Decided to walk on sunshine for this post, in lieu of the usual ‘doom and gloom’ ( šŸ˜¦ ). This was something I wrote a long time ago (ok about three years old). Enjoy.


I am sure you are all wondering why i am writing this ridiculous note with a ridiculous title.
“What a silly question!” some of you are already saying.
“To get to the other side” others are answering.

But are you right?
Is there more to that other side than what meets the eye?
Let me take you on a history roll; blast from the past if you like…

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
June 28, 1914

An odd flock of chickens were seen crossing the Latin Bridge. Minutes later, Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, were assassinated. This led to a chain of events that brought about World War I.

Munich, Germany
February 27, 1925

A couple of our feathery friends escaped a cellar where a meeting was being held. This meeting was where Hitler, refounded the Nazi party. He then went on to build up the German army and take over Poland. In September 1939, World War II began when Britain and France declared war on the Germans. We know how it spirals down to the concentration camps and what’s not.


Hiroshima/Nagasaki, Japan
August 5, 1945

The Japs began to notice chickens crossing the road in groups.
The next day, A-BOMBs by the United States. This was the only time when nuclear weapons were used in a war to date. (Let’s pray it stays so.)




Dallas, Texas, USA
November 22, 1963

The driver of the presidential car noticed a strange phenomenon of chickens crossing the road.
Few minutes later J.F Kennedy was assassinated.

Newyork City, USA
February 21, 1965

Several people noticed some chickens escaping the kitchen adjacent to a ballroom in Washington heights with a cry of victory.
Minutes later, Malcolm X was assassinated.

South East, Nigeria
May 30, 1966

A cock, his hen and their chicks made their way out of Eastern Nigeria under the first glares of sunrise. Later that day, Colonel Odumegwu Ojukwu, declared the Eastern region of Nigeria, independent, forming The Republic of Biafra. Peace accords fell through, and as usual, things went south and on July 6, 1967, the Nigerian Civil War began.

Memphis, Tennessee USA
April 4, 1968

A black, mad man noticed chickens flying out of a balcony and landing like gymnasts. With unruffled feathers, they crossed the road. He crossed himself and muttered The Lord’s Prayer in Latin.
Few minutes later Martin Luther King Jr. was shot in the neck on that balcony.

Munich, SW Germany
September 5, 1972

A hen, meant to be breakfast for the athletes escaped and immediately it crossed, a group of men invaded and held the Israeli Olympic team hostage. These were a Palestinian group called Black September. Unfortunately, all of the Israelis were killed. Five of the kidnappers were killed as well and three were arrested and later released following the hijacking of a Lufthansa airline by the aforementioned group. (sigh)

Ok, bringing the time line closer

Newyork City USA
September 11, 2001

Couple of fat geezers noticed running chickens crossing the road just opposite the WTC. ‘Probably escaping from the nearest McDonald’ they thought aloud laughing. You all know what happened next…

What is the moral of this story? I have no idea!
I know the chickens did not cross the road just to get to the other side. Neither did they cross the road because it was December 25, a day of genocide for their ilk.
No, its more than that…

There is more to the “Joke”…
There is a sinister plot going on.
Do these chickens have a sixth sense?
Are they the real reason behind these events?
We’d never know.
Whatever the case may be, if you see chickens crossing the road, do not stop to look at them…


(Lets be frank, humans are to be blamed for these issues. Why we choose the path of violence to bring peace is beyond me. Why we kill/main/destroy because a certain people do not fit our religions/social/racial group is beyond me. We can’t blame the Devil, or God. Humans are the reason humans suffer. These instances might look like Old history but the same thing is still happening around the world. *sigh* This wasn’t much of a ‘sunshine’ post right? A clear reflection of my true self I guess.)

P.S: Chicken is actually a wrong term to describe a live fowl. Chicken is what the feathery fiends are called when they are boiled, fried or whatever you do to yours. ‘Chickens’ is even more wrong but who cares.
