Day 30: jolt

How to approach an illustration is called a ‘picture problem.’ I never thought I’d be trying to solve the picture problem of a chicken struck by lightning.

The good part is, you probably don’t have another drawing of a chicken struck by lightning to compare it to.

I like it, looks like something you’d see in a comic like Weird Tales or Creepy comics 🙂

(I half-way expected a chicken sitting in the electric chair.)

Were these in color? I think the lightening is spectacular! I hope the chicken now has a super-power.

Well of course she does, Debbie HH. She is now the arch nemesis of Chik-fil-A!

Been dazed and confused for so long I can’t talk.
Just wanted a sweet worm, never thought I’d get shocked.
Lots of chicks talkin’, but few of them know
Touch that ‘ol electric fence and Zap! There ya go!

It goes down to your toes and then you’re just fried.
Run ’round like you’re headless; Lord you’ll think you can really fly.
It sure ruffles your feathers, till you don’t know where you’ve been.
Oh look there’s a yummy worm! Here I come again!

And thus spake the Lord unto St. Henrietta saying
“Sunny side down, and don’t turn them over!”

Oh, the END is not near, it is HERE!!!!!!!

Mark, I’d rather see her opening a can of whupass on Colonel Sanders and Popeye.

Not to mention if she DID go after Chik-Fil-A their super cow stooges would show up to do battle with her!

Hmmmm, maybe you’re right after all,

“There is one thing you must learn
that when there’s no one else to turn to
call for Super Chicken,
Caaaaallllll for Super Chicken!

I forget now – is knowing the Super Chicken
theme song the product of my poorly spent youth?
or the product of spending my parenthood
aiding and abetting my sons in poorly spending
their own youth?

Internet say – 1967 premier – ah, MY misspent youth.

Lightning Chicken could be Condorman’s sidekick! (An eminently cheesy movie I saw in my youth. It can be rented on Amazon, sayeth IMDB)

Your illustrative idea is FAR better than another one that occurred to me – a chicken guzzling from a can of Jolt Cola. (Chickens in college have “finals weeks” too, don’t they?)

It is my understanding that when struck by lightning, the skeleton is visible from the outside as glowing outlines.

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.
