World's Fair

Chicken chicken chicken

Believe it or not, this is the second post at the World’s Fair which just has the word “chicken” three times in the title. Anyway, this went viral a few years ago, but for some reason I find it really really funny. Plus, it’s on my mind because it relates a little to an event I’m involved in coming up, which is all about presentation and speaking opportunities.

Here’s the paper (front page shown and link to pdf here)

And here is the video:

How he handles the question at the end is particularly inspired.

    That’s like one of the funniest talks I’ve ever seen. I think the person who’s like howling in the back really adds to the video.

    Excerpts from the poem by John Cooper Clark, “Evidently chicken town”.

    the fucking pubs are fucking dull

    the fucking clubs are fucking full

    of fucking girls and fucking guys

    with fucking murder in their eyes

    a fucking bloke is fucking stabbed

    waiting for a fucking cab

    you fucking stay at fucking home

    the fucking neighbors fucking moan

    keep the fucking racket down

    this is fucking chicken town

    the fucking cops are fucking keen
    to fucking keep it fucking clean

    the fucking chief’s a fucking swine

    who fucking draws a fucking line

    at fucking fun and fucking games

    the fucking kids he fucking blames

    are nowehere to be fucking found

    anywhere in chicken town

    fuckin’ stuck in chickentown
