Looks like we're about to lose another tree. I'm a bit surprised it hasn't gone over already.
I think that when a human engineer lives a good life, he's reincarnated as a beaver. Look at all the advantages:
No venture capitalists
No one nagging to have an IPO, either.
No government regulations
Imagine! The beavers are making all these changes to the environment, around creeks and streams, and they don't have to comply with EPA wetlands regulations!
And no Environmental Impact Statement!
For a beaver, a project is done when they're finished with it.
Beavers work on whatever they want to work on. And amazingly enough, they accomplish a lot.
Lots of sex
These are rodents, after all, and rodents are legendarily lusty!
No marketing department
Beavers decide for themselves what features to provide in their finished product.

No ankle biters.
No one feels they need to tell a beaver what's wrong with his work and how it would be better if he'd done it a different way.

Why take time away from what you're working on to discuss what management doesn't understand about your project?

If the job doesn't go as specified, either (a) it doesn't matter, (b) another species cleans it up for you, or (c) you can just eat your mistakes!
