Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?True enough, some might consider it a sure sign of having hung out with those durn Americans for too long. And I must admit that it does kind of make me wonder if I could possibly come up with the Canadian equivalent...
Barack Obama: The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a CHANGE! The chicken wanted CHANGE!
John McCain: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.
Hillary Clinton: When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure - right from Day One! - that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road.
George W. Bush: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.
John Kerry: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am not against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.
Al Gore: I invented the chicken!
Bill Clinton: I did NOT cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?
Dick Cheney: Where's my gun?
Nah, I think those Yanks have the market cornered on this one!
Update: My favourite by far ... George W. Bush "That chicken is either for us or against us!"
