Journey to the Top

A turkey was chatting with a 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."
"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?"
replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients."

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that
it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first
branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some
more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally
after a fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the
top of the tree. Soon he was promptly spotted by
a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Moral of the story:
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.
