It was a very cold winter night! A sparrow had spent two nights out

with only the meagre shelter of a tree. He decided that he couldn’t

survive a third night, so he left the tree to find a better shelter.

As he flew he got colder and colder, until his little wings froze solid

and he fell to the ground.

As he lay there freezing he realised that his end was near and he

prayed for death to come quickly.

Suddenly, in his semiconscious state, he had a feeling of being

enveloped in a warm covering.

He regained consciousness to find that a friendly cow had dropped a

luxurious deposit all over him.

The warmth gave him a new lease of life, and the sparrow’s comfort

made him feel very happy, so he started to sing. A passing pussycat

heard the chirping, located the heap, carefully removed the

excrement to reveal the little sparrow, and promptly ate him up……….

 

There are three morals to this sad story: –

 

1. If someone shits on you, they are not necessarily your enemy.

2. If someone gets you out of the shit, they are not necessarily your

friends.

3. If you are in the shit and happy – keep your mouth shut.

 

To state the same facts in a polished manner: –

 

1. If someone harms you unknowingly, they are not necessarily your

enemy.

2. If someone tries to help you out, they are not necessarily your

friends.

3. Even if you are not in very good condition but you are happy, keep

your mouth shut (don’t cry that I don’t have this and that).
