    (New twist at the end.)

    Fred was in the fertilized egg business. He
    had several hundred young 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.

    Fred'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, would run for cover.

    To Fred'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.

    Fred was so proud of old Butch, he entered him
    in the Local Farm Show 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 coveted awards on our planet
    by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting
    populace and screwing them when they weren't
    paying attention.

    Vote carefully in the next election, you can't always
    hear the bells.

    Excellent - or he could persuade the pullets that his bell wasn't like other bells. It was a sign that he really cared
