Dangling Carrots

I am having to dangle alot of carrots theses days to get the sausage factory to increase its production.

You see, customers keep asking for more sausages.

To get more sausages from the same factory team, I need to dangle more carrots.

Of course I can increase production by bringing on new team members, but soon, they require more carrots as well.

All in all, it is a good problem, rather than a bad problem to have, but it is getting out of hand.

Firstly, to dangle more carrots, I need to source the carrots, and carrots don't grow on trees you know.

I must buy more land. The land needs to be tilled and the carrots planted and tended to.

After a few months the carrots must be harvested. Once harvested, they must be tied to sticks by specialists before I can use them.

The carrots on sticks must then be fastened to the sausage factory employees. Their eyes widen at the prospect and some even start drooling.

My tank is almost empty farming the carrots to dangle.

Many in the sausage factory run themselves into the ground chasing the dangling carrots and never get to see the fruit, or in this case the vegetable, of their labour.

Unfortunately, there are many weak links.

It really is a viscious old sausage ring.

Quite the conundrum. I have to bribe the monkeys in the enclosure not to throw their faeces at one another, but we don't have enough bananas to go around.

Sausage or not - is that actually the question? Or is it matter of spice and size?

Btw: Would have loved to see the Business Case ;-)
