The story of the turkey, the tree, the cow and the farmer

A turkey was staring up a tree. “I would so love to get to the top,” sighed the turkey, “but I haven’t got the energy.” Just then a bull walked by and heard the turkey speak. “Why don’t you eat some of my dung? It’s packed with nutrients. That should give you sufficient energy.”

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and after discovering that it wasn’t as revolting as he had initially thought, he ate some more. A little later he tried to reach the lowest branch of the tree, and was able to get onto it. The next day, after eating some more dung, he could reach the second branch. Finally, after a week the turkey could climb to the top of the tree, and looked out over the land, proudly.

A farmer walked by, who, without a moment’s hesitation, took his gun from his shoulder and shot the turkey.

Moral of the story – bullshit may get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.

Some light Entertainment after a hard workday

Great to get home in the evening after a long day in the office, and to relax … with humor :-)
The English are known for their peculiar British humor, and the Brexit produces lots of it. This article helped to relax my facial muscles, Brexit is always good for a smile! The comments beneath this article are tops too!

"It has been estimated by the Migration Observatory that the complexities of the current paper-based system, which includes completing an 85-page form, means it could take 140 years to register all 3 million EU citizens in Britain at current rates of processing if they all apply."

Amber Rudd says EU nationals in post-Brexit UK will need ‘form of ID’. It’s a gas! And this time no, or very few comments, by quitlers – seems they too are stunned into silence.

EU citizens in Britain post #Brexit vote: ‘I feel betrayed, not at home, sad’

Sad article about humans being affected directly by the Brexit referendum outcome. The intricacies of British laws to get citizenship seem to be a nightmare, I hope I never have to go through that myself. Sadly, the majority of those that voted in favor of Brexit won’t be very impressed by these stories: I suspect most of them have never even considered living anywhere else outside of the UK. Most likely, many have not even traveled much outside of their country or town… beyond an occasional trip to Mallorca perhaps.

Paris – best hot chocolate in ages

I love chocolate milk – and the one in the cafe Angelina in the Lafayette department story easily ranks among the very best. I complemented it with an eclair – pretty rich, so no dinner for me. You can buy the chocolate in bottles too, as a souvenir.
