Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I think this is very current affairs, and brilliant.

    Trevor the farmer, was in the fertilised egg business. He had several
    hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets' and eight or ten roosters,
    whose job was to fertilise the eggs.

    The farmer kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went into the
    soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of his time so he bought a
    set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a
    different tone so Trevor could tell from a distance, which rooster was
    performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report
    simply by listening to the bells.

    The farmer's favourite rooster was old Gordon, and a very fine specimen he
    was too. But on this particular morning Trevor noticed old Gordon's bell
    hadn't rung at all! Trevor went to investigate. The other roosters were
    chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming,
    would run for cover. But to farmer Trevor's amazement, Gordon had his bell
    in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and
    walk on to the next one.

    Trevor was so proud of Gordon, he entered him in the West Berks County Fair
    and Gordon became an overnight sensation among the judges. The result was
    the judges not only awarded Gordon the No Bell Piece Prize but they also
    awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

    Clearly Gordon was a pullitician in the making: Who else but a pullitician
    could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our
    planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them
    when they weren't paying attention.

    Do you know a Pullitician called Gordon.
