A pheasant was standing in a field chatting to a bull. "I would love to beable to get to the top of yonder tree’, sighed the pheasant, ‘but I haven’tgot 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 himenough strength to reach the first branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Andso on. Finally, after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top ofthe tree. Whereupon he was spotted by a farmer who dashed into thefarmhouse, emerged with a shotgun, and shot the pheasant right out of thetree. Moral of the Story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won’t keep youthere.
