    *THE CHICKEN BUSINESS*
    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 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...the bells are not always audible

    This joke was sent to me by my 91 year old Grandmother - she loves emailing jokes to everyone in our family and she knows that I love my chickens.
