It was bitterly cold and a little bird was freezing to death. He eventually lost his grip on the twig and fluttered to the ground. A passing cow paused and dropped a cow pat right on top of the little bird. The heat revived the little bird who stuck his head out of the cow pat and gave a loud tweet. A hungry fox heard this grabbed the bird and gobbled him up.

There are three important lessons to learn from this tale
1. The person who covers you in sh#t is not necessarily your enemy.
2. The person who gets you out of the sh#t is not necessarily your friend.
and most important:-
3 If you are in the sh#t but warm and happy keep your bloody mouth shut!
