Murphy the Mayor of San Onofre was very worried about a plague of pigeons at the park. The Mayor could not remove the pigeons from the beach. All of San Onofre was full of pigeon poop. The people couldn't walk on the beach or drive on the roads. It was costing a fortune to try to keep the area clean.
One day a man came to San Onofre and offered the Mayor a proposition. "I can rid your beautiful park of its plague of pigeons without cost. 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 the bluffs, opened his coat, and released a red pigeon. The red pigeon circled in the air and flew up into the bright blue sky. All the pigeons saw the red pigeon. They gathered up behind the red pigeon and followed her as she flew eastward out of the park
The next day the red pigeon returned completely alone to the man atop the bluffs. The Mayor was very impressed. He thought the man and the red pigeon had performed a wonderful miraculous feat to rid San Onofre 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 park 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 any red Mexicans?"
