"I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn. Later that day, when I was in front of the judge, I plead 'no contest' to the charges of hoeing in the garden and enticing a sparrow to alight upon my shoulder to act as an epaulet. Hoeing in the garden, okay, you got me. But that sparrow thing, I mean, come on, seriously Dude, that thing just came out of nowhere. And anyway, like, WTF, who made that law?"
