C is for CHICKEN

For the letter C, let’s focus on....


You have to wonder about evolution (I’d go with creation but Adam was apparently a vegetarian and went for the apple instead). What predetermines that one evolutionary path would yield us our meal time? Take the chicken, for example. What if you went back to when everything was an amoeba and told one of them they’d end up as a delicious picnic entrée or breakfast item? They’d laugh in your face if they weren’t just a simple single cell organism, of course.

The chicken has to be right up at the top of the most used for jokes and sayings.

Why did the chicken cross the road?
Chicken…the only thing you eat before its born and after its dead
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
Are you calling me chicken?
Yeah, but it tastes like chicken…
Chicken…the reason pork has to add an extra “other” to their slogan

Ever wonder about chicken like I wonder about chicken? I mean, take the choices you have at dinner time: Do you want dark meat or white meat?

First of all, neither of these is even correct.

White meat? Doesn’t look very white to me. Perhaps if you slathered mayonnaise over it.

Dark meat? Dark isn’t even a color. The definition of dark is: Lacking very little light; in the shadows. Huh? You mean if I have enough dark meat I could slip by unseen? Perhaps that is standard spy knowledge I haven’t been privy to.

In fact this overuse is so bad we even have diseases like chicken pox named after them.

Now most of us associate chicken with Kentucky Fried Chicken. But something isn’t right with KFC. I’ve had my gnomes checking them out for some time now. I suspect that not all of their chicken is actually fried in Kentucky! I know…shocking.

Oh…and they’ve been slowly cracking the secret ingredients too…

THANK GOD we don't have KFC over here... you just keep your stool samples and whatnext to yourselves!!

Mrsupole said...

Slip sliding away, that is what is going on, it's taking ahold and just slip sliding away. Hehe...

Mrsupole said...

Okay VE, how did you get a copy of my turkey picture that I posted on my website before you posted your chicken website. There you go stalking me again, and I thought we were oh so through with that. But at least I put a turkey recipe with my picture, while you just put ingredients. Psssst....don't tell anyone, but my pic could have a chicken head on it, but it is as big as a turkey.

Oh and no KFC for me either. Well except for maybe once or twice a year, I am not sure what happened and why that is it for me.

God bless.

Okay at first I was so disappointed that C was NOT for cookie! But then I went on to laugh and laugh some more, so I forgive you!


And that secret recipe is hilarious! Nacho cheese powder? Ground Kryptonite? But the dehydrated stool sample that one really takes the cake, erm, I mean CHICKEN!

hee hee hee

Matty said...

I love their original recipe chicken with mashed potatoes and a roll. MMMMMM

Healthy? Nah. Delicious? YESSSS

Chick-Fil-A makes an awesome chicken sandwich. The best.

Gladys said...

So the Dehydrated Stool sample is what gives it that extra zest and not the kryptonite.

Ed said...

monica - THAT'S why you're all so happy over there. Happy Thanksgiving!

mrsupole - What? Beat again? You are slipping. Happy Thanksgiving

quirkyloon - I knew you'd like my zany ingredients. Happy Thanksgiving!

matty - All you need is a Coke Classic with that original recipe meal! Happy Thanksgiving!

gladys - Guess that depends if you're Superman or not... Happy Thanksgiving!

RLM Cooper said...

I haven't had a Chick-Fil-A sandwich since I moved away from the South. I really do miss them. Best chicken sandwich in the world. ;o)

Janna said...

Back when Superman and I were dating, I made him a very nice chicken dinner with my secret ingredient of ground Kryptonite powder.
OMG. You've never heard such whining.

Elizabeth said...

When I was in highschool we would drive up to Chicago and get White Castle's chicken sandwichs. We'd get like 20 of them, they were really small (but really good).

Deb said...

Carefully created crazy, cheerful chicken composition causes colorful capon comments!

ReformingGeek said...

Oh, VE, I was hoping you would do the letter "T" today. Yes, I know that "C" is the next letter after "B".

Oh well.

I will stay away from KFC as I've done since......I can't even remember the last time I ate there.

What do you mean it isn't fried in Kentucky? Sheesh!

I loved the photos but the poor child with chicken pox tug at my wittle heart string. Yes, I only have one. ;-)

Ed said...

angelmay - Chick-Fil-A? Imagine what I could do with a post on Chick-Fil-A...Happy Thanksgiving!

janna - Sort of like me when somebody makes Asparagas! Happy Thanksgiving!

elizabeth - Am I the only person in the world that hasn't been to one? Happy Thanksgiving!

deb - Creative comment! Congrats...Happy Thanksgiving!

reforminggeek - I know...Texans don't eat things from Kentucky...Happy Thanksgiving!

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Love the pics. Love chicken. Could live without dehydrated stool in it though.

Brian Miller said...

i think someone put kryptonite in the turkey yesterday..i just want to sleep...

Ed said...

perpetual chocoholic - Why do you think they've been keeping it secret all these years...

brian - That's that triptophene. Actually, that's a myth...I hear there isn't enough of it to actually make you sleepy. Probably just the body's need to digest all that food! Meanwhile, we hiked all day and had a nice meal out afterwards. No dishes that way. Perfect!

Baino said...

They changed their name to KFC because the 'fried' bit wasn't appealing to the health nuts. I want to know why everything 'tastes' like chicken when chicken doesn't taste of much at all! Your roast is boobilicious

Ed said...

baino - Is that why they did it? I thougbt it was just the acronym trend thing...

Megan said...

I love fried chicken. (Whew, almost caught up.)

Unfinished Rambler said...

I'm with that I was initially disappointed that C was NOT for Cookie...and with ReformingGeek that T wasn't the next letter (chicken on Thanksgiving, so wrong ;). However, you won me over especially with the "dehydrated stool sample."

Ed said...

megan - I suppose there was chicken in KFC at one time...

unfinished rambler - Leave it to me to ignore all holidays when posting. Check most other blogs...they'll have some Thanksgiving related post...

Ronda Laveen said...

Can I have an extra side of the dried stool sample, please?

Jaime said...

no more KFC for me... interesting choice writing about chicken on thanksgiving.

Uncivil said...

I'm workin my way backwards from Elvis and I go from doughnuts to chicken? Have you got food on the brain?
I'm sure Elvis ate plenty of doughnuts and chicken!

Ed said...

ronda - That's one thing there's plenty of!

jaime - It was just a coinky-dink, I pre-wrote the first few posts as I knew I'd be on vacation...

uncivil - Food on the brain? Sounds painful...I don't have a lot of extra room in my skull...
