A Bit of Risk Management Humor

Although you may not be professionally enagaged in risk management activities, you and everyone else in the world is in fact a risk management practitioner.  If you buckle your seat, make a restaurant reservation or have life insurance, you’re managing risk.  I wrote this limerick many years ago to offer an everyday, albeit quirky, example of risk management behavior.

A risk manager with a very sick pet

Found a way to hedge his risk bet.

He so loved his hound

That he searched ‘til he found

A combination taxidermist and vet.
