Chickens

Max the farmer was in the fertilized egg business.
He had several hundred young layers (hens), called pullets and eight or ten
roosters, whose job was to fertilize the eggs.

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 Max 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, a very fine specimen he was,
too. But on this particular morning Max noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung
at all!

Max 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 Max's amazement, Butch 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.

Max was so proud of Butch, he entered him in the county fair and Butch
became an overnight sensation among the judges. The result...The judges not
only awarded Butch the "No Bell Piece Prize" but they also awarded him the
"Pulletsurprise" as well.

Clearly 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?
