    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 favourite 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


    To John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't


    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.

    Vote carefully next time, the bells are not always audible.

    That's a pretty nice story.
    Mind if I send it to my friends and family? [​IMG]
