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 wide
over the width of the hole and says, "Grab for my 'thingy' and pull yourself
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.
