Just about all kids have either asked or been asked “Why did the chicken cross the road?” and the answers can vary from the straightforward “To get to the other side” to the sublime or ridiculous. For example:
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.
Douglas Adams: Forty two
On Sunday the question we were asking was “Why did the Madchicken72 cross the beck?”. No, the answer is not “To get to the other side” this time. The answer is “To find a sneakily hidden geocache”.
