Yes, but how's Yogi these days?

When I was a little kid, "boo boo all gone" was a good thing.

Hat trick? Is this thing on?

Lunch time WD. I think other bloglets have a life.

WHEW. As Boo Boo was my nickname growing up I'm glad the article was about someone else.

So sad. It's rare that I get to play with the office critters among us.

Speak for yourself, fivver. I have no life, and I'm DARN PROUD OF IT!

not to point out the obvious, but Boo Bo doesnt have a life either.

*tosses an "o" up thar*

"Until then, Calhoun said he didn't know if the bird was male or female."

Ummm, I'm no expert, but couldn't they have just looked under its tailfeathers or something?

Dave, I wish you hadn't told me that. I brought bad sad memories of the horrible murder of Speckles the Chicken.

RIP Speckles.

"It brought back sad memories"

PROOFREAD YOU JERK!!!

Wait a minute…I’ve only spent a couple of years on a farm, but isn’t ANY chicken who lays eggs a hen—and therefore, female? Or have I missed a major evolutionary development among chickens.

Maybe the Romanian guy choked the chicken afterall.

Once again, I come back to the nice safe supermarket as the place to get your chickens. No dangly-less elderly romanians, no disabled chickens.

Jeff: Calm down, dude. We all make tpyos.

Oh how sad. LET'S EAT!!

Oh, the humani... no wait.

In honor of Boo-Boo, flags at all KFCs will be flown at half-staff.

Boo-Boo is survived by some dark meat, a cobbette of sweet golden corn, and half an order of biscuits.

Gravy-side services will be at 350 for 20 minutes, or until done.

*SNORK!!* at PirateBoy

Seems to me that Marian Morris, the retired nurse that saved Boo Boo's life and, therefore allowed it to reproduce has messed up evolution by bypassing the whole survival-of-the-fittest thing.

*tosses a comma up there*

To-do over Boo Boo. Boo hoo.

(PirateBoy: There oughta be a slaw.)

In their defence Scott - the article DID say Boo Boo laid three eggs, and they incubated one. The other two? Breakfast.

LisaBFF- That's what I always thought too.

What's going on here???

If Boo Boo had been a male, wouldn't it have been a rooster?

Maybe a roaster?

El and Nannie, I think we're right. Males are roosters and they don't lay eggs. Or at least they didn't on our farm.

Between Punkin Poo & Pirateboy I almost wet myself...LMAO!!

When Boo-Boo was on Leno, she had such grace, such style. She really was poultry in motion.

Why did the Chicken cross the road?
Individual perspectives on the matter

Woody Allen:
I mean, it was, it was ... a legal chicken ... It wasn't like it was a blood relative or anything. (And don't believe anything that Mia says about me.)

Aristotle:
To actualize its potential.

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

Roseanne:
Urrrrrp. What chicken?

Jack Benny:
I'm thinking. ... I'm thinking

Buddha:
If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken nature.

James Cagney:
It crossed twice. The dirty double-crosser.

Albert Camus:
It doesn't matter; the chicken's actions have no meaning except to him.

John Cleese:
This Chicken is no more. It has ceased to function. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. It's a stiff. If it wasn't nailed to the road it'd be pushing up daisies. It's snuffed it. It's metabolic processes are now history. It's bleeding demised. It's rung down the curtain, shuffled off the mortal coil and joined the bleeding Choir Invisible. This is an Ex-Chicken. Ergo, it did not cross the road.

Darwin:
Chickens, over great periods of time, have been naturally selected in such a way that they are now genetically predisposed to cross roads

James Dean:
To prove he wasn't chicken.

Emily Dickenson:
Because it could not stop for death.

Albert Einstein:
Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.

Ralph Waldo Emerson:
It didn't cross the road; it transcended it.

M.C.Escher:
That depends on which plane of reality the chicken was on at the time.

Freud:
The fact that you thought that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

Bill Gates:
To purchase Chicken 2.01a, which will both cross roads and calculate the energy it used. There are bugs, yes, but if you uninstall Traffic 2.0 and Farmer 1.2 it will run. If it freezes at WhiteLine 2.0, we have a patch ...

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

Ernest Hemingway:
To die. In the rain.

