WTW - This Criminal is a Chicken

Just when you thought crime wasn’t high enough, even animals have to get in the act:

RIDGECREST, Calif. (AP) - Linc and Helena Moore may have finally learned the answer to that age-old question: Why did the chicken cross the road? Because the chicken doesn’t know jaywalking is illegal.

Kern County Sheriff’s Deputy J. Nicholson does know, however. The deputy issued a ticket March 26 because one of the couple’s chickens allegedly impeded traffic in Johannesburg, a rural mining community near Ridgecrest, some 220 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

The Moores were in Superior Court on Friday to plead not guilty. A trial was scheduled for May 16.

Nicholson has declined to discuss the matter, but sheriff’s Sgt. Francis Moore said chickens on the roadway have been a problem in the community of 50 residents. Officials didn’t believe it could be resolved by simply issuing the couple a warning.

"Sometimes you have to let people talk to the judge," Moore said.

The chicken’s owners say they believe they were cited because they were among several people who complained that sheriff’s deputies haven’t done enough to control off-road vehicle riders who create dust and noise in their neighborhood.

Sheriff’s officials say that isn’t so, adding they are doing what they can to keep off-roaders away from homes.

"The chicken thing has nothing to do with the motorcycle thing," Moore said.

I, however, discovered the truth regarding why the chicken really did cross the road…

Be sure to pay all of my white trash cuzin’s a visit at ye ole trailer park:

What would this offspring be? chickitt? Rabin?

OMG, now that I have cleaned up the sweet tea I was drinking when I busted out laughing maybe I can type something.

That is the silliest thing I have heard. Can anyone say "road kill"?

That was the effect I was going for - controversy (what would you call the offspring) or the destruction of keyboards by the effects of sweet tea. :-)

I have some road kill recipes if you are interested!!!
