John's Chicken Farm
John was in the egg business. He had several hundred young
layers (hens), called 'pullets', and ten roosters to fertilize
them. He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into
the soup pot and was replaced.
This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and
attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone,
so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing.
Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency
report by just listening to the bells.
John's favorite rooster, Obama, was a very fine specimen, but
this morning he noticed Obama's bell hadn't rung at all! When he
went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing
pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters
coming, would run for cover.
To John's amazement, Obama had thought of a way to do it without
work, he had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd
sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.
John was so proud of Obama, he entered him in the Chicago County
Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.
The result was the judges not only awarded Obama the No Bell
Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.
Clearly Obama was a politician. Who else but a politician could
figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on
our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and
screwing them when they weren't paying attention.
Vote carefully next fall, the bells are not always audible.
