Chickens have helped people in countless ways for thousands of years.   Stories like the "Little Red Hen" teach us the virtues and rewards of hard work.   In addition to the chicken being very cute, chickens have inspired people to adopt chicken idioms into our language to express some of our different feelings and experiences, with some of our favorite chicken sayings:

Nest egg; Don't count your chickens before they hatch; Don't put all your eggs in one basket; chicken feed; feather your nest; which came first – the chicken or the egg?; laid an egg; hen-pecked; flew the coop; walking on eggshells; like a chicken with it's head cut off; you're chicken; don't get your feathers ruffled; no spring chicken; rule the roost.

One of my favorite chicken quotes is "Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?"  The following suppositions of probable answers by well known people were listed on -  which prompted a few chuckles from me, and hopefully, will from you, also.

John McCain's Answer:  My friends that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

Bill Clinton's Answer:  I did not cross the road with THAT chicken.   What do you mean by chicken?   Could you define chicken, please?

Dick Cheney's Answer:  Where's my gun?

Richard Nixon's Answer:  The chicken did not cross the road.   I repeat, the chicken did not cross the road.

Oprah Winfrey's Answer:  Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad.   So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which are a part of life, I'm going to give the chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

Dr. Seuss' Answer:  Did the chicken cross the road?   Did he cross it with a toad?   Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed, I've not been told!

Grandpa's Answer:  In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road.  Someone told us that the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

Barbara Walters' Answers:  Isn't that interesting?   In a few moments we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart-warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting and went on to accomplish its life-long dream of crossing the road.

Pat Buchanan's Answer:  To steal a job from a decent, hard-working American.

John Lennon's Answer:  Imagine all the chickens crossing roads in peace.

Aristotle's Answer:  It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

Sigmund Freud's Answer:  The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

Colonel Sanders' Answer:   I missed one?

Kindergarten Teacher's Answer:  To get to the other side.
