My nine year old son just blew my mind by explaining to me the age old joke "Why did the chicken cross the road?"

I always assumed the answer made it a 'D'uh' kind of joke: "To get to the other side." Not really clever or inspiring -- just the oldest joke in the book.

BUT I WAS WRONG.

As my son explained, the chicken crossed the road to get to 'the other side.' The afterlife. My world has been rocked by his little epiphany -- the joke is actually a very cute play on words and I have a feeling I am not the only one who never got that joke.

Because I ran the chicken over and therefore he could finally "break on through to the other side"?

Soo the chicken chose to be in the after life. Buy crossing a busy highway ( hit by a car for folks who don't get it ) thus crossing over to the other side? Actually makes sense.

Demented.... but makes sense.

Ha! well "the other side" is a reference to the afterlife after having been squished by a car and a reference to the other side of the road.

The joke is actually a play on words and not just a glib opportunity to say the chicken wanted to get to the other side of the road.

Your son is very clever.

Then, after crossing over, he came back! He began haunting the chicken coop.
He became a poultry-geist.

It was a suicidal chicken. I guess we all missed the signs. You never want to see them until it's too late.