Terry Jones:
This isn't a chicken license! It's a dog license with the word "Dog" crossed out and "Chicken" written in in crayon.

Carl Jung:
The confluence of events in the cultural gestalt necessitated that individual chickens cross roads. This brought such occurrences into being.

Immanuel Kant:
The chicken, being an autonomous being, chose to cross the road of his own free will.

Martin Luther King, Jr.:
I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

Timothy Leary:
Because that's the only kind of trip the Establishment would let it take.

John Locke:
Because he was exercising his natural right to liberty.

Machiavelli:
The point is that the chicken crossed the road. Who cares why? The ends of crossing the road justify whatever motive there was.

Karl Marx:
It crossed twice. First time, it was a tragedy; second time, a farce.

Chico Marx:
It couldn't. It was a rubber chicken.

Groucho Marx:
Chicken? What's all this talk about chicken? Why, I had an uncle who thought he was a chicken. My aunt almost divorced him, but we needed the eggs.

Jackie Mason:
Whaddaya want, it should just stand there?

Fox Mulder:
It was a government conspiracy.

Jack Nicholson:
'Cause it ***** wanted to. That's the ****** reason.

Nietzsche:
Because if you gaze too long across the Road, the Road gazes also across you.

Richard M. Nixon: The chicken did not cross the road. I repeat, the chicken did not cross the road.

George Orwell:
Because the government had fooled him into thinking that he was crossing the road of his own free will, when he was really only serving their interests.

Plato:
For the greater good.

Colonel Sanders:
I missed one?

Jean-Paul Sartre:
In order to act in good faith and be true to itself, the chicken found it necessary to cross the road.

Jerry Seinfeld:
Why does anyone cross a road? I mean, why doesn't anyone ever think to ask, "What the heck was this chicken doing walking around all over the place anyway?"

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

O.J.Simpson:
It didn't. I was playing golf with it at the time.

B.F. Skinner:
Because the external influences, which had pervaded its sensorium from birth, had caused it to develop in such a fashion that it would tend to cross roads, even while believing these actions to be of its own freewill.

Joseph Stalin:
I don't care. Catch it. I need its eggs to make my omelet.

Oliver Stone:
The question is not "Why did the chicken cross the road?" but is rather "Who was crossing the road at the same time whom we overlooked in our haste to observe the chicken crossing?"

Thomas de Torquemada:
Give me ten minutes with the chicken and I'll find out.

-Scott - it's Arkansas. The entire STATE bypassed that rule.

"And the Golden Drumstick goes to....PirateBoy!"

PB, thanks- it's been a while since I've seen that list, but it cracks me up every time! 'Specially Hemingway's!

For those who wondered how they couldn't tell whether Booboo had um, 'nuggets' or not, check out the photos here. As you can tell from her headress, Booboo was an exotic chicken. She would shake her tailfeathers downtown for the boys, and got paid chicken feed for it, but at least it feathered the nest.

Annie-WBH: I tried to dance like that once, but I was too chicken to do so in public.

If anyone wants to take over the posting chicken jokes, I can only wish them the best of cluck!

PB, you're a good egg. Keep it up and just like Dave, maybe you'll win the Pullet-Surprise.

AWBH: As Tom Cruise mumbled in Top Gun you can be my wingman, anytime!

But thanks, you really are a good comedi-hen.

Cafe Press is selling a good-sized collection of I Love Boo-Boo items.

My favorite? The apron. Because nothing quite says how much you love a chicken unless you're cooking it. But if the grease gets too hot, please be careful. You don't want to start a forest fryer.

PB - that was clucking bad! You should be roasted for that one. :^)
Buk, buk, buk-snork!

PB, NTBASA, but it was Val Kilmer who delivered that line, and TC responded, "Bullsh!t, you can be mine!"

WWWAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY belated *snorks* (dare I say it?) maybe even LOLs at WD for the hat-trick... never seen it before ('course, only been on the site for 'week and-a-half)

Damn, now all the good chicken puns and yokes are gone. I'm going to make like an egg and beat it.

How 'bout you just make like a tree, and get outta here. (One of my all-time favorite lines. Name that movie! Anyone? Anyone?)
