Why didn’t the chicken cross the tracks? One will never know.

    Here we see a graduate from the Prometheus School of Running Away from Shit.

        You might also say that the chicken went to the Rickon Stark Academy of Dodging Arrows.

    I think the chicken thinks (possibly correctly) it is too close in front of the train to just peel off to the side without getting hit.

    It’s odd that I would happily eat the chicken and so instinctively feel that I shouldn’t have any mercy for it but I still don’t want to see it get run over.

    Poor chicken. Can the train not at least slow down?

    Birds of the plump varieties don’t seem to be the smartest.
    Went for a drive through a game reserve (aka “went on safari”) with my family a while back, and we happened upon a guinea fowl in the middle of the road.
    The speed limit is low in reserves so we were driving along at 20 or 30km/h and this bird was running along in front of us for nearly a kilometer – flapping it’s wings frantically, trying its best to stay ahead.
    Probably one of the funniest things I’ve personally experienced.
    It never got it in its head to turn off the road.

    That trip had another exceptional experience with about 10 giraffes, they had arranged themselves in a semicircle just next to the road, with their backsides facing the road. As we drove past, marvelling at their formation, they all shat, in unison. As if waiting for our arrival.

      Sounds like an amazing safari!

        It truly was one of the most entertaining. Though I’ve never had a bad time in a game reserve 🙂
