Fat bankers, nimble workers, smart customers - an MVC analogy

I came across a really interesting analogy of the MVC programming concept the other day on the Nuts and Bolts of CakePHP blog. It's a few years old, but I like the description of fat bankers, nimble workers and smart customers for models, controllers and views.  It's a really nice way of explaining the fat models, skinny controllers concept used by MVC frameworks like CakePHP (which I am currently using for a project at work).
