The biggest moral of the story is the wrongfulness of judging people by their appearances alone, although this is undercut somewhat by the abundance of short jokes directed at Lord Farquaad.

The above-mentioned can be proved by the example of Shrek who wants at the beginning of the movie to be left alone, but he learns by the end that no man (or ogre) is an island. 19
