    The king wanted to go fishing, so he called on the royal weather

    forecaster and inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few

    hours.

    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 condition.

    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 thus, the democrat symbol

    was born!!!
