An old rooster, getting ready to retire from his gig on the farm, invites some up-and-coming young roosters to audition for the choice gig. The first young rooster shows up, and scats Dizzy's Groovin' High solo. Nothing happens. The sun doesn't rise. No dogs bark. The next young rooster steps up, and does Bird's solo on Night In Tunisia, and still nothing happens. A third, quite pompous rooster comes up, and scats Trane's Giant Steps solo. Nothing. No rising sun. No barking dogs. Finally, the old rooster says, "Why you sad-as....", clears his throat, gives a little cough, and cries out, "COCK A DOODLE DO...COCK A DOODLE DO!" The sun rises! Dogs start barking! The farmer wakes up! The old rooster looks at the younger ones, and shouts... "I'VE BEEN TELLING YOU SAD MOTHER#%&@*+S FOR YEARS! THE STANDARDS!! YA GOTTA LEARN THE STANDARDS FIRST!!!"
