THE CHESHIRE CAT

News Item:  Post election statistics show a majority of women voted for Obama while
men preferred Romney.

Once upon a time there was a farmer and his wife.  The wife brought home a
Cheshire cat ...

What a cute smile he has, she said stroking his soft fur.  All the grain the mice have
been stealing ...  he'll take care of that too.

But look at him, said the skeptical farmer.  All those teeth and not a decent fang
among them.  And the smile looks fake.  Do you think he can face up to some of the
big rats we are plagued with?  I have a feeling you made a mistake.

Just look at the way he purrs ...

The cat hearing this purred some more and settled more comfortably in her lap.  She
kept on stroking him ...

I still think you should have taken that big white Tom Mr. and Mrs. Massachusetts
were giving away.  Did you see the fangs on that thing?  No place for rats if that one
was around!

Oh, I dunno!  You have to catch the rats first and that one had problems putting one
leg in front of the other.  And why did it keep putting its foot in its mouth.  Never seen
a cat do that.

You seriously think that grinning pussy is going to face up to the really big rats?

We'll see!  He's smart.  He'll probably organize all the community cats to get rid of
them.

Yeah sure!  Or he'll offer them a compromise to eat half of what they have been
eating.  And they'll chase him down the road back to your lap while they carry on as
before.
