Meme Monday - Anti-Joke Chicken
Anti-humor is described as “indirect humor”, usually with a punch-line that is intentionally not funny. Such as:
"What do you get when you cross a muffin with chocolate chips?"
"A chocolate-chip muffin."
The punch-line is actually an answer to the question, not an actual joke, making it funny in a different way than you expected. There are tons of examples, but probably the most popular anti-joke that we all know is:
"Why did the chicken cross the road?"
"To get to the other side."
Enter the Anti-Joke Chicken.
This meme is basically a picture of a chicken (possibly the Road-Crossing Chicken), with an anti-joke overlaid above and below. Some are as dry as the chocolate chip muffin joke, but some are much darker. These rely on shock value, in order to be funny. Below, here are around 20 of some my favorite Anti-Joke Chicken pictures
