The political process

My thanks to Tony for this little gem. Anyone with an interest in how politics works will enjoy this one.

John was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers

(hens), called ‘pullets,’ and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs. He kept

records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was


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, old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but this

morning he noticed old Butch’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, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it didn’t

ring. He’d sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair

and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The judges not only awarded old Butch the ‘No Bell Piece Prize’

but 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 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 election, the bells are not always audible.
