The Indians asked their Chief in autumn if the winter was
going to be cold or not. Not really knowing an answer, the
chief replies that the winter was going to be cold and that
the members of the village were to collect wood to be prepared.
Being a good leader, he then went to the next phone booth
and called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is
this winter to be cold?"
The man on the phone responded, "This winter is going
to be quite cold indeed."
So the Chief went back to speed up his people to collect even
more wood to be prepared. A week later he called the National
Weather Service again, "Is it going to be a very cold
"Yes", the man replied, "it's going to be a
very cold winter."
So the Chief goes back to his people and orders them to go
and find every scrap of wood they can find. Two weeks later
he calls the National Weather Service again: "Are you
absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"
"Absolutely," the man replies, "the Indians
are collecting wood like crazy!"
Peekaboo Street (the US Olympian) apparently came into a lot
because of her Olympic performance this winter. Rather than
on herself, she showed a lot of character by donating it to
hospital. The primary facility the hospital needed was a retrofit
the Intensive Care Unit, so in her honor, the hospital board
to name the new unit, "Peekaboo, I.C.U."
A bird was flying south for Winter, but he had left it too
late and was frozen solid in a storm. He dropped down into
a pasture of cows. The biggest, fattest cow was doing a crap
there, and the bird landed in it. At first he was disgusted,
until he realised the poo was thawing him out! He started
crying out for joy as the ice melted. A cat that was nearby
heard the cries, walked over, saw the bird and ate it.
There are three morals to this story:
1. Not everyone who gets you into shit is your enemy
2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend
3. If you are in shit, keep your mouth shut
