Want some suspense in your life?

Watch this (hat tip: Ace):

But the larger question is why? Why??

    Why? As in why cross the highway, easy, to show the possum that you really can!

  2. Occam's Beard Says:

    To get to the other side?

    CNN should have interviewed the duck family to settle the age-old dispute. Presumably their answer would apply to chickens also (should that be “Chicko-Americans?”).

  3. rafinlay Says:

    Why did the [poultry of choice] cross the road?

    Because it was too long to go around.

  4. anonymess Says:

    For sure, they weren’t chicken.

  5. Sam L. Says:

    Because they read about this primo new vegan place on the other side.

  6. blert Says:

    They spent too much time watching Bowfinger.

    Sort of reminds me of an incident several years ago. I was driving in the right-hand southbound lane of a four-lane divided highway. It was raining and the road was wet. All at once, two adult geese walked out right in front of me. I instinctively swerved to miss them, but lost control and spun out into the grassy median. (Good thing there was a median; otherwise I would have careened into oncoming traffic.)

    As luck would have it, a tow truck was passing by at that exact moment. He saw it happen and stopped to pull me out. As we stood there, we watched the geese continue through the median and cross the northbound lanes without breaking stride.

  8. Charles Says:

    well, at least they were just being ducks . . . I’ve seen people walk into traffic the same way while talking on their cell phones!

  9. Paul in Boston Says:

    Officer Michael is missing in action, he would have stopped traffic for them.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
