Speculations about the Chicken

This post is dedicated to the Chicken Grandma.

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side.
Why did the duck cross the road?  It was the chicken’s day off.
Why did the chicken cross the playground? To get to the other slide.

If the following people were to answer the question of why the chicken crossed the road, this might be how they would respond. (Source: the Internet.)

ISACC NEWTON: Chickens at rest tend to stay at rest. Chickens in motion tend to cross the road.

DONALD TRUMP: I’ve been told by my many sources, good sources – they’re very good sources – that the chicken crossed the road. All the Fake News wants to do is write nasty things about the road, but it’s a really good road. It’s a beautiful road. Everyone knows how beautiful it is.

JOE BIDEN: Why did the chicken do the…thing in the…you know the rest.

BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.

DICK CHENEY: Where’s my gun?

AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white?

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won’t realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems.

ANDERSON COOPER: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

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, alone.

GRANDPA: In my day we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?

    • A bit heavy on Americans… I should do one for Prime Minister Trudeau – something along the lines of Apologizing for our historical transgressions against chickens, especially hens, with promises of reconciliation.
