The following (abbreviated) e-mail crossed our computer screen the other day. It lists imaginary answers to how various historical figures and celebrities might answer the proverbial question, "Why did the chicken cross the road?"
For the greater good.
It was a historical inevitability.
Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.
To live deliberately ... and suck all the marrow out of life.
Henry David Thoreau
The news of its crossing has been greatly exaggerated.
To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.
Capt. James T. Kirk
