Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

Recommended Posts

This is a bit of an old joke but if you missed it here it is. I thought it was funny.

Famous interpretations of "Why did the Chicken cross the road?"

I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What do you mean by chicken? Could you define chicken, please...

The road, you will see, represents the black man.
The chicken crossed the "black man" in order to trample him down!

Colonel Sanders:
I missed one?

L.A Poliece Department:
Give us five minutes with the chicken, and we'll find out.

Jerry Falwell:
Because the chicken was gay! isn't it obvious? Can't you people see the plain truth in front of your face? The chicken was going to the other side. thats what "they" call it: the "other side". Yes, my friends the chicken is gay. And if you eat that chicken, you will become gay too!

Ronald Regan:
What Chicken?

This was an unprovoked act of rebellion, and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it!

Heh, never quite got these chicken crossing the road jokes. I wouldn't even classify them as proper jokes, but more like teasing/nonsense sentences or something to that effect.

The closest thing there is in Greek language are some trick "riddles" like: "What's green, has one foot, and lives in a pot?" or "What's yellow, lives 5m underground and eats rocks?"

No. The answers are "The rock-dwelling blackbird" and "The yellow rock-eater" respectively .

Try answering this one:

What's red, lives 10m underground and eats rocks?

A few more answers...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Pyrrho the Skeptic: What road?

Jonathan 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.

No. The father of the yellow rock-eater.

IMHO, these are as much of a "joke" as the "chicken jokes" are. Then again cultural differences may perfectly explain everything.
