As if I didn't have enough to worry about, now I fear that our chickens are becoming sentient.

Yesterday I cleaned out the goat pen in the barn and, since it's not the most exciting job in the world, I brought my little transistor radio and listened to Rush Limbaugh while I was at it. The chickens must have been eavesdropping the whole time.

This morning when I let the chickens out, the rooster clearly squawked the president's name twice. "BARACK! BARACK!" Then one of the hens flapped her left wing. Finally, a third excreted a big glob of chickenshit.

Mere coincidence? I think not.

On our last trip to Yellowstone, I took a picture of a sign on the door to the visitor center. Similar signs would have caused a nation-wide outrage. Can you imagine anyone tolerating this sign on a public building?

Or this?

Or perhaps this?

No? Then why is this perfectly acceptable?


Does anyone really believe this will be the result?

I say we quit pussy-footing around and just ban all of those pesky Civil Rights for the convenience of Big Brother.
