her leg again.

driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.’

on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas
and the love of my life.’

Puff! He’s gone.

‘OK, you’re up,’ the Genie says to the manager.

Lesson 4:

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing..

A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, ‘Can I also sit like you and do

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. Al l of a
sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it..

Lesson 5:

A turkey was chatting with a bull.

‘I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree’ sighed the turkey,
‘but I haven’t got the energy..’

‘Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?’ replied the bull.
They’re packed with nutrients.’

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough
strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.

The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of
the tree.

He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

Moral of the story:
Bull Shit might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there….

Lesson 6:

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze
and fell to the ground into a large field.

While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.

As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize
how warm he was.

The dung was actually thawing him out!

He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy…
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.

Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung,
and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Morals of the story:
(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your
(3) And when you’re in deep shit, it’s best to keep
your mouth shut!
