Chicken humor. You’ve poultry seen a bunch of these, but it’s eggsactly the nonsense we need to start off our week.
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.
No one called to warn me which way that chicken was going. No little bird gave me any insider information.
Because the chicken was gay! Isn’t it obvious? Can’t you people see the plain truth in front of your face? The chicken was going to the “other side.” That’s what they call it — the other side. Yes, my friends, that Chicken is gay.
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. Alone.
I invented the chicken
Imagine all the chickens crossing roads in peace.
It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
It was a historical inevitability.
To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.
I may not agree with what the chicken did, but I will defend to the death its right to do it.
The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.
I have just released eChicken 2011, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook – and Internet Explorer is an inextricable part of eChicken.
Did the chicken really cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?
I did not cross the road with that chicken. What is your definition of chicken?
Where’s my gun?
I missed one?
On to the recipe. It’s fabulous. Crisp and garlicky.

I’m not chicken to play this song. I laugh every time. It makes it hard to sing along when you cannot stop giggling.
Bloodhound Gang-Three Point One Four
There. Monday is completely tolerable now.
Check out Bloodhound Gang and buy their music on the band’s Website.
Great song choice! :) we definitely need to hang out and listen to music because I’m starting to think of this as one of “our songs” and I’m not sure that’s ok…:)
Our song. Hilarious!
I am better company than a wooden clothespin, too. (so many favorite lyrics in that song…clothespin seems the safest for a comment thread.) :)
I made this for dinner tonight! It was great! Thanks for the idea! Peggy
I’m so glad you liked it!
You are too freakin’ funny…and witty. And yet another sign I know nothing about cooking – I thought scampi was a way to cook seafood. TM
