Joke: A Shaggy Donkey Story

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously
for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up
anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a
shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.. At first, the donkey
realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s
amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the
well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit
his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and
take a step up.As the farmer’s neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of
the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of
the well and happily trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting
out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles
is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not
stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.
Free your mind from worries – Most “worries” actually never happen.
Live simply and appreciate what you have.
Give more.
Expect less

NOW …….

Enough of that crap. The donkey later came back, and bit the farmer who had
tried to bury him. The gash from the bite got infected and the farmer
eventually died in agony from septic shock.


When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ass, it always comes back
to bite you.
