Question: I have four wings but cannot fly,
I’ve never laughed nor will ever cry,
As much as I’d love to leave the ground,
I toil away with nary a sound.
What am I?
Answer: A windmill. The typical windmill, like the ones Don Quixote chased, have four vanes or sails.
You might even say they look like wings. Windmills don’t have emotions, so they can’t laugh or cry.
And since they don’t have actual wings, windmills don’t get off the ground. A well-oiled little bugger won’t make a peep.
