GORDON THE ROOSTER
Tony the farmer was in the fertilised egg business. He had several hundred young laying Hens (Pullets) and eight or ten Roosters (Cockerels), whose job was to fertilise the eggs.
Tony kept records and any Rooster that did not perform, had its neck wrung and went into the Soup Pot. The failed Rooster would be quickly replaced. All of this 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 Tony could tell from a distance, which Rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the Farm House Porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.
Farmer Tony’s favourite Rooster was old Gordon, and a very fine specimen he was too. However, on this particular morning Tony noticed old Gordon’s bell had not rung at all!
Tony went to investigate. All the other Roosters were chasing Pullets, bells-a-ringing. The Pullets, upon hearing the Roosters coming, would run for cover.
However, to farmer Tony’s amazement, Gordon had his bell in his beak, so it could not ring. He would sneak up on a Pullet, service her very quickly and strut on to the next one, and so on.
Tony was so proud of Gordon, he entered him in to the West Berkshire County Fair and Gordon became an overnight sensation among the Judges. The result was that the Judges not only awarded Gordon the world famous No Bell Peace Prize, but, they also awarded him the Pullet Surprise as well.
Clearly, Gordon 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 due attention.
Do you know any Politician called Gordon?
