They say that once upon a time lived a cross-eyed man. The man had a pigeon which he liked a lot and cared for. Ironically, the pigeon was cross-eyed, as well.
One day, the man brought a small metallic cage to keep the pigeon in, as pigeons were being caught everyday by hunters. For he was a cross-eyed man, instead of inserting his bird through the door of the cage, he put it outside of it. And for the pigeon was cross-eyed too, instead of flying away of the cage, it entered it.
The tale exaggerates the co-operation of the bird with its caring owner, and how everything got worked out despite the obstacles.
