If you enjoy corny email forwards--you'll love this!

This is not only a cute story but who wouldn't love this absolutely beautiful rooster, "Old Butch." 

Old  Butch

John was in the fertilized egg  business.

He had several hundred young layers  (hens), called '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.

John'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 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 Saint  Lawrence County Fair 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 this fall, the bells  are not always audible.
