A horse and a chicken are playing in a meadow. The horse falls into a
mud hole and is sinking. He calls to the chicken to go and get the
farmer to help pull him out to safety. The chicken runs to the farm
but the farmer can't be found. So he drives the farmer's Mercedes back
to the mud hole and ties some rope around the bumper. He then throws
the other end of the rope to his friend, the horse, and drives the car
forward saving him from sinking!
A few days later, the chicken and horse are playing in the meadow
again and the chicken falls into the mud hole. The chicken yells to
the horse to go and get some help from the farmer. The horse says, "I
think I can stand over the hole!" So he stretches over the width of
the hole and says, "Grab for my 'thingy' and pull yourself up." And
the chicken did and pulled himself to safety.
The moral of the story: If you are hung like a horse, you don't need a
Mercedes to pick up a chick.
