Why are chickens so funny?

Chicken jokes and chicken ideas, and things like, “which came first, the chicken or the egg?”, make me laugh. I don’t know why, and this article from the Metro had me crying with laughter. It was the conclusion that did it for me. That is one thing I love about the British, their sense of humour.

In honour of this great moment (or not, as we all know that next year the news will say the reverse) here is my favourite chicken joke. The Hemingway version.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To die. Alone. In the rain.
