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 started to fly south. In a short time ice began to form on his wings and he fell into a barnyard, almost frozen.
A cow passed by and cr*pped on the little bird. 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 hearing the chirping and investigated the sounds.
The cat cleared away the manure, found the chirping bird, and promptly ate him.
The moral of the story:
Everyone who sh*ts on you is not necessarily your enemy.
Everyone who gets you out of the sh*t is not necessarily your friend.
And if you find yourself in a pile of sh*t, keep your mouth shut.
