THOUGHT YOU MIGHT ENJOY THIS ONE.

> Whitey was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred
young layers called pullets and eight or ten roosters, whose job was to
fertilize the eggs. Whitey kept records, and any rooster that didn't
perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot
of Whitey's time, so Whitey got a set of tiny bells and attached them to
his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so Whitey 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.

> Whitey's favorite rooster was old Brewster - a very fine specimen he
was, too. But on this particular morning, Whitey noticed old Brewster's
bell hadn't rung at all. Whitey went to investigate. The other roosters
were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters
coming, would run for cover. But to Whitey's amazement, Brewster 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. Whitey was so proud of Brewster he
entered him in the county fair... and Brewster became an overnight
sensation among the judges.

Prize," but they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well.
