One day the Admiral was interviewing two Navy Master Chiefs and a Marine Sergeant Major for his personal staff.
The first Master Chief was a Surface Navy type and it was a great interview. At the end of the interview the Admiral asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?"
The Master Chief answered, "Why yes. I couldn't help but notice you are missing your starboard ear, so I don't know whether this impacts your hearing on that side."
The Admiral got very angry at this lack of tact and threw him out of his office.
The next candidate, an Aviation Master Chief, when asked this same question, answered, "Well yes, you seem to be short one ear."
The Admiral threw him out also.
The third interview was with the Marine Sergeant Major. He was articulate, extremely sharp, and seemed to know more than the two Master Chiefs put together. The Admiral wanted this guy, but went ahead with the same question.
"Do you notice anything different about me?"
To his surprise the Sergeant Major said, "Yes. You wear contact lenses."
The Admiral was impressed and thought to himself, what an incredibly tactful Marine. "And how do you know that?" the Admiral asked.
The Sergeant Major replied, "Well sir, it's pretty hard to wear glasses with only one ear."

young pullets and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs. She kept records and
any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.
This took a lot of time,so she bought some tiny bells and attached them to her
roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so she could tell from a
distance which rooster was performing. Now, she could sit on the porch and fill
out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.
Madeline¹s favourite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen
but this morning she noticed old Butch¹s bell hadn't rung at all!
When she went to investigate, she saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets,
bells-a-ringing, but the pullets hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.
To Madeline¹s amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it
couldn¹t ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next
Madeline was so proud of old Butch, she entered him in the Dowerin
Show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.
The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the "No Bell
Peace Prize": they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well.
Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out
how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on
the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren¹t paying attention?
Vote carefully in the next election. You can¹t always hear the bells.
