So here was my answer to the eternal question of chicken and the road crossing.
Why! Why is the only question you ask about this hero. There is so much more this story. I think perhaps we should be asking who this chicken is. For she is the one who found a way to free herself from the bondage of the cage, the horror of daily egg production, and the answer to all this was to simply cross that road.
Of course, getting run over by the car in the middle of the road rather put a tragic twist to the tale.
