Why did the chicken cross the road? To cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to a car before walking away from their head-on collision unhurt.
Huang Lingyong was driving down a road in China's rural Jiangxi [pr: jang-SHEE] province at nearly 70 miles per hour when he slammed into a chicken in the middle of the street. Huang thought he'd made nuggets out of the bird, but found that the chicken had actually smashed beak-first into his bumper, where it remained until he pulled over.
The driver said, "I thought it must be dead but then I heard a cluck-clucking and bent down to look closer. It was a little shaken up and its feathers all ruffled, but otherwise OK. It seemed to be a very good advertisement for the durability of chickens and a very bad one for the quality of [my] car." (Daily Mirror)
