An Old Riddle
Railroad Crossing, watch out for the cars.
Can you spell that without any "r's"?
Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?
- MOSES: And God came down from the Heavens, and He said unto the Chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road!" And the chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.
- AGENT MULDER: You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens have to cross the road before you believe it?
- RICHARD M. NIXON: The chicken did not cross the road. I repeat, the chicken did NOT cross the road. I do not know any chickens. I have never known any chickens.
- BILL CLINTON: We categorically deny the chicken did cross the road and any allegations to the contrary by the right-wing extremists should be postponed until I am out of office. Could you define 'chicken' please?

Did the chicken cross the road?
Did he cross it with a toad?
Yes! the chicken crossed the road,
but why it crossed, I've not been told.
- LOUIS FARRAKHAN: The road, you will see, represents the black man. The chicken crossed the black man in order to trample him and keep him down!
- GRANDPA: In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken had crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.
- MACHIAVELLI: The point is that the chicken crossed the road. Who cares why? The end of crossing the road justifies whatever motive there was.
- EINSTEIN: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road moved beneath the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.
