From the Internet

I ran across this yesterday and thought it was really cute. My favorite answers are Dr. Seuss' and Grandpa's. Which one is your favorite?

Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

Pat Buchanan

To steal a job from a decent, hardworking American.

Louis Farrakhan
The road, you will see, represents the black man. The chicken crossed the "black man" in order to trample him and keep him down.

The Bible
And God came down from the heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And the chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.

Colonel Sanders
I missed one?

L. A. Police Department
Give us five minutes with the chicken and we'll find out.

Richard M. Nixon
The chicken did not cross the road. I repeat, the chicken did not cross the road. I don't know any chickens. I have never known any chickens.

Dr. Seuss
Did the chicken cross the road?
Did he cross it with a toad?
Yes! The chicken crossed the road,
but why it crossed, I've not been told!

Ernest Hemingway
To die. In the rain.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

Karl Marx
It was an historical inevitability.

Saddam Hussein
This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.

Ronald Reagan
What chicken?

Captain James T. Kirk
To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

Fox Mulder
You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens have to cross before you believe it?

The point is that the chicken crossed the road. Who cares why? The end of crossing the road justifies whatever motive there was.

The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

Bill Gates
I have just released Chicken Coop 98, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your check book — and Explorer is an inextricable part of the operating system.

Did the chicken really cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?

Ok, how about some CPA-nerd humor?

Q: Why did the auditor chicken cross the road?
A: Because that is what he did last year!


I'm such a tax toad.

My favorite is actually, "To show the armadillo it could be done." But you'd have to have lived in Florida to get it!
I stumbled on your website last year and just checked it recently. I will be following your chicken adventures with much curiosity because my husband had expressed a similar interest.
This is Mason's mom by the way. I can't give more clues than that in this public environment. :)
