The Little Sparrow

Once upon a time, there was a non-conforming sparrow who
decided not to fly south for the winter. However, soon the
weather turned so cold that he reluctantly decided to head
south. In a short time, ice began to form on his wings and
he fell to earth in a barnyard, almost frozen.

A cow passed by and crapped on the little sparrow. The sparrow
thought it was the end. But the manure warmed him and defrosted
his wings. Warm and happy, able to breathe, he started to sing.

Just then a large cat came by and investigated the sounds.
The cat cleared away the manure, found the chirping bird and
promptly ate him.

The moral of the story:

1. Everyone who craps on you is not necessarily your enemy.
2. Everyone who gets you out of the crap is not necessarily
your friend.
3. And, if you're warm and happy in a pile of crap, keep your
mouth shut.
