Rooster? Ring my bell!

Oh, great.  That title now has another song stuck in my head.  What is it with me lately?
Anyhow, y'all know I'm not so big on politics -- or at least discussing it and ranting and raving unless something funny happened that I can make fun of.  Like when President Clinton fell asleep at the Martin Luther King Memorial ceremony....(click here for more on that.) (If the link doesn't work it is: http://glasshalffullgal.blogspot.com/2008/02/one-last-one-today-because-it-has-to-be.html) Oh, and keep in mind I wasn't quite as censored back then; I used a lot of anacronyms. ;-) Anyhow, I received this in an email today and just thought I'd share.  Maybe you can catch a laugh?  Worth a try....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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 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.
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, could run for cover. To John's amazement, old 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. 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 result was 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 this year...the bells are not always audible. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So, listen to this "ring!" Happy Thursday Again!  
[Better get back to the birthday plans for my DH!] ;-D
