The Chicken Farmer.

John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred
young layers (hens), called "pullets", and ten roosters, whose job it was to
fertilize the eggs (for you city folks).

The farmer kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went
into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of his time, so he bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.
Each bell had a different tone so John could tell from a distance which rooster was performing.

Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by
listening to the bells. The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch, and a
very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all!

John went to investigate.

The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets,
hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

But to Farmer John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it
couldn't ring. He would 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 Butch became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result...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!!
