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?
To steal a job from a decent, hardworking American.
The road, you will see, represents the black man. The chicken crossed the "black man" in order to trample him and keep him down.
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.
I missed one?

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.
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!
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.
It was an historical inevitability.
This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.
Captain James T. Kirk
To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.
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.
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?
