Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road? Funny Answers!

Why did the chicken cross the road?

A group of people gave their interpretations below to solve the issue.

 

 

-Descartes: to go to the other side of the road.

 

-Plato: for the chicken, truth lies on the other side.

 

-Aristotle; It’s the nature of all chickens.

 

-Carle Marx: This is a historical inevitability thus it should rise up against it.

 

-Captain James Kirk: to go where no other chicken has gone before.

 

-Hippocrates: because of an excessive pancreas disorder.

 

-Martin Luther King: It dreamt of a world where chickens have the right to cross any road without justifying it.

 

-Richard Nixon: The chicken hasn’t crossed the road… I repeat she hasn’t crossed the road!

 

-Nicola Machiavelli: The important thing is that the chicken crossed the road, and it doesn’t matter why. Its urge to cross the road justifies any means to do it.

 

-Shamel: Because it saw a colorful rooster.

 

-Sigmund Freud: To wonder why the chicken crossed the road is an indication of suppressed sexual desires.

 

-Buddha: asking such a question is denying the nature of all chickens.

 

-Jim Carry: Finally! I thought it’ll never cross!!!

 

-Stephen Segal: You tell me!

 

-Charles de Gaulle: Maybe it crossed the road but not the highway!

 

-Einstein: whether the chicken crossed the road or the road itself moved towards it, this all depends on the chicken speed multiplied by the number of its footsteps.

 

-George W Bush: This action is a flagrant violation of the UN resolutions. Just the mere notion of the chicken crossing the road without punishment is considered a threat to democracy, freedom and justice. Hence, this proves to us that we should’ve unquestionably destroyed that road long time ago. So, to keep piece in the region, and in order to protect the values we fought for, we decided to send our troops to demolish all poultry farms in that area. This way, no other chicken will be tempted to cross the road again.

 

-Hamlet: This is not the question.

 

-Othello: It felt jealous and decided to revolt.

 

-Nietzsche: because when you look at the road for too long, the road will start looking at you.

 

-Shakespeare: It didn’t cross the road, but the road tempted the chicken to cross.

 

-Oscar Wilde: I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible.

 

-Mu`ammar al-Qadhafi : I forgot.

 

Please feel free to submit your own interpretation about this.

All of your answers are very funny and plausible answers!

But in all seriousness it was to get away from the KFC store that was being built on his side of the road.

Haha enjoyed the "twisted" quotes. Hmmm how about this one, FDR: "I (the chicken) have nothing to fear but fear for this side of the road" (and so it crossed to the other side). Well at least I tried! LOL

The newslady: "We are here at the scene and it's a sight to behold. The country road in question is quite fetching. Let's ask a local farmer: "Sir, did you see the chicken cross the road?"

"Weeelll little lady, whaha, I saw that chicken cross the road clear as day. Why she done it? Your guess is as good as mine."

(newslady again) Well as you can see this has been an exciting day on this country road, people came from all over the countryside to see the event. The reason why the chicken crossed the road remains a mystery though. Back to the studio....

aaahhhh... the romantic you ;-p

and no, not philosophizing, just pointing out the obvious that the chicken is indeed a crackpot for thinking that the peacock was a "colorful rooster"!


shamelabboush profile image

shamelabboush 7 years ago Author

According to some PHILOSOPHERS, that rooster was a peacock, but nay!! It was indeed a rooster, king of all of the roosters, that's why the chicken ventured into the unknown just for that wonderful creature :)


Bunchee profile image

Bunchee 7 years ago from Dubai, UAE

well they used to say that diamonds are a girl's best friend.. hihi!

i think the chicken needs glasses coz she didn't see a colorful rooster but a PEACOCK!! :-p maybe she has personality disorder! LOL


shamelabboush profile image

hehehehe

it's a country road Sharing I. :) And he's the hell of a cute and chubby rooseter around there :)

How funny..I'm there with Wilde :) Bunchee you made me giggle with crossing the road for a diamond! You are a cutie.

Hmmm and lol Shamel... depending on the colors of the rooster...cute! I think the rooster would have to have some very alluring colors in order for the chicken to take the risk of crossing the road...lol but wait is a secluded highway or abandoned road? lol:D


shamelabboush profile image

shamelabboush 7 years ago Author

Very cute one bunchee :) glad you like it...

and so you - Shamel: Because it saw a colorful rooster.

The chicken crossed the road because she saw a diamond! (so mee ;-p)
