    Why did the chicken cross the road...

    Omg...

    In respect and honour of all the geeks in the world (universe/multiverse) - I have to share this *nods firmly and clicks Submit New Thread*


    ---------


    Plato: For the greater good.

    Karl Marx: It was a historical inevitability.

    Machiavelli: So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely chicken's dominion maintained.

    Hippocrates: Because of an excess of yellow bile in its gallbladder.

    Jacques Derrida: Any number of contending discourses may be discovered within the act of the chicken crossing the road, and each interpretation is equally valid as the authorial intent can never be discerned, because structuralism is DEAD, DAMMIT, DEAD!

    Thomas de Torquemada: Give me ten minutes with the chicken and I'll find out.

    Timothy Leary: Because that's the only kind of trip the Establishment would let it take.

    Douglas Adams: Forty-two.

    Nietzsche: Because if you gaze too long across the Road, the Road gazes also across you.

    Oliver North: National Security was at stake.

    B.F. Skinner: Because the external influences which had pervaded its sensorium from birth had caused it to develop in such a fashion that it would tend to cross roads, even while believing these actions to be of its own free will. The chicken's action was reinforced, hence, it was done.

    Carl Jung: The confluence of events in the cultural gestalt necessitated that individual chickens cross roads at this historical juncture, and therefore synchronicitously brought such occurrences into being.

    Jean-Paul Sartre: In order to act in good faith and be true to itself, the chicken found it necessary to cross the road.

    Ludwig Wittgenstein: The possibility of "crossing" was encoded into the objects "chicken" and "road", and circumstances came into being which caused the actualization of this potential occurrence.

    Albert Einstein: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.

    Aristotle: To actualize its potential.

    Buddha: If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken-nature.

    Howard Cosell: It may very well have been one of the most astonishing events to grace the annals of history. An historic, unprecedented avian biped with the temerity to attempt such an herculean achievement formerly relegated to #### sapien pedestrians is truly a remarkable occurence.

    Salvador Dali: The Fish.

    Charles Darwin: It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees.

    Emily Dickinson: Because it could not stop for death.

    Epicurus: For fun.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson: It didn't cross the road; it transcended it.

    Johann von Goethe: The eternal hen-principle made it do it.

    Ernest Hemingway: To die. In the rain.

    Werner Heisenberg: We are not sure which side of the road the chicken was on, but it was moving very fast.

    David Hume: Out of custom and habit.

    Jack Nicholson: 'Cause it [censored] wanted to. That's the [censored] reason.

    Pyrrho the Skeptic: What road?

    Ronald Reagan: I forget.

    John Sununu: The Air Force was only too happy to provide the transportation, so quite understandably the chicken availed himself of the opportunity.

    The Sphinx: You tell me.

    Mr. T.: If you saw me coming you'd cross the road too!

    Henry David Thoreau: To live deliberately ... and suck all the marrow out of life.

    Mark Twain: The news of its crossing has been greatly exaggerated.

    Molly Yard: It was a hen!

    Zeno of Elea: To prove it could never reach the other side.

    Chaucer: So priketh hem nature in hir corages.

    Wordsworth: To wander lonely as a cloud.

    The Godfather: I didn't want its mother to see it like that.

    Keats: Philosophy will clip a chicken's wings.

    Blake: To see heaven in a wild fowl.

    Othello: Jealousy.

    Dr. Johnson: Sir, had you known the Chicken for as long as I have, you would not so readily enquire, but feel rather the Need to resist such a public Display of your own lamentable and incorrigible Ignorance.

    Mrs. Thatcher: This chicken's not for turning.

    Supreme Soviet: There has never been a chicken in this photograph.

    Oscar Wilde: Why, indeed? One's social engagements whilst in town ought never expose one to such barbarous inconvenience - although, perhaps, if one must cross a road, one may do far worse than to cross it as the chicken in question.

    Kafka: Hardly the most urgent enquiry to make of a low-grade insurance clerk who woke up that morning as a hen.

    Swift: It is, of course, inevitable that such a loathsome, filth-ridden and degraded creature as Man should assume to question the actions of one in all respects his superior.

    Macbeth: To have turned back were as tedious as to go o'er.

    Whitehead: Clearly, having fallen victim to the fallacy of misplaced concreteness.

    Freud: It was a rooster and his mother was waiting on the other side.

    Hamlet: That is not the question.

    Donne: It crosseth for thee.

    Pope: It was mimicking my Lord Hervey.

    Constable: To get a better view.

    Yeats: She was following the Faeries that sang to her to come away with them from the dull, bucolic comfort of the farmyard to the waters and the wild.

    Shelley: 'Tis a metaphor for the pursuits of man: though 'twas deemed an extraordinary occurrence at the time, still it brought little to bear on the great scheme of time and history, and was ultimately fruitless and forgotten.

    Tolkien: Chickens are respectable folk, and well thought of. They never go on any adventures or do anything unexpected. One fine spring day, as the chicken wandered contentedly around the farmyard, clucking and pecking and enjoying herself immensely, there appeared a Wizard and thirteen Dwarves who were in need of a chicken to share in their adventure. Reluctantly she joined their party, and with them crossed the road into the great Unknown, muttering about how rude the Dwarves were to take her away on such short notice, without even giving her time to brush her feathers or fetch her hat.

    PETA: It was running away from a life of misery as a bettery hen.

    NSA: We shall check any communication it had beforehand in emails or otherwise, as surely it carried a bomb - ALL chickens carry bombs!

    VSauce: We will never know because the chicken in question is fictional, therefore never factually did cross a road thus we cant facually determine why.

    The Howard Cosell one was hilarious! That is so him!

    Adrian Monk: Here’s what happened. (flashback scene)

    Gregory House: There was a bottle of Vicodin on the other side.

    Socrates: I do not know the answer. Why do you ask the question?

    Dolly Partonfowl: I did not intend to do so. It was a natural result of me turning and facing the road.

    Dylan: I am just a song and dance man.

    Willie Nelson: On the road again, I just can’t wait to get out on the road again.

    Grace Slick: Go ask Alice the chicken when she’s ten feet tall.

    Environmentalist: The other side of the road had not yet been fowled.

    Taoist: When you know the answer, you will not ask the question.

    Neanderthal: Chickens are an evolutionary dead end.

    Rooster: (#### a doodle doo); they cross all the time when I am on the other side.

    Chicken: See above answer.

    Horace Greely: Fowlifest destiny and because there are north/south roads.

    Raiding Chicken: I had 11 of my friends with me and we had a plan.

    Solo Chicken: The road was not in an instance.

    Sapience: Our research shows that the percentage of chickens that actually cross the road is a single digit number.

    The chicken was obviously guided by the benevolent Musteids to reach the shore unharmed.

    Oh my, I posted this thread quite a while ago and then wasn't on the forums, so I missed all the replies here, but LOL to that one!!!

    Could also for Sapience be:

    'The chicken crossed the road too soon I tell ya! It should have waited for my clearance, which also would have come soon, not right now soon obviously, but as soon as lotroian possible! (which means in some distant soonish future >.>)'
