A knight was riding his charger along a dusty road when he came upon a sparrow lying on its back in the middle of the road. “Hey, sparrow, what are you doing there with your feet in the air?”
“Good Sir”, replied the sparrow: “I am holding up the sky”.
“But you are far too small for such a mighty task”, said the knight.
“Perhaps so”, said the sparrow: “but one does what one can!”
