Butch The Rooster August 8, 2015

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

IMGP0864Sarah was in the fertilized egg business. She had several hundred young pullets’ and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.

She kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.

This took a lot of time, so she bought some tiny bells and attached them to her roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so she could tell from a distance which rooster was performing.

Now, she could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.

Sarah’s favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen but, this morning she noticed old Butch’s bell hadn’t rung at all!

2014-05-05 11-54-38_0042When she went to investigate, she saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

To Sarah’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.

Sarah entered Butch in the Dowerin Show and he became an overnight sensation.

The judges not only awarded Butch the “No Bell Peace Prize,” they awarded him the “Pulletsurprise” 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 coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren’t paying attention?

Aah . . . that’s better!

Perfect for this election time!

Politicians are a bunch of cock-a-doodle-doos!

Crowing Crone - August 8, 2015

Indeed they are

2. Kate Crimmins - August 8, 2015

The timing is right for this!

nrhatch - August 8, 2015

Especially after your dream about Pulitzer this week!

3. Pix Under the Oaks - August 8, 2015

Perfectly funny! Especially after Thursday’s craziness. CH wanted to watch… I stuck my ear buds in and listened to Smokey Robinson!

nrhatch - August 8, 2015

We didn’t watch. I don’t care enough about politicians to watch them behaving badly before the primaries are over.

4. Jill Weatherholt - August 8, 2015

Ha ha…this is perfect timing, Nancy!

nrhatch - August 8, 2015

I found it quite amusing given some of the bandy roosters who are presidential hopefuls.

5. L. Marie - August 8, 2015

“No Bell Peace Prize.” That’s hilarious!!! And sadly true these days.

nrhatch - August 8, 2015

I enjoy a good play on words. My favorite this week, a crossword puzzle clue: No-It-All.

Solution: Naysayer.

L. Marie - August 9, 2015

Ha! That’s great!!!

nrhatch - August 9, 2015

I’m so glad you didn’t naysay it!

6. colonialist - August 8, 2015

Very clever!
Another thing politicians do just like Butch is, against the odds, avoiding landing up in the soup!

nrhatch - August 9, 2015

A bunch of hopeful bell ringers . . . Ding Dong!

11. Debra - August 9, 2015

Clever! And as others noted, perfect for the current political season!

nrhatch - August 9, 2015

It used to be that hopefuls tossed their hat in the ring . . . but now the ring is overflowing with stuffed shirts!

12. CMSmith - August 9, 2015

Hilarious. The colorful picture caught my attention. The story entertained me. Thanks. Animals can be quite amazing.
