I remember that chicken crossing the road! I wonder why it did, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm BronwynB:

hey irwin and everyone!
  3:04pm Dean:

To get to the flip side.
  3:04pm Laura L:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, / And sorry I could not travel both / And be one traveler, long I stood / And looked down one as far as I could....
  3:10pm Dean:

so much depends

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Alison Porchnik:

This sounds like Spanish Belle and Sebastian
  3:14pm berbo:

Some people see a chicken crossing the road and ask Why?
Others ask "Why not"?
  3:17pm Dean:

Pole + tree = poultry

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm rrg:

You're confusing me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm rrg:

Until the vocal starts, this sounds like excellent talkover music.
  3:20pm Keith from Oregon:

THAT should go on the next billboard!
  3:27pm Woo:

CDs are just about ready for a revival, once the kids discover them. Hold on to yours. They are worthless now but just wait.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Fun for today: Make a funny caption for the chicken photo.
  3:29pm Dean:

Certificates of Deposit are worthless?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm BronwynB:

hey, i just heard THE LICK! www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm BronwynB:

that's also my caption for the chicken photo. he's urgently marching across the road because he heard THE LICK and he wants to find it
  3:30pm Listener Robert:

Where I last lived in the Bronx, there was a chicken who lived on the corner and would cross the street daily (I'm told, only saw it do so once or twice) to eat food somebody across the street would put out.

Where I live now we have deer and bear crossing the roads. There was also a steer who escaped from a farm and eluded efforts at capture, referred to on a message board as Moodini.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm BronwynB:

shit, that's a hen isn't it? SHE heard THE LICK and wants to find the source
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm zopa:

Because of the wonderful things he does?
  3:33pm Dean:

I wonder who will swerve first.
  3:34pm wfmu listener phillip:

i eat so much chicken per day. the chicken community has a "hit" out on me:-) the hitmans name is "rooster" would you believe it
  3:37pm wfmu listener phillip:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm ChrisB.:

Hey Irwin! Any Sabu updates for us?
Avatar 3:41pm dale:

like this foxygen - is it new or old? so hard to tell these days.
  3:42pm Dean:

Speaking of vegans, this weekend wifey-poo and I will attend a show at a vegan chef's flat in Oakland. He'll prepare a dinner for a small crowd, and we'll enjoy a live performance by Satoko Fujii and her hubby.
Avatar 3:42pm βrian:

I'd say more the egg than the chicken, as far as ideal food goes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm rrg:

Vegans reject both.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm The Oscar:

Well, you have my attention.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Lizardner Dave:

Is this the breaking of the Avalanche Bob barrier on WFMU?
