Butch the rooster

Madeline was  in the fertilized egg business. She had several hundred
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
one.

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.
