    Default The Blue Pigeon

    The mayor of Phoenix was very worried about a plague of pigeons in Phoenix.

    The mayor could not remove the pigeons from the city. All of Phoenix was full of pigeon poop. The people of Phoenix couldn't walk on the sidewalks or drive on the roads. It was costing a fortune to try to keep the streets and sidewalks clean.

    One day a man came to City Hall and offered the Mayor proposition. "I can rid your beautiful city of its plague of pigeons without cost to the city. But, you must promise not to ask me any questions. Or, you can pay me five million dollars and ask one question."

    The mayor considered the offer briefly and accepted the free
    proposition.

    The next day the man climbed to the top of City Hall, opened his coat, and released a blue pigeon. The blue pigeon circled in the air and flew up into the bright blue Arizona sky. All the pigeons in Phoenix saw the blue pigeon. They gathered up behind the blue pigeon.

    The Phoenix pigeons followed the blue pigeon as she flew southward out of the city.

    The next day the blue pigeon returned completely alone to the man a top City Hall. The Mayor was very impressed. He thought the man and the blue pigeon had performed a wonderful miraculous feat to rid Phoenix of the plague of pigeons.

    Even though the man with the pigeon had charged nothing, the mayor presented him with a check for 5 million dollars and told the man that, indeed, he did have a question to ask and even though they had agreed to no fee and the man had rid the city of pigeons, he decided to pay the 5 million just to get to ask ONE question.

    The man accepted the money and told the mayor to ask his question.

    The mayor asked: "Do you have a blue Mexican?"

    I think you're gonna spanked for that. Personally, I would have changed it to "blue illegal alien since we are getting more and more from central America these days.
