Our friends at Kinaxis published some funny supply chain jokes that I thought I'd pass along.


1. What do you get if you play a supply chain country song backwards? You get your revenue back, you get your margin back, you get your on-time deliver back…

2. How many supply chain planners does it take to change a light bulb? None, the light bulbs are late.

3. What’s the difference between big foot and an accurate forecast? Big foot has been sighted.

4. Why is it better to have a woman as the buyer? Because a male buyer will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.

5. Why is it better to have a man as the buyer? Because a female buyer will pay $1 for a $2 item she doesn’t need but is on sale.

6. The easiest way to find that missing inventory is to place a new PO.

7. Demand forecasters are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but you still can’t help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

8. Employer: “For this buyer’s job, we need someone who is responsible.”
Applicant: “I’m the one you want. In my last procurement job, every time there was a problem, they said I was responsible.”

9. If you’re a supplier and you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of delivery dates.

10. There are two theories to getting an accurate forecast. Neither one works.
