Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?


I’m not really a fan of the ‘Why did the chicken cross the road?’ joke as to be quite frank, I don’t find them funny. That said, the one I was told recently involved the singer-songwriter Adele which brought a cheery smile to my face. So in esteem to these mostly daft and daffy buffoonery, here’s some pratfall comedy.

Excluding the fucking chicken.

  1. Why did Adele cross the road? To sing “Hello” from the other side.
  2. Why did the woman cross the road? Who cares. How did she get out of the kitchen is the important question!
  3. Why did the one armed bloke cross the road? To visit the second hand shop.
  4. Why did the duck cross the road? Because it thought it was a chicken.
  5. Why did the fox cross the road? It had heard about the chicken!
  6. Why did the chewing gum cross the road? Because it got stuck to the chicken’s foot.
  7. Why did the lettuce cross the road? Because it was green.
  8. Why did the rubber chicken cross the road? Just needed to stretch its legs.
  9. Why did Anakin Skywalker cross the road? To get to the dark side.

Bored yet? Let’s try some negatives to spice the appetite a little?

  1. Why didn’t the ghost cross the road? It had no body to go with.
  2. Why didn’t the bike cross the road? It was two-tired.
  3. Why didn’t the schizophrenic cross the road? He couldn’t make up his minds.
  4. Why didn’t the roast chicken cross the road? It didn’t have the guts anymore.

And when you thought it was all over, this one comes out, stage right!

  1. Two donkeys are standing at a roadside, one asks the other “So, shall we cross?” The other shakes his head “Hell no! Look at what happened to the zebra.”
