Why did the chicken cross the road?

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche's viewpoint

"Vell, dat iss a difficult question" Nietzsche answered in his strong German accent, "Who knowss what drifes a huhn?". After pondering the question a bit, Friedrich went on to explain that possibly the chicken saw the road as a means to elevate itself above others in chickendom, the will to power. Chickens are equalitarian by nature but sometimes one of them may feel the need to stand out, be better than the rest. As there is no God to ensure fairness in the game of life, the road could represent a sort of insurance against chickeness, crossing it would make it an overchicken.

So why did the chicken cross the road? "Because zit iss stupid."

  1. perhaps the chicken was a rooster and needed to crow above the others.
