Lesson Number One
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit�saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing�all day long?" The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat�on the ground below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox�appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

Lesson Number Two
A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to�the top of that tree," sighed the turkey,"but I haven't got the�energy." "Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?"�replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients." The turkey pecked�at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength�to reach the first branch of the tree. The next day, after eating�some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a�fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon�he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the�tree.

Moral of the story
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Lesson Number Three
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold, the�bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was�lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the frozen�bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm�it was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm�and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the�bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat�discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him�out and ate him!

The morals of this story
  1. Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy.
  2. Not�everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
  3. And when you're�in deep shit, keep your mouth shut.
