Well, Why not?
Since there is already a load of drivel no-one wanted to know about chickens then why not add chicken jokes. Admittedly many of them are among the worst jokes ever. Ground breaking research may soon reveal that some of them are even parasitic in nature and actually feed on humour. One of the wastes produced may be responsible for tendencies towards chintz.
Anyway the jokes...
Why did the chicken cross the road?
Apparently it is to get to the other side. What is that all about? It is not a joke but a statement and one with no humour to anyone over the age of 4 when you believe it is funny because you are told it is a joke. It seems to exist purely to support the plethora of other road crossing jokes where some other hapless creature has to do so because the chicken is otherwise unavailable for supposedly amusing reasons. These will suffice to keep children amused for a few more years and thinking back I can't work out how good adults were at acting amused or how I could have missed the glazed expression. I think that more accurate research is needed to find out when the innocent bubble is burst as to the viablity of these jokes.
Anyway, given the chickens apparent lack of dromophobia, the first one of these ties in nicely with Tim's original question on the previous page.
Why did the dinosaur cross the road?
Because the chicken hadn't evolved yet. Are your sides splitting yet?
Why did the chewing gum cross the road?
It was stuck to the chicken's foot. Graeme Trotter
Why did the punk cross the road?
Because he was stapled to the chicken. Kenny Watt
