An ageing old rook was talking to a bull in a field.

“I wish I could fly to the top of that tree, but these days, I just

haven’t got the energy,” he said sadly.

“I’ve got an idea,” replied the bull. “If you eat part of my

droppings you’ll get extra energy because they’re packed

with minerals and vitamins.”

So the rook did as he suggested and each day ate part of the

bull’s droppings. Sure enough, after a couple of weeks, the

rook felt so revived he soared to the top of the tree and

proudly surveyed the surrounding countryside. However, he

was spotted by a farmer who immediately got hold of his

shotgun and killed the bird stone-dead.

“Oh dear,” sighed the bull. “I should have warned him. Bull

shit may get you to the top, but it doesn’t mean you’ll stay

there.”
