Once there was this lazy sparrow.  
"I will not fly south this winter, it is too much work".
His friends told him "come with us, you will freeze to death".
The sparrow remained defiant and stayed.
A few weeks later the wind turned colder, and the trees lost their leaves.
The sparrow shivered, but remained defiant.
Soon the weather took a nasty turn and frost lay on the ground.
The sparrow was now very cold.   So cold, he decided he may have made a bad decision.
The sparrow took off as fast as he could, but soon ice formed on his wings.
He fell to earth in a cow pasture.
Near death, a passing cow walked past and, as it happens, shit all over him.
Now it was a little smelly, but warm none the less and thawed out and warmed up the little sparrow.
The sparrow was grateful and like most birds began to chirp.
A passing barn cat heard the chirping, investigated, moved the shit away, and promptly ate the sparrow.


1. Just because someone shits on you does not necessarily mean they are your enemy.
2. Just because someone gets out of the shit does not necessarily mean they are your friend.

and lastly....................

3. When you are deep in shit, keep your mouth shut ! ! !
