John the farmer was in the fer

John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business.He had several hundred young layers (hens), calledpullets and eight or ten roosters, whose job was tofertilize the eggs. The farmer kept records and anyrooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot andwas replaced.

That took an awful lot of his time so he bought a setof tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Eachbell had a different tone so John could tell from adistance, which rooster was performing. Now he couldsit on the porch and fill out an efficiency reportsimply by listening to the bells.

The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch, a veryfine specimen he was, too. But on this particularmorning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung atall! John went to investigate. The other roosterswere chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets,hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

BUT, to Farmer John's amazement, Butch had his bell inhis beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on apullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. Johnwas so proud of Butch, he entered him in the countyfair.
Butch became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result: the judges not only awarded Butch the"No BellPiece Prize" but they also awarded him the"Pulletsurprise" as well.
Clearly Butch was a Politician in the making. Whoelse but a politician could figure out how to win twoof the most highly coveted awards on our planet bybeing the best at sneaking up on the populace andscrewing them when they weren't paying attention?
