A turkey was chatting with a bull.

bull_turkey“I really need help Mr. Bull. I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed the turkey, “but I haven’t got the energy.”

“Got it. What you can do is just you nibble on some of my droppings.” replied the bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.”

The turkey pecked at a lump, and sure enough found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.

So, the next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

This repeated the next day, getting up higher now in the tree.

Finally after a fourth day, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He gave out a proud call to Mr. Bull. “Look at Me – gobble, gobble – Mr. Bull.”

He was promptly spotted by a seasonal hunter, who shot him out of the tree.


Moral of the story
While bull might get you to the top, it won’t keep you there.
