    John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several
    hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets', and ten roosters, whose
    job it was to fertilize the eggs.

    The farmer kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went
    into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of his time,
    so he bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.

    Each bell had a different tone so John could tell from a distance,
    which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out
    an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells. The farmer's
    favorite rooster was old

    Butch, a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular
    morning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all! John went to
    investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing.
    The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. But to
    Farmer 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.. The judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize
    but they 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... the bells are not always audible.......
