     I'm not a very big fan of chickens, but if there is any chicken I admire it's the one from the Nun's Priest's Tale in the Canterbury Tales.  He outsmarted a fox! Do you know how hard that is to do?  Foxes are pretty foxy after all.  This chicken though, is the foxiest chicken I've ever read about.  He is one cool cat.  He's the cool bean.  Fonzier than the Fonz! Give it up for Chauntecleer! 
      This bird could challenge Ol' Blue Eyes for a Grammy with his amazing voice.  But don't ever listen to his favorite wife, Pertelote, for she is sure to almost get you killed.  Telling you to ignore all forewarning of a drastic event.
     Take care now, and remember, may the bridges you burn light the way.

P.S. I sincerely hope that you know who Ol' Blue Eyes.  If you don't, I'm not sure you're fit to live.


  1. haha! You're getting a lot outta Canterbury Tales...altho they've been a trial to wade thru!

  2. Gigglesnort. Another blog I read just had a fox attack on their chickens... two are fine, just feathers mussed, one is touch and go, but hangin in. The fox was persistent though. Got one chicken, dropped it when attacked by a donkey. Got the second, dropped it when attacked by a husky, grabbed the third bird, dropped it and finally took off when three more dogs flew out of the house after him. Gotta give the boy credit for stick-to- it-tiveness!
