Why did the chicken cross the road?
Drew: Despite all the chatter in the mainstream media about the terrible conditions at the poultry farm and the suspected involvement of the regional offices of KFC, no one has picked up this good news, reported by heartlandblogger:
So we can see that there was a Midwestern solution available to that chicken, without the liberal press sticking its nose in. Iíve also learned here that the poultry farm is actually a tax write-off for a consortium of mouthy Hollywood movie stars.

Una Salus Lillius: Itís nobodyís gorram business whether a chicken crosses the road or why. Sheesh, people. It felt like crossing the road, so it did.

Cardie: Iíd like to have more context on this too. We need to know whether thereís any chance the chicken was compelled to cross the road, rather than going of its own volition. I am certainly against any forced crossings of any kind.

ĎHawk: Mmmm, chicken.
