    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    In an attempt to explore comedy types/sub-genres could you all add a punchline to the above infamous joke. I know there are many of them and it isn't hard to make them up if you're struggling to remember one.

    I have a few to start things off

    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    To get runover

    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    To get his own back


    Ok, Ok

    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    To get to the other side


    Due to a typing error (which you wont see now as it has been corrected, or you wont see the one that has been corrected. There may be others) I have just thought of another one.

    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    To get to the otherside.

    :)

    No answer to that question can be original, but what the heck....

    It wanted to fight with the duel carriageway.

    Okay, something slightly off-beat:


    Q. Why did Terry Goodkind cross the road?

    A. To do something (that perhaps ought to have been deemed to be) unprintable to the evil chicken.

    It was stuck to the Chicken's foot.

    Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?

    A: Purple!



    Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?

    A: Are you sure it was a chicken? Could have sworn it wasn't a chicken that crossed that road. No siree-bob! The chicken you saw was no more alive than your foot is a brick. Or your brick a foot. Or you foot a brick which brick your foot to brick-foot brick foot-bricks. Brick-foot brick-foot foot foot-brick brick foot-brick bricks, brickly! An eagle? You thought you saw an eagle?! As brick as my chicken-foot on a brick street. In fact, as much as your brick chicken-foot on Chickenbrick Street's brick street's brick foot is a chicken foot-brick on Chickenbrick Street's brick street's chicken foot! That eagle, or frog, or tortoise you saw crossing the street was no more a figment of your imagination than my brick-feet bricking bricks on chickens! Chickens? You asked about chickens? Well, how am I supposed to know? Was I there to witness said chickenbrick chicken chicken Chickenbrick Street? Was there even once a chicken chickening Chickenbrick Street? Or even Chickenbrick Street? That wasn't the question? What was the question?

    It was the quickest way out of Kentucky.

    WDTCTR?
    It knew that it was the most fashionable way to get to Paris Fashion Week.
    (I'll leave Moonbat to work out why.)

    Don't Ursa, it hurts when I try to figure it out. I'm bracing myself for a terrible pun! It's got something to do with the word Mode (I think) a New Mode of transport. Ow!


    WDTCCTR
    Because it had developed a reality psychosis after too many days playing frogger.

    WDTCCTR
    It saw a Pelican crossing

    WDTCCTR
    It saw a Zebra crossing

    WDTCCTR
    It thought that is what Jesus would do

    Sorry that last one was a bit below par.

    There's a particular phrase I could have used about the success (or not) of the last example, but I don't want to start a religious war in this thread.



    As for my pun: Simples, as meercats don't really say. Chicken = Chic (fashionable) + ken (know).

    My fave, actually, MB :eek:

    WDTCCTR?

    It was in a cross mood.

    To read the bus timetable.

    If you ask it yourself, it'll probably tell you, "A'sphalt like it."

    It had to cross the line, didn't it?

    Because the road looked like it was gonna cross her one day.

    If you mean "with a railway line", the answer's obvious: To get a level crossing.

    That was where the hens lay.

    It didn't do it deliberately, it was just brooding ...

    It was in a bucket being carried by a drunk who couldn't walk straight.

    To see where the buck-buck-bwa-awkkk stopped.

    It was egged on.

    To get to the others' hide. (it's a bird-watching thing)

    Nugget chewed otter's hide?

    It told me once, and I could tell you ... but I couldn't be bucked. (sorry :eek:)

    Some other corny reason?

    Because there was only a Tesco on this side of the road (and it wanted to go to the Coop).

    Was it feeling cooped up, then? Or was it cooperating? I was certain it was doing an impression of Tommy Cooper, actually: "Not this side. That side. Fwahhuahua."
