    I don’t think I should answer my own question but I will point out that it makes a difference whether it’s an African or European swallow.

    Also, has the swallow had a large meal recently?

    Is the swallow sporting any prosthetic limbs?

    Is the swallow encumbered by feelings of guilt?

    Are the answers to all these answers presumed in the negative by use of the word “unladen”?

    I refuse to answer since a wrong response will result in my being hurled into the pit of endless torment. However, please check out

    I like that the site also answers the “related” question: What is the capital of Assyria?
