The King ..... i am still laughing....

The king wanted to go fishing. 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 pet elephant. Upon seeing the king the farmer
said, "Your Majesty, you should return to the palace! I n 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 elephant. If I see my elephant's ears drooping,
it means with certainty that it will rain."

So the king hired the elephant. And thus began the practice of hiring dumb
idiots to work in the government and occupy its highest and most influential
positions. The practice is unbroken to this date and the Republican symbol
was born.
