    The mayor of Phoenix was very worried about a plague of pigeons
    in Phoenix. He could not remove the pigeons from the city. All
    of Phoenix was full of pigeon poop; the people of Phoenix could
    not walk on the sidewalks, or drive on the roads. It was costing
    a fortune to keep the streets and sidewalks clean.

    One day a man came to City Hall and offered the Mayor a
    proposition. 'I can rid your beautiful city of its plague of
    pigeons without any cost to the city. But, you must promise not
    to ask me any questions. Or, you can pay me one million dollars
    to ask one question.' The mayor considered the offer briefly and
    accepted the free proposition.

    The next day the man climbed to the top of City Hall, opened his
    coat, and released a blue pigeon. The blue pigeon circled in the
    air and flew up into the bright blue Arizona sky. All the
    pigeons in Phoenix saw the blue pigeon and gathered up in the air
    behind the blue pigeon. The Phoenix pigeons followed the blue
    pigeon as she flew southward out of the city.

    The next day the blue pigeon returned completely alone to the man
    atop City Hall. The Mayor was very impressed. He felt the man
    and the blue pigeon had performed a wonderful miraculous feat to
    rid Phoenix of the plague of pigeons.

    Even though the man with the pigeon had charged nothing, the
    mayor presented him with a check for 1 million dollars and told
    the man that, indeed, he did have a question to ask and even
    though they had agreed to no fee and the man had rid the city of
    pigeons, he decided to pay the 1 million just to get to ask ONE
    question.

    The man accepted the money and told the mayor to ask his ONE
    question. The mayor asked: 'Do you have a blue Mexican?'
