The Monday Morning WHIP // 53

whip53

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt about Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com) in over a year worth of WHIPS, it’s that he loves a football metaphor. See exhibit A, B, C and D. So when we saw that Frenchman playing european handball (http://www NULL.guardian NULL.co NULL.uk/football/blog/2009/nov/21/thierry-henry-handball-france-ireland) with a soccerball last week, we just knew Stan would find a way to write it into this week’s WHIP. So here you are kiddies. Learn a thing or two.

Much fuss in the sporting media this week about French footballer Thierry Henry committing a professional foul to help get his team through to the World Cup in South Africa next year.

For those of you who are not familiar with him, Henry is an exceptional talent. A creative genius on the football field. Yet he chose to cheat (http://i NULL.dailymail NULL.co NULL.uk/i/pix/2009/11/19/article-0-0746AED1000005DC-99_306x423 NULL.jpg) in order to help his team win.

Now I do not wish to condone his behaviour, because he is a dirty cheating Frenchman, but in order to achieve the ultimate prize you need to follow the mantra of Malcolm X – By any means necessary.

If you want a job, you need to be prepared to do what it takes.

And if what it takes is a little bending of the rules, bend them. If what it takes is a bit of brown nosing, then go get brown. And if what it takes is to lie, then be prepared to be a little loose with the truth.

Because if you don’t, somebody else surely will.
