You have probably heard this joke before. Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?

The simple answer is of course, to get to the other side.

But searching on the Internet, I was able to find many humourous answers to this famous question. Here are some of the ones that stood out. If you scroll down further, you will get to read my own versions of why the chicken crossed the road quoted by some superstars, brandnames and fellow bloggers. Enjoy!!!

PLATO
For the greater good.

ALBERT EINSTEIN
Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.

DARWIN
It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees.

ARISTOTLE
To actualize its potential.

FREUD
The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

LAO TZU
Those who cluck do not know. Those who know do not cluck.

JULIUS CAESAR
It came, it saw, it crossed.

RALPH WALDO EMERSON
It didn’t cross the road; it transcended it.

HAMLET
To cross or not to cross, that is the question.

AGENT FOX MULDER
You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens have to cross the road before you believe it?

CAPTAIN KIRK
To go boldly where no chicken has gone before.

RHETT BUTLER
Frankly my dear, it didn’t give a damn!

DARTH VADER
To get to the dark side.

JACK NICHOLSON
Cause it f***ing wanted to. That’s the f***ing reason!

JOHN MC ENROE
Cross the road?! You cannot be serious! The chicken was on the line!!

JOHN LENNON
Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing the road together, in peace.

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN
We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

BILL GATES
I have just released eChicken2008, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your check book.

BARACK OBAMA
The chicken crossed the road because it was time for CHANGE. The chicken wanted CHANGE!

JOHN MCCAIN
My friends, that chicken crossed the road because it recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON
When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure -- right from Day One! -- that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.......

GEORGE W BUSH
We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.

BILL CLINTON
I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?

AL GORE
Chicken shall not shit while crossing the road. This is for a green environment.

LEE KUAN YEW
We have installed crossing lights at all traffic junctions. All chickens should follow instructions while crossing the road.

NAJIB RAZAK
What chickens? I don't know any chickens... especially those from Mongolia.

ABDULLAH BADAWI
We have to be fair to all chickens. Some want to cross over the road, some do not. ..... Zzzzzz ......zzzzzz ....... Now what were we talking about? Ah yes, chickens. We will form a Royal Commission to decide whether it is right for them to cross the road.

MAHATHIR
Now even non-bumi chickens want to cross the road! How can they disrespect and disregard apa nama bumi chickens? We must be allowed to cross over first. It is our special privilege and no one can challenge that!

ANWAR
We have enough chickens waiting to cross over in September.

SHAHRIR
All foreign chickens are welcome in Malaysia but they must not cross over the road within 50km of the border.

AHMAD ISMAIL
The chicken has no right to cross the road. The chickens are pendatang.

VK LINGAM
Looks like a chicken, clucks like a chicken but may not necessarily be a chicken.

Hillarious, no? I could not stop laughing!

And now, my own take on why the chicken crossed the road...

L’OREAL
The chicken is worth it!

MCDONALDS
It’s loving it!

AIRASIA
Now every chicken can cross the road!

CONFUCIUS
The journey to the other side of the road begins with a single step.

BRITNEY SPEARS
Ooops…! The chick did it again!

MARIAH CAREY
WHEN YOU BELIEVE you can cross the road, just say BYE BYE to other chicks here and MAKE IT HAPPEN! It may seem like FOREVER, but once you reach the other side, you will know the truth, that a HERO lies in you!

MY BUG LIFE
It wanted to taste the food and see the sights on the other side.

CC
It could hear the quaint melody calling it to experience the Malaysian life in the bungy land across the road.

KEEYIT
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That’s why it had to cross the road today.

MONICA
It wanted to sniff the rose.

SUITUAPUI
Because it was crazy....and still crazy after all these years!

TEKKAUS
It knew its day would start over there.

JOHNNY ONG
Because life ain’t happening over here. Life’s happening over there!

TWOSUPERHEROES
It has abnormal capacity and desire for food, traveling places and enjoy the best life has to offer.

CBENC12
Because life’s a rollercoaster!

DAY DREAMER
Its thoughts and thinking in reality made it cross the road.

EASTCOASTLIFE
It wanted people to hear its story. It was determined. It was fearless. How much would it take to break it?

ACURA
It believed in looking reality straight in the eye and denying it.

EILING
It is a full time workaholic, a part time alcoholic, and occasionally a chickcoholic.

MOLLY
It wanted to build its home sweet home across the road.

JAM
Because life is like that!

PIKEYDUDE
Because it was striving for life and friends, and was pondering its own existence in this great, vast universe.

LINA
It was a Japan-mad chicken and it could see Sony, Toyota, Sushi King, Rakuzen etc. etc. on the other side.

MISSMALL
It wanted to get to Bloomingdale for a wedding banquet!

BENGBENG
It didn’t like the longkang over here and wanted to cross to the longkang over there.

QUACHEE
It is a “dreamer” and it believes in living its dreams and would like to inspire other chickens to cross the road with it.

MARIUCA
It wished upon a falling star that it would cross the road to smell the perfumes!

FOONGPC
There’s always a first time for everything, and CROSSING THE ROAD is no different!

    OR the RPK chicken?
    Because the internet cafe was the other side...

    Or even the Theresa Chicken....?
    Because the Ex-MB's Blog said it did cross the road...
