Crossing the Road

I know that these kinds of accidents run in our family, but …

Uncle Leroy Little had just gotten home from the new brooder house. We were so proud of Uncle for landing the morning’s front line manager’s job.

“Where’s Lester,” he inquired immediately.

“Over at a friend’s…”

“Traffic’s getting heavy. When’s he due home?”

“Any time…”

“Why didn’t Miss Linda walk’em over?”

“Lester’s five months. He has to be allowed his wings soon.”

That’s when we heard the horrid screech.


Now you know the answer to the age-old riddle….

Why does the chicken cross the road? They don’t!
