I thought, "What organ in the body is the most important?"

The immediate answer was, "The brain". That makes sense...

Wait a minute, what organ in the body is telling me that?!

The kidneys and the lungs are the only major organs with such a combination of importance and failure rate that we have two of them.

But there are quite a number of organs major and minor, and not a few other body parts, such that if they shut down then before long everything else shuts down too.

(Your rectal muscles potentially have two failure modes. One is rather unpleasant and unsanitary. The other is eventually fatal if left untreated.)

You don't need brains to be a Boss.

When the body was first created, all the parts wanted to be Boss. The brain said, "I should be Boss because I control all of the body's responses and functions."

The feet said, "We should be Boss since 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."

Finally, the a$$hole spoke up. All the parts laughed at the idea of the a$$hole being the Boss. So, the a$$hole 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 a$$hole 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 sh1t!

Moral Of The Story: You don't need a brain to be a Boss----any a$$hole will do.
