A Fishing story
The King wanted to go fishing. He called on the royal weather
forecaster and inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few
The weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain in the
coming days, So the King went fishing with his wife, the Queen.
On the way he met a farmer on his donkey.
Upon seeing the King the farmer said, “Your Majesty, you should return
to the palace! In just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to
fall in this area”.
The King was polite and considerate, he replied: “I hold the palace
meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and
experienced professional. And besides, I pay him very high wages. He
gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.”
So the King continued on his way. However, a short time later a
torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally
soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful
Furious, the King returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the
professional. Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the
prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster.
The farmer said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about
forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my
donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain.”
So the King hired the donkey.
And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the
government and occupy its highest and most influential positions. The
practice is unbroken to this date and the Democrat symbol was born.
