Thinking Thursday: Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

A little light relief in your thinking this week. I’m afraid I don’t know where I got this, so apologies to the inventor.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Captain Kirk: To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

Martin Luther King Jr: I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross the roads without having their motives called into question.

Grandpa: In my day, we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

Aristotle: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

Karl Marx: It was an historical inevitability.

Voltaire: I may not agree with what the chicken did, but I will defend to the death its right to do it.

Sigmund Freud: The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

Albert Einstein: Did the chicken cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?

John Lennon: Imagine all the chickens crossing roads in peace.

Dr Seuss: 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!

Ernest Hemmingway: To die. In the rain. Alone.

Colonel Sanders: I missed one?

About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
