A True Pullitician

Trevor was in the fertilized-egg business. He had several hundred young pullets and about 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 Trevor 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 favourite rooster was old Harper, and a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning Trevor noticed old Harper’s bell hadn’t rung at all! Trevor 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 Trevor’s amazement, Harper 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.

Trevor was so proud of Harper; he entered him in the Carleton County Fair, and Harper became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result?

The judges not only awarded Harper the No-Bell Piece Prize, but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

Clearly Harper was a pullitician in the making: Who else but a pullitician 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.

Do you know any pulliticians named Harper?
