Smart ass!

This story goes to show next time you call someone an ass or donkey, think again, you might be complimenting them, rather than insulting… 😛

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 neighbor’s 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 neighbor’s 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!
