Chicken Can’t Remember Why He Crossed the Road
Sammy the chicken crossed the road earlier this morning but once he reached the other side, onlookers said he appeared confused and out of sorts. He spent some time pecking the ground nonchalantly, to cover, but it was clear that he had forgotten why he crossed the street in the first place.
"I feel really bad for him," said Cheryl Hawkins. "Really, I do. Everyone is always asking him that question, and now even he doesn’t know the answer."
Sammy has been having memory problems recently, according to friends. Yesterday he crowed at 4 o’clock in the afternoon, instead of dawn, for example.
"It threw thew whole farm out of whack," said one friend. "We all overslept and then Sam cockle-doodle-doos at nearly sundown. Threw us for a loop."

Local Bird Not Happy with Expensive Salon Cut
When the upscale Salon 23 started advertising services for birds, Mango was ecstatic. But after visiting the salon and dropping $120 on a premium cut this weekend, that excitement has waned.
"They told him he would look like an Macaw," explained close friend Sarah Bastille, "but instead he wound up looking more like a Chickadee."
It’s not that the cut was necessarily bad, said Bastille, just not what was advertised. And certainly not worth that much cash.
Mango has already left a 1-star review on Yelp and unliked the salon’s Facebook page.
BREAKING: One-Day-Old Chick Learns to Walk
Janice, a one-day-old baby chick, has just started to figure out how to walk, according to sources on the scene.
"It’s really incredible," said Skip Tompkins. "I’ve seen this thousands of times over the years, but I’m always amazed. One minute they’re just sort of flopping around, the next they’re up on their wobbly little legs and figuring out how to put one in front of the other."
Janice is said to be making startling progress and should be strutting around the barnyard by sunset.

Duck Sidelined for Foul Play
By Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to sources, Ted the duck has been ejected from yet another game of pickup basketball for playing too dirty. Ever the competitor, Ted has proven notorious on the basketball court for his overly aggressive style.
"We warned him beforehand to tone it down," says teammate Anthony Marsh. "But around the second quarter, he started with the usual stuff. Throwing elbows, trash talking. Fouling on purpose. Someone had to take him out."
The duck was swiftly directed to the sidelines, where he continued shouting at players.
"They had to hold him back," says Marsh. "I’m all for being competitive, but Ted always takes it way too far. If he wants to play again, he’s going to have to learn to cool it."
