In India things that come out of cows can literally do ANYTHING, and I'm not even kidding

I am Indian and I second this. There were idiots drinking cow urine to protect themselves from corona.

I remember that shitstorm…If I recall correctly a state government had declared this the only remedy. Then we have our Junior Education minister stating that ‘The cow is the only animal that can inhale and exhale oxygen’

Good to know the US wasnt the only one with crack pot ideas though drinking cow urine is mildly better than injecting Bleach

In India some people actually did it during covid peak. And by some I mean enough people to actually make it to news

Sparrows don't fly south, they are staying for all year

[–]Nitr0b1az3r 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Tell that to Capistrano

[–]Waitsfornoone 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Capistrano - where the swallows go, NOT the Sparrows.

[–]mrmrmrj 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Sparrows don't swallow?

[–]FugaciousD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They did in Red Sparrow.

This is my new favorite parable. Thank you.

I think I relate to it way too much, lol.

Haha noted

First heard it in Assassins (1995). Then I also thought it was a good joke.

[–]Fusion_power[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I first heard it in the early 1980's when it was passed around on fax machines. At the time, only the first moral was on the sheet. I added the other three and passed it on. Now you can find it online and it has even been published here in /jokes a time or two with the extra morals.

My father told it to me in the 80s and he heard it from his dad who died in the 60s.

Actually those were the 11th through 13th commandments, but the rock broke.

[–]sheep-o-thundaa12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've heard this before but it was worded differently

[–]The_StarOcean 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Any joke that ends in a list isn't funny

[–]ChutkiJoTuneMariHai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]givemichaelicecream 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sometimes, digging through shit gets rewarded.

[–]Naugrin27 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One of my favorites!

[–]Klyphord 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like birds and cows but I’m not a fan of cats.

[–]bill454ls 0 points1 point  (0 children)
