Day 23: muddy

Chickens, as a rule, liketh water not. But I have seen pictures of somebody’s soaking wet flock having a fine old time in the rain.

Chickens. Don’t try to understand ’em…

Don’t mud hens look more like ducks?
“Why a duck?” asked the old coot.

News You Can Use:

CDC warns against dressing your chickens up for Halloweeen.

“The CDC is asking pet owners to refrain from dressing up their chickens this year due to a particular strain of salmonella.

At least 92 people in 29 states have been infected with a strain of multidrug-resistant salmonella after coming into contact with raw chicken products. No deaths have been reported, but 21 of the sick patients have been hospitalized.

The CDC warned that people could be infected by handling live chickens. When dressing a chicken, whether in a Halloween costume or a sweater, it is easier for a person to come into contact with harmful bacteria that live on poultry, including salmonella.

The agency also warns, “Don’t kiss your birds or snuggle them and then touch your face or mouth.”

And here I thought the toughest part of going Trick-or-Treating with poultry was getting those Snickers bars in their little bitty goodie bags.

And I love the euphemism “raw chicken products”. That means poop, I’m pretty sure.

I’m guessing that’s why my grandmother was always describing someone as “Madder than an old, wet hen.”

I’m really enjoying your chicken drawings, Sweas.

For goodness sake people! Don’t gnaw on them until they’ve been properly cooked no matter how they’re dressed
or you become zombie chicken person!

– this, after all, IS the same CDC that produced this stupidity https://www.cdc.gov/phpr/zombie/index.htm
during the reign of the previous monarch.

(Zombie cheeekin get you!)

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.
