The Friday Groaner!!!!!!!!!

My great friend, M.E., probably best known to a lot of you who stop here as XtremeEnglish, sent a rather bawdy, yet timely and philosophical, contribution that should give y'all a really good groooaaaannnn!!! Enjoy! I certainly did!!!!!!


John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets", and ten roosters, whose job it 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 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'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 Renfrew County Fair and Butch 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 Pulletsur Prize 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?

Vote carefully . . . the bells are not always audible!


Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!!

    This groaner was the BEST yet. I loved it, and coming in the midst of this political hysteria we are in right now, it was most appropriate........

  5. That is GREAT! When I know I am reading a groaner, I am looking for key words to see if I can anticipate the punch line, but that one got me!

    very appropriate at this political time as well!
    this made me laugh.
