Submitted: Why did the chicken cross the road? is the worst joke ever written.
Is it some sort of obscure meta-commentary on poultry humor? Is it pure, naked cynicism; or a kind of tired, petulant world weariness (what the Germans call Weltschmerz)?
This, essentially, is the way the joke works: “Here’s a set-up with a touch of whimsy.”
"Oh, I like it. I can’t wait to hear the imaginative answer!"
"Go to hell. You were a fool for hoping."
Or am I reading too much into it and it’s just lazy, horrible joke writing? Please advise.
It’s about death. The “Other Side”. A chicken crossing over a road will be hit by a car and die. It is a suicidal chicken. It’s about John Edward scamming people over their belief in the afterlife. I forget where I was going with this. Oh yeah, chicken suicide.
Yet another bizarre, possibly creepy sentence made from two movie titles at the old Stonestown UA Theater that I never see anyone entering or leaving
