Due to the current recruitment problem, the British Army recently recruited cannibals to fill vacant posts in the REME. "You are all part of our team now", said the CSM during the welcoming briefing. "You get treated the same as all the other recruits, and you can go to the cookhouse to eat, but please don't eat any of our other soldiers". The cannibals promised they would not. Four weeks later the CSM assembled the cannibals again. "You're all working very hard and I'm satisfied with your effort. However, the ASM has disappeared. Do any of you know what happened to him?" The cannibals all shook their heads "No". After the CSM had left, the senior cannibal said to the others, "OK, which one of you idiots ate the ASM?" A hand rose hesitantly. "You fool!" he continued. "For four weeks we've been eating 'Officers' and no one noticed anything. But, NOOOoooooooooo, you had to go and eat someone who actually does something!"
