Thought this was funny so I'm sharing with the class. ;D

Who will help me plant my wheat?" said the
little red hen.
"Not I," said the cow.

"Not I," said the duck.

"Not I," said the pig.

"Not I," said the goose.

"Then I will do it by myself," said the little
red hen, and so she did. She planted her crop, and the wheat
grew very tall and ripened into golden grain.

"Who will help me reap my wheat?" asked the
little red hen.

"Not I," said the duck..

"Out of my classification," said the pig.

"I'd lose my seniority," said the cow.

"I'd lose my unemployment compensation,"
said the goose.

"Then I will do it by myself," said the little
red hen, and so she did.

At last it came time to bake the bread.

"Who will help me bake the bread?" asked the
little red hen.

"That would be overtime for me," said the cow.

"I'd lose my welfare benefits," said the

"I'm a dropout and never learned how," said

The pig just grunted in disdain. (Ted Kennedy)

And they all painted 'Unfair!' picket signs and

Then the farmer (Obama) came. He said to the little red
hen, "You must not be so greedy."

"But I earned the bread," said the little red
"Exactly," said Barack the farmer. "That is
what makes our free enterprise system so wonderful. Anyone
in the barnyard can earn as much as he wants. But under our
modern government regulations, the productive workers must
divide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and

And they all lived happily ever after, including the little
red hen, who smiled and clucked, "I am grateful, for
now I truly understand."

But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She
never again baked bread because she joined the
'party' and got her bread free. And all the
Democrats smiled. 'Fairness' had been established.

Individual initiative had died, but nobody noticed; perhaps
no one cared...so long as there was free bread that 'the
rich' were paying for..


Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his memoirs.

Hillary got $8 million for hers.

That's $20 million for the memories from two people,
who for eight years repeatedly testified, under oath, that
they couldn't remember anything.
