“Teamwork means never having to take all the blame yourself”

"Teamwork means never having to take all the blame (yourself)” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts, bumper stickers and posters. The saying has been cited in print since at least 1998 and is of unknown authorship.
