If the yellow chicken (OK--poulet jaune) were crossing the road in the near-vacuum of space, would she hear the sound of the tree falling? If so, would she hear the sound soon enough to get her eggs to safety---thereby forestalling the extinction of the species? Do chicken eyes have enough similarity to those of humans so that she knows she is yellow? If not, what color does she think she is?

Thought Problem: There are more chickens in the world than there are people.

if the tree fell on the chicken and the bird never heard, what happens to the pancakes on the doghouse once your wings fall off as you drive your motorboat down the street?

Why Schrodinger's cat? Why not Schrodinger's chicken? Then whether it gets to the other side depends on whether it's being observed.

So...to sum it all up. If a cat, with a piece of buttered toast glued on its back, is up a tree, and that tree falls on a chicken crossing the road - will anybody hear it?

The cat will stop the tree from falling on the chicken, then swoop down and eat it, then a car hits the cat, and noone will hear it, because the music is on too loud.

I think <insert deity here> first created chicken soup, then reversed time a bit so the chickens could come to life and jump out of the soup onto land, where they could then lay eggs, and cross roads.

EDIT: Or <insert deity here> first created egg drop soup, then the eggs either hatched in the soup or rolled out of the soup and hatched on land, and ...

Why is it always the rooster that's created first? Can't any of the religions show even a bit of innovation with their mythologies? Why not create a neuter chicken first and then take ribs for both male and female from it? You wanna know why not? Because the ribs would go for lunch and there'd never be any chickens; that's why not!

...and get hit by falling trees that made no noise, because Schrodinger never noticed it falling as he was too busy stuffing cats in boxes.
