To the top!
A pheasant was standing in a field chatting with a bull. The
pheasant sighed, “I would love to be able to get to the top of
that tree over there, but I just haven’t got the energy.” “Well,
why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings? They’re packed
with nutrients.” replied the bull. The pheasant pecked at a lump
of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to
reach the first branch of the tree! And the very next day, after
eating some more, he reached the second branch! And so on. And
finally, after just a few days, there he was proudly perched at
the top of the tree. Where upon, he was spotted by a farmer who
dashed into the farmhouse, emerged with a shotgun, and shot the
pheasant right out of the tree.
Moral of the Story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it
won’t keep you there
