Why did the chicken cross the road?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Found this in "Readers Digest" a couple was driving down a road and kept seeing possums dead on the road where they had been hit one of them told the other that he now knew the reason the chicken had crossed the road. The reason being to show the possums that it was possible.

When I lived in NC (roadkill possum capital of the world!), the joke went: Why did the chicken cross the road? To prove to the possums that it could be done!

In Texas, the punchline is "to show the armadillos that it could be done"

Chicken answer: For some fowl reason.

Hedgehog: It didn't. Not quite.

As I remember, in the summertime "hedgehog pizzas" used to be a common sight on English country roads. Poor little buggers thought that if they rolled up in a ball, they were invincible.
