    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!!!
