An old Fable that was passed down

A Fable

by Wetbelly01

The author has placed a warning on this post for language.

Once upon a time...
There was a nonconforming sparrow who decided not to fly south for the winter.
However the weather turned so cold that it reluctantly started to fly South.
In a short time ice began to form on its wings and it fell to earth
in a barnyard, almost frozen.
A cow came by and crapped on the sparrow. The little fellow thought it was the end.
But the manure warmed it and defrosted its wings. Warm and happy, it 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 bird and promptly ate it!

The moral of the story is...
Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
Everyone that gets you out of shit is not necessarily your friend.
And If you're warm and happy in a pile of shit,,, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!

Seems like pretty good advice to me!
