Four legged chickens
A man was driving along a country road when he noticed something keeping pace with him on the shoulder. He realized that it was a chicken – with four legs. He sped up a bit, and found that the bird easily paced him up to 65 mph.
The chicken then sprinted ahead and went to a farm alongside the road. The traveler pulled into the driveway and saw several of the quadrupedal chickens zooming around the house and barn. Presently a man stepped out of the barn and the driver exchanged greetings with him. Then he asked about the chickens.
“Yeah, we’ve been working on them with selective breeding for about 10 years. See, a lot of people want drumsticks, and we figured if we could get chickens with four legs, we’d have a good source of drumsticks. And this year, we succeeded!”
“So, how do they taste?”
“Dunno, we haven’t caught one yet.”
