Rooster’s Got Something to Crow About

Why does the chicken cross the road?  It may be a mystery why some chickens cross the road, but for a rooster who lives in Collierville, Tennessee, he crosses the road every morning to visit Gus’ Fried Chicken restaurant. Once he arrives, this rooster gives  those around his best morning cock-a-doodle-do.

According to “Commercial Appeal,” John Robinson, manager, reports that the Collierville Animal Services have tried to catch the rooster but so far no luck.  Robinson says they’re more worried about his safety than getting rid of him because of the busy street or other predators lurking in nearby woods which might like their chicken a little more on the rare side.

So why does this rooster cross the road?  I think he considers himself a feathered Paul Revere warning his comrades in the countryside to stay away from the place.  What else can he do?  It’s hard to hold a lantern or ride a horse when you only have two feet and no arms.

  1. Maybe the restaurant is paying him to lure his fellow chickens into their trap. In that case, he is probably a very rich rooster by now.
