once upon a time (bear with me it gets better), there was a lazy sparrow who couldnt be bothered to fly south for the winter. when it eventually came it was freezing, so the sparrow decided to go south after all. on his way though, his little wings froze and he fell to earth. he landed in a farmyard where a cow shat upon him. the little sparrow thought it was the end. but, the dung warmed him and defrosted his wings. happily the sparrow started to chirp. at that time however, old tom, the farmers cat, was strolling by and hearing the commotion went to investigate. as tom cleared away the dung, he found the sparrow and gobbled him up. there are 3 morals to this story: 1. not everyone who gets you in shit is your enemy. 2. not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend. 3. if you are happy in a pile of shit keep your mouth shut. from the little book of despair.
