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
