Be careful how you vote!

 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

 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 favorite
 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 cover. To 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
 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.  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, for the bells are not always audible!]
