No Bell Piece Prize

18 February 2014, 19:44

Old farmer Brown 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. Farmer Brown's favourite rooster was known as Julius Malema who was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed Julius Malema'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 farmer Brown's amazement, Julius Malema 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. Farmer Brown was so proud of Julius Malema that he entered him in the South African Cock Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges. 

The result was the judges not only awarded Julius Malema the "No Bell Piece Prize," but they also awarded him the "Pullets Surprise" as well. Clearly Julius Malem was a politician in the making. 

Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and doing them down when they weren't paying attention. Vote carefully in the next election, the bells are not always audible.
