around, nothing could get done, so we ought to be in charge.”

Every part of the body made its claim, until finally the rectum piped up, “I want to be in charge!”
