Hello Everyone.
Autumn the Puppy here, still digging into that age old question "Why did the chicken cross the road?"
Last week, I started posting political responses, but wound up running out of column space long before I ran out of answers.
So without further adieu, let's fire up our time travel devices and examine other political comments on the subject throughout history.

So, why did the chicken cross the road?

William Jefferson Clinton, 42nd President of the United States:
I did not cross the road with that chicken. Besides, what is your definition of chicken?

Hillary Clinton:
When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road.

Al Gore, Vice President to Clinton:
I invented the chicken, so why shouldn't it cross roads?

Gerald Ford, 38th President of the United States:
Was that what the chicken was doing? Crossing the road? What I want to know is why couldn't I avoid tripping over the dang thing?

Martin Luther King, Junior; civil rights activist:
I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives or the color of their feathers called into question.

Richard Nixon, 37th President of the United States:
The chicken did not cross the road. I repeat: no chicken crossed any road.

Timothy Leary, "psychedelic" psychologist:
Because that's the only kind of trip the Establishment would let the chicken take.

Okay. I have a lot more responses to this question that I will post in the weeks ahead, but right now I think I will give this running gag a break before it runs a fowl of anyone and lays an egg, if it hasn't already.

For the next two weeks, October 23 and 30, Waxy Dragon will be here telling Halloween themed jokes; and then I'll return in November with some fresh material (I hope).
Until then, take care everyone. Have a great week and please be back next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!-AtP.
