The Salesman, the Systems Analyst, and the Bear

The computer salesman and the computer systems analyst went to spend a weekend bear-hunting in the forest together.

They hired a log cabin, and when they got there, took their backpacks off and put them inside.

At that point the computer salesman said to the systems analyst: "You unpack while I go and find us a bear."

The systems analyst finished unpacking and then went and sat outside to drink a beer and await events. He did not have to wait too long.

Soon he could hear loud noises in the forest. The noises grew nearer -- and suddenly there was the salesman tearing across the clearing toward the cabin, pursued by one of the largest and most ferocious Brown Bears the analyst had ever seen.

"Open the door!" shouted the salesman. The analyst opened the cabin door. The salesman ran toward the door, then suddenly stopped and stepped to the side.

The bear, carried by its momentum, tumbled though the door and disappeared inside.

The salesman promptly shut the door on it, turned, looked at the analyst, and said:

"OK, you skin that one while I go rustle us up another."
