    Here's a story for you all

    Once upon a time there was a King who wanted to go fishing.

    He called 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 at once because 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 and I will continue on
    my way."
    So he continued on his way.

    However, a short time later, an absolutely torrential downpour of rain fell from the sky.
    The King and Queen were totally soaked and, well, their entourage chuckled upon
    seeing them in such a shameful condition.

    Rather furious, the King soon returned to the palace and gave the order to sack
    the professional upon immediate effect.

    He then summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and high paying role
    of royal forecaster.

    But 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 by-passed him and hired the donkey.

    And thus began the practice of hiring dumb *sses to work in the
    government and occupy its highest and most influential positions.

    And what's more, the practice is unbroken to this date...
