Who moved the King's Cheese?

The pohick ladies decided to stage an intervention today because of the eradic behavior that King Jake has been exhibiting all week concerning his mouse obsession. As part of the intervention, they gave Jake a copy of the book, Who Moved My Cheese. The message of Who Moved My Cheese is that change can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective. Who Moved My Cheese? is a parable that takes place in a maze. Four beings live in that maze: Sniff and Scurry are mice--nonanalytical and nonjudgmental, they just want cheese and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Hem and Haw are "littlepeople," mouse-size humans who have an entirely different relationship with cheese. It's not just sustenance to them; it's their self-image. Their lives and belief systems are built around the cheese they've found. Most of us reading the story will see the cheese as something related to our livelihoods--our jobs, our career paths, the industries we work in--although it can stand for anything, from health to relationships. The point of the story is that we have to be alert to changes in the cheese, and be prepared to go running off in search of new sources of cheese when the cheese we have runs out. The ladies are hoping Jake will actually read the book since it talks about cheese and will move on with his life.

I recently read the book Who Moved My Cheese and it reminded me of a movie that I saw a while ago called the cube. It is a Canadian made Sci-Fi film that had marginal acting but the plot was really cool, kind of like the Cheese story. I would recommend it for the Sci-Fi buff, but try not to get distracted by the script and acting, the plot and your imagination can get some utility out of it. You could say that the Cheese and life is synonymous in this story. I included a couple summaries in case you would like to rent it at your local Blockbuster.

Seven total strangers awaken one day to find themselves alone in a cubical maze. Once they meet, they work together using their given skills and a talent to survive the deadly traps which guard many of the colored cubic rooms. Using Leaven's mathematical skills, they press forward, upward, and downward through the hatches to try and find the outer shell.
Seven different people, each from a very different walk of life, awaken to find themselves inside a giant cube with thousands of possible rooms. Each has a skill that becomes clear when they must band together to get out: a cop, a math wiz, a building designer, a doctor, an escape master, and a disabled man. Each plays a part in their thrilling quest to find answers as to why they've been imprisoned.

I find it funny that you would steal a failed defense strategy. One that Saddam tried to use in his trail. I hear that it went so bad that the bailiffs beat him up. They say you could hear snickering from the audience in the courtroom when he said that he read the book Who Moved My Cheese which changed his whole way of thinking, stating he learned his lesson and that he would not do those bad things again if they let him go. He supposedly got all mad and started yelling at the forum and the bailiffs beat him up again. King Jake can you Box? I hope you use this prescience before you commit to a defense strategy.
