(thanks to Paul for sending this to me)

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 Renfrew 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.
