OK this isn't a book, but there's enuf of these they could be made into one:
WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?
Did the chicken cross the road?
Did he cross it with a toad?
Yes! The chicken crossed the road,
but why it crossed, I've not been told!
To die. In the rain.
In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.
It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
It was a historical inevitability.
This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.
The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.
I have just released eChicken 2000, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your
checkbook; and Internet Explorer is an inextricable part of eChicken.
Did the chicken really cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?
FOX MULDER ("The X Files")
You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens
have to cross before you believe it?
STAR TREK: FROM THE CREW OF THE ORIGINAL USS ENTERPRISE
CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK
To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.
(I made the rest of these up...once I get started on Star Trek I can't stop. Sorry about that!
Considering the heavy traffic flow at the time, it did seem a most illogical thing to do.
DR. "BONES" MCCOY
Dammit, Jim, how am I supposed to know? I'm not a chicken psychologist, I'm a doctor!
I don't know cap'n! I dinna think he had enough power!
I've lost all communications with the chicken...I'm sorry, Captain...
And of course...
I missed one?
