Just How Much Fuel Does a Chicken Need to Cross the Road?

Cantor checked his watch again. The horizon refused to change, remained empty of known figures. No red chassis sparkling in the desert sun, no driver’s face. Cantor needed a ride.

The woman he waited on did come, finally. The vehicle, however, brought questions to his mind. Of the undesirable kind.

Fun facts about chickens:
1. Absolutely none.

Other facts about chickens:
1. They have actual ear lobes. I didn't know that.
2. The area of the back adjacent to their tail feathers is called the saddle. I didn't know that either.
3. Some argue that, when you die, you are reunited with all the chickens you have ever loved.

4. All chickens possess a beak with which they pick up food off the ground and proceed to swallow it. This process is commonly known as eating. Chickens do not chew because they are impolite.
5. The domestic chicken is a subspecies of the red junglefowl.
6. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night because chickens project worry and disquiet by telepathy. They do not control their telepathic projection very well; their thoughts just wander around until they enter the mind of someone sensitive enough to understand.

7. A "chicken scheme" sounds weaselly and illegal, but I assure you, you have nothing to fear. Unless you hate coding.
8. Chickens do not enjoy the weekend the way normal people do.
9. Buckethead will one day save all the chickens of this Earth (and possibly outer space) from the tyranny of human appetites.

And also have a thing for cows.
