anecdotes: the story of the sparrow

Once upon a time,
there was a non-conforming sparrow who decided not to fly south for the
winter. However, when the weather turned very cold in a short time ice
began to form on his wings and he fell to earth in a farmyard, almost
frozen to death.

A cow passed by and dropped a little present on the little sparrow. Dung.

The sparrow thought it was the end. But the manure warmed him and defrosted his wings.

Warm and happy, able to breath, he started to sing.

A
large cat, hearing the chirping, found out where it was coming from. He
snatched the dung-covered bird, clawed away the manure, and promptly
ate him.

The moral of the story is:

1. Not everyone who poops on you is necessarily your enemy
2. Not everyone who gets you out of crap is not necessarily your friend
