Why did the chicken cross the road?
For the greater good.
It was a historical inevitability.
I missed one?
Chickens, over great periods of time, have been naturally selected in such a way that they are now genetically predisposed to cross roads.
Because it could not stop for death.
James T Kirk:
To boldly go where no chicken has ever gone before.
In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken had crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.
And God came down from the heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And the Chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.
You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens have to cross the road before you believe it?
Why does anyone cross a road? I mean, why doesn't anyone ever think to ask, "What the heck was this chicken doing walking around all over the place anyway?"
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!
I don't care. Catch it. I need its eggs to make my omelet.
To die. In the rain.
