IJMC - Just Singing in the Shit...
Now before anyone goes and gets offended, that is not profanity. This
post is truly about shit. Cow manure to be exact. And in case you forgot
or are new since last week, I will be out of town again this weekend so
four posts go out tonight. Just don't open them until the day marked on
their subject line! -dave
Once upon a time, there was a nonconforming sparrow who decided not to
fly south for the winter. However, soon the weather turned so cold that
he reluctantly started southward. 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 then 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
hearing the chirping, investigated the sounds. The cat cleared away the
manure, found the chirping sparrow and promptly ate him.
THE MORAL OF THE STORY
1. Everyone who shits on you is not necessarily your enemy.
2. Everyone who gets you out of shit is not necessarily your friend.
3. And, if you're warm and happy in a pile of shit, keep your mouth shut!
