The Blind Bunny
One morning a blind bunny was hopping down the bunny trail and tripped over a
large snake and fell, kerplop right on his twitchy little nose.
'Oh please excuse me,' said the bunny. 'I didn't mean to trip over you, but
I'm blind and can't see.'
'That's perfectly all right,' replied the snake. 'To be sure, it was my
fault. I didn't mean to trip you, but I'm blind too, and I didn't see you
coming. By the way, what kind of animal are you?'
'Well, I really don't know,' said the bunny. 'I'm blind, and I've never seen
myself. Maybe you could examine me and find out.'
So the snake felt the bunny all over, and he said, 'Well, you're soft, and
cuddly, and you have long silky ears, and a little fluffy tail and a dear
twitchy little nose. You must be a bunny rabbit!'
The bunny said, 'I can't thank you enough. But by the way, what kind of
animal are you?'
The snake replied that he didn't know either, and the bunny agreed to examine
him, and when the bunny was finished, the snake asked, 'Well, what kind of an
animal am I?'
The bunny had felt the snake all over, and he replied,
'You're cold, you're slippery, and you haven't got any balls...You must be a POLITICIAN'
I had a reply from a politician in my mail box yesterday. I have filed it. I have noted over the years a definite tendency for this category of people to forward matters on to other people - and this can be (as in the case) to another politician, or if that politician gets stuck pass it on to the bureaucracy (who are often unable to deal with many issues that politicians seem unable to comprehend as they are operating in accordance with laws passed by other politicians). In the meantime they get generous superannuation, plenty of perks including overseas trips.
I'm hoping a few of them choke on the smog in Beijing.
