Fwd: The little red hen

The little red hen called all of her Democrat neighbors together and said,
"If we plant this wheat, we shall have bread to eat.  Who will help me
plant it?"

                          "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.
         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 duck.

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

  "If I'm to be the only helper, that's discrimination,"  said the goose.

          "Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen.

  She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors to see.
   They wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share.  But the little red
               hen said, "No, I shall eat all five loaves."

             "Excess profits!" cried the cow.  (Nancy Pelosi)

          "Capitalist leech!" screamed the duck.  (Barbara Boxer)

        "I demand equal rights!" yelled the goose.  (Jesse Jackson)

              The pig just grunted in disdain.  (Ted Kennedy)

    And they all painted 'Unfair!' picket signs and marched around and
             around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.

  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 hen.

     "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 idle."

   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.

All hail the great Randian hero, the little red hen!

Hens don't have hands, they can't make bread! Must have got servants to do it, possibly in a sweatshop in Taiwan.

Also, lol, Nancy Pelosi is a cow and Ted Kennedy is a pig! Most original and comedic! Hur.

Wait, the story's over? I guess we need the sequel, where the hen uses her five loaves to pay for a new henhouse, and then the farmer loses all the bread because he was accepting too many moldy loaves, and the hen ends up out in the cold with everyone else.

How about a sequel wherein it turns out that the little red hen can only reap her harvest because of the millions of dollars in government handouts and subsidies to the agricultural industries that the rest of the animals pay for?

Somehow I detect a subtext to this charming barnyard story, but I'm not sure. It's so subtly drawn, not like that Left propaganda that beats you over the head with its ham-fisted, black and white caricature of the world.

Then, suddenly, the sky fell. The end.
