Who are you people? And what are you doing in my house?


Subhead: tiny fluffy chicken judges you.

Not bad for a square cut from the center of a frame of wide angle video. All the blurring is P’shop — things like grass, straw and wire mesh really eat up the file size of jpgs, so I blur it out. To be honest, I’ve grown fond of the weird tilt-shift effect.

My Chickenology course is going well. I’ve just aced the Week 2 exam. I won’t say it’s heavy, but it’s not lol chikkens R cute, either. They go into the wavelengths of light chickens can see (they can see UV!) and the frequencies they can hear. The number of chicken taste buds (not very many) and the percentage of time they spend foraging, grooming and socializing.

I’ve learned new smartass terms like contrafreeloading, altricial, precocial and lol chikkens R cute.

Heavy rain tonight. I like to imagine the new girls snuggled up tight in their cozy new chicken house. Telling each other ghost stories.

Ooh! Stormy night, ghost stories, and pillow fights!

Hmm, I wonder what chickens stuff their pillows with.

Chicken ghost stories: the Man with the White Goatee.

The chicken said to the Man, “Hmm. I thought my Mable was going to stay just one night.”

The Man replied, “Oh, that’s all she stayed. She’s gone now.”

“Do you know where she’s at?”

“I really couldn’t say for sure.”

“Well, I hope she was good while she stayed with you.”

“Oh, she was good. Very, very good.” Mable puzzled as the Man brought his hand to his mouth…and then licked his fingers.

What do you plan on doing with your degree in Chickenology? Will we have to begin addressing you as Dr. Stoaty, ChD?

No doubt the favorite is the one about the Headless Chicken of Chik-Fil-A Manor . . .

Well, there is this horrifying story that’s only clucked about in very hushed tones.

No! No!

They all lived happily ever after with the kind lady who gave them good food, fresh water, treats, and made sexy chicken talk to them. The end. 🙂

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
