    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.

    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, 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'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...The judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece
    Prize but they 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!

    Thanks, I needed to read something good after the woman on the toilet for two years thread.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
