Manure Pile Moral

My dad told me this one tonight, and I could not resist sharing...

One fine day, two flies were feasting on a manure pile. As they reached their fill, one fly said to the other “you should stop eating – otherwise you’ll be too heavy to fly!” The second fly said “buzz off!” and kept on eating. The first fly took wing and flew away.

Later, gorged on manure, the second fly tried to take off and could not. He spied a pitch-fork sticking up from the pile and thought “I’ll climb up the handle, then take off!” So, up he went. He launched himself from the top of the pitchfork, but was still too heavy to stay airborne. Down he went, crashed into the manure pile and died.

And the moral of this story?

* Don’t fly off the handle when you’re full of shit! *
