Five cannibals got appointed as engineers in a Defense Department organization.
During the welcoming ceremony, the boss said, "You're all part of our team now. You can earn good money here, and you can go to the cafeteria for something to eat. So don't trouble the other employees." The cannibals promised not to trouble the other employees.
Four weeks later the boss returned and said, "You're all working very hard, and I'm very satisfied with all of you. However, one of our housekeepers has disappeared. Do any of you know what happened to her?"
The cannibals disavowed all knowledge of the missing housekeeper. After the boss had left, the leader of the cannibals said to the others, "Which of you idiots ate the cleaning lady?"
A hand raised hesitantly.
The leader of the cannibals said, "You fool! For four weeks we've been eating Team Leaders, Division Chiefs and Project Managers so no-one would notice anything, and you have to go and eat the cleaning lady!"
