On this auspicious day . . .

. . . when the first ever Madame Speaker picks up the gavel in Congress, my 90-year-old Libertarian father-in-law emails this punniness, which will put even Greg Flynn to the test:

Butch the rooster

John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets" and eight or ten roosters, whose job 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 one 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, 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 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 Butch the No Bell Piece Prize - they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

Clearly 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.

The moral of this story? Pay attention!

That depends

On whether the B.O.C. is for personal use, or, on the other hand, you're talking about the page-a-day B.O.C. desk calendar.

Rooster madness

How funny you should post this, as I:

1) Am a Libertarian also (though possibly that is no surprise:)

2) Have chickens - and a rooster!

3) Just had my rooster fly at me in challenge this morning. It may be time for soup!

But let me contribute my own Libertarian joke to the pun-fun:

A well-dressed man is walking through the streets of DC, and a rough fellow jumps out and shouts "Give me your money!"

The man says "Ha, now! You can't treat me this way. I ama US congressman!"

The thug replies "In that case, give me MY money!"

Please share that one with you F-i-L :)

So many puns, so little time.

All the other roosters got the Presidential Medal of Fry Them

The judges not only awarded Butch the No Bell Piece Prize - they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.


But it's nice to know that Pullet Seed is in charge of the House

Ugh.

Scraping the bottom of the feed barrel, so to peep.

There's a grain of truth in that.

I better quit while I'm behind.

Honest to G'd, there is a sign on 15-501

after passing thru Laurinburg that says "Buy a Cock and Pullet"!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Yup, it's true.

We were going to stop and take a picture of the sign, but we were informed that the man who put the sign up was nuts and would shoot at us if we did. So we just enjoy driving past it. :-D

I can't even begin to tell you how hard I'm laughing

It took me a while to catch my breath and two tissues to wipe the tears from my face so I don't short out my new keyboard crying over it. We don't have any great billboards like you do. Just cars and radio stations and such.... :)

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Not a billboard SD, Just a very large, hand lettered sign

Also noticed there are a number of skid marks on the road in that area too :)

Mo, I bet we could do it together.

Just without the pesky husbands who try to make us be sensible. Whaddya say? Road trip to Laurinburg?
