Jon 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.
Jon'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, could run for cover.
To Jon'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.
Jon 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 year, you can't always hear the bells!!
