As an interlude I thought I might post some humor from one of the must read wine industry blogs, Fermentation. Tom’s blog can be a little “inside baseball” but he calls it as he sees it. He had a post on why the chicken crossed the road according to various wine industry icons. Some of my favorites:-

Non Vintage Chicken—The Road
This is a superb effort by the chicken that we haven't seen in a number of crossings. A lovely blend of supple movement and a robust gate propelled chicken across the street and to a finishing hop upon a smooth, well delineated finish. 94 Points
We wanted to create the greatest crossing ever! Our chicken is dedicated to hands-on crossings that highlight the terroir of the road. This is by far the finest crossing the chicken has ever offered.

I don't care why the chicken crossed the road. I just blog about it for my own pleasure and to try to make chicken crossings more accessible to the average chicken. Before bloggers appeared on the scene the mainstream press ignored the average chicken crossing and focused only on Roosters. Bloggers are taking back Chicken Crossings and putting them in the hands of the chickens again!
