Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

Today on Skeptico there are a series of how various people would answer that question.

Here are a couple of my favs:

John Edward: Noted psychic and mind reader -a.k.a. always wrong

They’re showing me feathers. Wings. A beak. Do you know an eagle?

A hawk?

A turkey?

A sparrow?

A duck?

A bird of some kind?

Caller: I know a chicken

Edward: You know a chicken that crossed? I thought so because they’re showing me a plate of scrambled eggs.

Larry King: Wow! That’s amazing! How does he do it?

And of course you have to hear from the Kansas School Board on this burning scientific question:

Kansas Board of Education

An unknown supernatural entity made the chicken cross the road at an unknown time in an unknown way for an unknown reason. Intelligent crossing is a scientific term

Hugh Ross

According the 322 parameters and the probabilities for each that I have made up, there is a less than 1 chance in 10282 that a chicken could cross a road without a divine miracle
