A pheasant was standing in a field chatting to a bull. 'I would love
to be able to get to the top of yonder tree', sighed the pheasant, 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 pheasant pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave
him enough to reach the first branch of the tree. The next day, after
eating some more dung, he made it to the second branch.
And so on.
Finally, after a fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the top of
the tree. Whereupon he was spotted by a farmer who dashed into the
farmhouse, emerged with a shotgun, and shot the pheasant right out of
The Moral of the Story:
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.
