Sarah was in the fertilized egg business. She had several hundred young pullets and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs. She kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.
This took a lot of time, so she bought some tiny bells and attached them to her roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so she could tell from a distance which rooster was performing. Now, she could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.
Sarah’s favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen but, this morning she noticed old Butch’s bell hadn’t rung at all! When she went to investigate, she saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.
To Sarah’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.
Sarah was so proud of old Butch, she entered him in a show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges. The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the “No Bell Peace Prize” 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.June 22, 2018 at 9:42 AM #753970
First – Thank you for taking the time to type up a great joke.
Second – the voters didn’t let the pols sneak up with silenced bell in beak; the pols were clanging a gong , the voters were wearing noise deadening headphones and had their heads up their …..
Sorry to those who voted for populists and I may be wrong about Ontario. Maybe buck-a-beer is what is needed.
I’d prefer more social housing, an increase in the amount of social assistance, lessened need for food banks, pharma-care improvements, modern sex ed at school.
On the other , children-in-cages was an immoral, unfeeling , barbaric act of monsters. Hopefully it may have woken up the populists. Nah, they’re happy just waiting for coal-in-every-bucket.June 23, 2018 at 1:33 PM #754066
Chaz. Here’s a better joke for you. For the past 3 years George “The Schmooze” has been visible at almost every social event held in Osgoode ward, offering hot dogs “compliments of George Darouze”. Where do those hot dogs come from do you suppose? I’m betting dollars to hot dogs they’re coming from his office budget which means people are paying for their own hot dogs. And those who don’t attend? Well, I guess they aren’t getting anything for their tax dollar.June 23, 2018 at 2:37 PM #754098
Ah but, Sisco, some of us know that hotdogs aren’t good for us so we neither drink the Koolaid nor eat the hotdogs! Others are hungry and would eat the hotdogs regardless but pay no mind to the supposed donor. Then there are those who eat more hotdogs than are good for them and end up paying the price either later that day or down the road when their systems revolt. This last group rarely connects their problems to the ingestion of the hotdogs or, if they do, they don’t go the next step and look at who was pushing the hotdogs.
