    Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?
    The question that everyone has been dying to know...Why did the
    chicken cross the road?

    KINDERGARTEN TEACHER: To get to the other side.

    PLATO: For the greater good.

    ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross roads.

    KARL MARX: It was historically inevitable.

    HIPPOCRATES: Because of an excess of phlegm in its pancreas.

    LOUIS FARRAKHAN: The road, you see, represents the black man.
    The chicken crossed the black man in order to trample him and
    keep him down.

    MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.: I envision a world where all chickens
    will be free to cross roads without having their motives called
    into question.

    MOSES: 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.

    RICHARD M. NIXON: The chicken did not cross the road. I
    repeat, the chicken did not cross the road.

    JERRY SEINFELD: 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?

    BILL GATES: I have just released the new Chicken Office 2000,
    which will not only cross roads, but also will lay eggs, file
    your import documents, and balance your checkbook.

    OLIVER STONE: The question is not, "Why did the chicken cross
    the road?" Rather, it is, "Who was crossing the road at the
    same time, whom we overlooked in our haste to observe the
    chicken crossing?"

    DARWIN: Chicken, over great periods of time, have been
    naturally selected in such ways that they are now genetically
    disposed to cross roads.

    EINSTEIN: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road
    moved beneath the chicken depends upon you frame of reference.

    BUDDHA: Asking this question denies your own chicken nature.

    RALPH WALDO EMERSON: The chicken did not cross the road, it
    transcended it.

    ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die. In the rain.

    COLONEL SANDERS: I missed one?

    Because he was a Road Island Red. (My guess is that only those with rural backgrounds will know what this means.)

    heck, I was fourteen years old before I figured out that armadillos aren't dead on the side of a Texas highway!
