The fable of the chicken and the pig

Scrumtoon - The fable of the chicken and the pig

A pig and a chicken are walking down a road. The chicken looks at the pig and says, “Hey, why don’t we open a restaurant?” The pig looks back at the chicken and says, “Good idea, what do you want to call it?” The chicken thinks about it and says, “Why don’t we call it ‘Ham and Eggs’?” “I don’t think so,” says the pig, “I’d be committed, but you’d only be involved.” 1

Moral of the story to know well your position in the project and avoid becoming a ‘rooster’ by offering harmful feedback and opinions and wasting everyones time and energy.
