I never knew there were rooster jokes.
From the "Rare Chicken" group. I'm posting this for Bob.
The farmer kept records -- any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. He bought tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so Tom could tell which rooster was performing: he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by listening to the bells.
The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch. On this particular morning Tom noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all! Tom went to investigate.
The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.
But old Butch had his bell in his beak so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and go on to the next one. Tom was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the County Fair. The judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize but 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.
