  •  The Rooster (none)

    Oh, absolutely. I don't know if you know the saying -- it's about why the rooster is the national animal of France. The joke is that it's because it's the only animal that will sing while his feet are stuck in shit. (The rooster is traditionally depicted on a farm crowing from the top of a mound of... something.)
