Why did the chicken cross the road?

    I know the traditional answer is " to get to the other side".
    but think how politicos would answer.

    under our government 70% of chickens have crossed the roads successfully.


    chickens crossing roads are our number one priority.

    Are they un-caged organic chickens?  Otherwise, I fail to see the humor in this joke about escaped animals from captivity.  Now, back to my chicken parm.....mmmm chicken parm.

    The reason the chicken crossed the road was to show the armadillo it could be done.

    That is some East Texas humor.

    It was stupid enough to randomly cross the road without it's head.  There goes chicken, there goes supper! sad

      The chicken was a female - the pecker was found on the rooster who didn't cross the road

    Chickens need to cross roads to enlarge their perspective.

    If unlucky they do not always achieve their goal but the good is in the trying.
    Foxes bet against them and sit on the other side waiting for dinner to be splattered.

      I think you are right. Their perspective needs to be enlarged.
