Picking the Right Supervisor

Here is a story a friend {mailed a friend}* who mailed it to me:

In a forest, a fox bumps into a little rabbit, and says,
"Hi Junior, what are you up to?"
"I'm writing a dissertation on how rabbits eat foxes" replies the rabbit.
"Come now friend rabbit, you know that's impossible!"
"Well, follow me and I'll show you."
They both go into the rabbit's dwelling and after a while the rabbit emerges with a satisfied expression on his face.

Along comes a wolf.
"Hello, what are you doing these days?"
"I'm writing the second chapter of my thesis, on how rabbits devour wolves."
"Are you crazy! Where is your academic honesty?"
"Come with me and I'll show you."
As before the rabbit comes out with a satisfied expression on his face; this time he has a diploma in his paw.

Finally, the camera pans to the rabbit's cave and, as everybody should have guessed by now, we see a mean-looking lion sitting next to the bloody and furry remnants of the wolf and the fox.

The moral: it's not the contents of your thesis that are important, it's your supervisor that really counts!!
