Farm jokes → The Pheasant, The Bull, and Moralizing
There was once an old pheasant who was chatting with a bull. The pheasant said, ‘’I would love to get on top of that yonder tree, but I haven’t got the energy’’.
‘’Well,’’ said the bull, ‘’why don’t you eat some of my dung? It’s packed with nutrients.’’
So the pheasant ate some dung and found that it gave him enough energy to get to the first branch. The next day, he ate some more and it gave him the energy to get to the next branch. This cycle continued for a week. Finally, the pheasant was at the top of the tree, whereupon he was spotted by the farmer who ran into the barn, came out with a shotgun, and shot the pheasant right out of the tree.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Bullshit might take you to the top but it won’t keep you there.
