Joke: Old Butch
John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets", and roosters, whose job it was to fertilize the eggs (for you city folks).
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, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He would 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 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 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 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.
Does this remind you of some of our politicians?

Happy Mother's Day
to all of you mothers out there!
Enjoy your special day
with the ones that you love
by your side...or by telephone or email.
My mother's day celebrations
have already begun.
First I gave my oldest daughter Sharon
her first ride on the back of my bike,
and she didn't even scream!
She treated me to supper at my favorite restaurant
for Mother's Day.
And did I mention that this was the FIRST time
that I left the house on my bike all alone,
without my soul mate Jimmy by my side.
I even stopped for gas,
which was another first for me:
Did you know that gas cost more than $1.29 per gallon now?
Just kidding, I know it's $3.09 :(
The next day I received a special card
and a beautiful hanging basket of
pretty petunias from Sandie & Glen.
Sunday we are going on a Mother's Day Ride
if weather permits and then out to eat.
I'm hoping that my grandson Brandon will join me
on the back of my bike for a ride.
Please don't forget to bring your helmet
and your sunglasses if you want to join us.
A bike might be helpful too,
but if you'd rather drive a car,
that's fine with me too!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY !!!
