    Butch the Rooster

    John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several
    hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets" and eight or ten roosters,
    whose job 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, and 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, 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 Butch, he entered him in the Boone County
    Fair and Butch became an overnight sensation among the judges.

    The result... The judges not only awarded Butch the No Bell Piece Prize
    but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well. Clearly 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
