Good Chicken

A truck driver is barreling down the road at 80 miles per hour and he
looks over and sees a three legged chicken racing right along with
him. He can't believe what he's seeing, but he speeds up to 100 miles
per hour to see what would happen. Sure enough, the chicken catches
up with him.

"Wow," says the truck driver, and he floors it to 120 miles per hour.
This time the chicken not only catches up but leaves him in the dust
and goes on down the road. Stunned, the trucker pulls into a gas
station and tells the attendant what happened.

"Oh yeah," says the attendant, "that's farmer Brown and his
three-legged chickens. He's got a whole farm full of them. His farm
is right down the road if you want to see them."

The trucker has to see this. Sure enough, as he pulls into the farm,
he sees hundreds of three-legged chickens all over the place. He
approaches the farmer and asks what's going on. The farmer tells him
that it was a freak birth, but he realized what a wonderful sales
gimmick this would be.

"How many times have you wished you had that third chicken leg for the
kid left over or for granny?"

The trucker thought it over and said, "Yeah, that is a great idea, but
do they taste good?"

The farmer scratches his head and says, "Don't know, can't catch 'em."
