Guide for American overseas voters

As with all self-help guides, the advice comes in the form of a little story....

John's Egg Business

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, could 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.

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 this year, the bells are not always audible!
