View Full Version : The moral of the story.

There once was a happy little fly buzzing around a barn. One day,
she happened upon a large pile of fresh cow manure.

Since it had been hours since her last meal and she was feeling
hunger pangs, she flew down to the irresistible delicacy and began
to munch out.

She ate...

and ate...

and then ..

she ate some more!!!

Finally, she decided she'd had plenty. She washed her face with
front legs, belched a few times, then attempted to fly away.
But had pigged out far too much and could not get off the ground.

She looked around wondering what to do about this unpleasant
situation when she spotted a pitchfork leaning upright against the
barn wall. She had found a solution!! She realized if she could just
become airborne that she would be able to fly again.

So, she painstakingly, climbed to the top of the handle. Once at the
top she took a deep breath, spread her tiny fly wings, and leaped
confidently into the air. She dropped like a rock and splattered all
over the floor...........Dead Fly....

The moral of this sad story?

"Never fly off the handle when you know you're full of sh!t ."

So, is the idea here to name the fly after a PPRuNer who flies of the handle when you know they're full of sh!t?

Got an idea of one name.
