    Gordon the Chicken

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

    The farmer's favorite rooster was Gordon, and a very fine
    specimen he was too, but on this particular morning Trevor noticed
    Gordon's bell hadn't rung at all! Trevor 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 Trevor's
    amazement, Gordon 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. Trevor was
    so proud of Gordon, he entered him into the London Exhibition,and Gordon

    became an overnight sensation among the judges.

    The Result? The judges not only awarded Gordon the *No Bell Piece
    Prize* but they also awarded him the *Pullet surprise* as well.

    Clearly Gordon 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 nothing other than being the best at sneaking up

    on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.
