I think it comes from the same dictionary that defines "Feature" as a bug you can't fix.

However, a "Solution" is really just a way of achieving your aim...

Kind of like. I'm a consultant!!!

A good joke about such follows.


A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on display.

While he was there, another customer walked in and went over to a cage at

the side of the shop and took out a monkey.

The shopkeeper fits a collar and leash, hands it to the customer, saying,

"That'll be $5000." The customer paid and walked out with his monkey.

Startled, the tourist went over to the shopkeeper and said, "That was a very

expensive monkey. Most of them are only a few hundred dollars. Why did it

cost so much?"

The shopkeeper answered, "Ah, that monkey can program in C - very fast,

tight code, no bugs, well worth the money."

The tourist looked at the monkey in another cage. " That one's even more

expensive - $10,000! What does it do?"

"Oh, that one's a C++ monkey; it can manage object-oriented programming,

Visual C++, even some Java. All the really useful stuff," said the


The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a third monkey in a

cage of its own. The price tag around its neck read $50,000. He gasped to

the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the others put together! What

on earth does it do?"

The shopkeeper replied, "Well, I haven't actually seen it do anything, but

it says it's a consultant."
