To get to the other side.

-----

So have I been completely dense and is the joke just an anti-joke or is it a joke saying the chicken will get killed by a car and cross over to "the other side"?

I legit don't know. I've missed some REALLY obvious stuff in my day.


I feel it's more like a half a joke, like knock knock jokes, where you fill in the blank to prove your wit as opposed to parroting someone else's humor. I was told a chicken joke recently that was actually quite good, considering it comes from a five year old.

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the idiots house.

...

Knock knock.

Who's there?

The chicken!

Gotta love kids, amirite?


So it's basically the adlibs of telling jokes, you get your basic foundation and then it's up to you to create a fresh twist on the tired old meme. Would the chicken joke be the original meme? Who knows?

It's like the joke;

Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?































It died.

I think it's just a statement of logic and simplicity. Kind of like a duh moment or a DOH if your Homer Simpson.
Why do people climb mountains? To get to the top.
Why do I torture myself with questions I don't know the answers to?

See I don't know the answer to that.
But at least this is a fun thread.
Good morning.

When i was a kid the snarky answer was "because Colonel Sanders was on his side." So I see what you mean.
Humor 101.
Excellent idea.

Which reminds me of another joke.
Seems this free range chicken farmer was having a problem with his chickens getting run over because people drove too fast past his farm to stop in time or give the chickens time to run away.
So one day he painted a sign. The sign said Slow Down Chickens Crossing. But the cars still kept driving too fast and he kept losing chickens.
Then one day his wife whispered in his ear. I know what will slow them down.
The very next day the farmer painted a new sign. It worked.
The sign said...Nudist colony next left.

Two replies here.....why did the pervert cross the road? His junk was stuck in a chicken.

Two blondes standing on opposite sides of a river. The 1st blonde say's " How do I get to the other side" 2nd blonde answers her " You're already on the other side"

Why didn't the rooster cross the road...
Because he was chicken.
I'm here all week. Don't forget to tip your waitress.
