The first mate on a ship decided to celebrate an occasion with a little stowed away rum. Unfortunately, he got drunk and was still drunk the next morning.
The captain saw him drunk, and when the first mate was sober, showed him the following entry in the ship's log, "The first mate was drunk today."
"Captain," the mate said, "please don't let that stay in the log. This could add months or years to my becoming a captain myself." "Is it true?" asked the captain, already knowing the answer. "Yes, it's true" the mate said. "Then if it is true it has to go in the log. That's the rule. If it's true, it goes into the log, end of discussion," said the captain, sternly.
Weeks later, it was the first mate's turn to make the log entries. The first mate wrote, "The ship seems in good shape. The captain was sober today."
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. The result...The judges not only awarded Brewster the "No Bell Piece Prize" but they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well.
Clearly Brewster was a Republican. Who else could figure out how to win two of the most politically biased awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populous and screwing them.
CubaMark, I felt the same way about Cameo's "joke". However, from her previous postings in ehMacLand, I feel that she is sincere in stating that presenting a stereotypical and bigoted posting was not her intention.

Sinc, Dr. G, two true gentlemen and real sweethearts.
I was quite upset about Cubamarks remarks. I do not even pretend to know what goes on in politics, so other than a play on roles, didn't see such depth to my post. I certainly didn't take anything seriously about it and never supposed others would.
I do not care what religion, race or colour people are. I don't care if you can walk or not, hear or not, see or not, or if you are poor or wealthy, I don't care if you're gay or if you are pink with purple polka dots- everyone is a human being and has as much right as the other. I try not to judge anyone (though I am as human as you are) and hold no grudges. I do, though, hurt as much as anyone else.
I will not post any more politic minded jokes as it is obviously taken waaaay to seriously.
I say what I mean and if I want to offend someone, believe me, that someone will know it - bluntly and plainly. No offense to anyone was meant and I fail to understand what is meant by "right wing" AND I don't want to know either. I am not going to defend or discuss politics - obviously I don't understand enough to do so.
