The Donkey (NSFW)

Back To Main
Back To Humor

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into an abandoned well. The animal cried pitifully for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. He considered that the well needed to be covered up anyway and the animal was old.
Finally he decided that it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors 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 looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw.
With each shovel of dirt that hit the donkey’s back, he would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would keep shaking it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone watched in amazement 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 pit is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells by not stopping and 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 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 an agonizing death from the infection.

MORAL FROM TODAY’S LESSON: When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ass, it always comes back to bite you.
