off topic: political poultry comedy

Due to the awesome force of the internet by now everyone has seen a portion of this list at one time or another, I’m sure. But as its longevity cannot be disputed, neither can the fact that it’s just dang funny.

My mom spammed me with the current incarnation this morning. My very favorites are listed below for your enjoyment:

Why did the chicken cross the road?

BARACK OBAMA:
The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a CHANGE!
The chicken wanted CHANGE!

JOHN MC CAIN:
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.

HILLARY CLINTON:
When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure — right from Day One! — that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn’t about me…….

GEORGE W. BUSH:
We don’t really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY:
Where’s my gun?

COLIN POWELL:
Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road…

BILL CLINTON:
I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?

AL GORE:
I invented the chicken!

ANDERSON COOPER – CNN:
We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

PAT BUCHANAN:
To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

COLONEL SANDERS:
Did I miss one?

DR SEUSS:
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.

ARISTOTLE:
It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

And my personal all time, MOST VERY favorite:

ERNEST HEMINGWAY:
To die in the rain. Alone.

OBTW – And how cute is Anderson Cooper? He’s one of the reasons I’m now addicted to CNN.
