More Football Talk: Why did the Chicken Cross the Road?

  To steal a job from a decent, hard-working American.

  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.

 Carl Jung:
  The confluence of events in the cultural gestalt necessitated that
  individual chickens cross roads.  This brought such occurrences
  into being.

 John Locke:
  Because he was exercising his natural right to liberty.

 Albert Camus:
  It doesn't matter; the chicken's actions have no meaning except to
  him.

 The Bible:
  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.

  It was a government conspiracy.

 Freud:
  The fact that you thought that the chicken crossed the road reveals
  your underlying sexual insecurity.

  Chickens, over great periods of time, have been naturally selected
  in such a way that they are now genetically predisposed to cross
  roads

 Darwin #2:
  It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees.

 Richard M. Nixon:
  The chicken did not cross the road.
  I repeat, the chicken did not cross the road.

 Oliver Stone:
  The question is not "Why did the chicken cross the road?" but is
  rather "Who was crossing the road at the same time whom we
  overlooked in our haste to observe the chicken crossing?"

 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?"

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

 Immanuel Kant:
  The chicken, being an autonomous being, chose to cross the road of
  his own free will.

 Grandpa:
  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.

 Dirk Gently (Holistic Detective):
  I'm not exactly sure why, but right now I've got a horse in my
  bathroom.

  I have just released the new Chicken 2000, which will both cross
  roads AND balance your checkbook, though when it divides 3 by 2 it
  gets 1.4999999999.

 M.C.Escher:
  That depends on which plane of reality the chicken was on at the
  time.

  Because the government had fooled him into thinking that he was
  crossing the road of his own free will, when he was really only
  serving their interests.

 Colonel Sanders:
  I missed one?

 Plato:
  For the greater good.

 Aristotle:
  To actualize its potential.

 Karl Marx:
  It was a historical inevitability.

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

 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 freewill.

 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.

  What road?

 The Sphinx:
  You tell me.

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

  Because it could not stop for death.

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

 Ernest Hemingway:
  To die. In the rain.

 Saddam Hussein:
  This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified
  in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.

  It is the Mother of all Chickens.
