    Your chicken is about to lay an egg.

    Oh boy.

    Teresa is definitely going to hear about this one from GoComics management.

    True story:

    Inspired by the classic “Chicken Lover” episode of South Park, my ex girlfriend long ago took to calling me “Chicken F*er” as a term of endearment.

    That is the name under which I am listed in her cell phone’s address book.

    So recently, she was visiting at her mother’s house, when I happened to dial her number. Her mother said, “Oh, your phone is ringing,” and picked up her phone to hand it to her.

    At which point she saw the name, “Chicken F*er” on the caller ID.

    Worse yet, her daughter told her it was me!

    i blame it on china.

    too much lead in the red paint when the chinamen painted the red line on the glass thermometers.

    I’m not sure if I buy Baslim’s assertion, as that would be a very intricate, difficult thing to Photoshop. Hoping to learn the origin of that photo, I did a reverse image search.

    Because the photo has become something of a meme, there were far too many results for me to sift through. I did, however find this remarkable collection of images:

    Which, of course, includes this delightful portrait of typical GoComics readers:

    Somehow I don’t think it’s an egg that’s going to/has come out of that chicken. Oh, and don’t forget to sanitize that thermometer before using it again.

    Well, Teresa, I do believe you have achieved a quite high EQ in this cartoon. (EQ = Eww Quotient) Keep up the good work.

    After Teresa’s comic I am going to turnoff my PC and be in bed by 4 AM, where all sane people are if they are to get up before the chickens. Or is it bleeep crows? Hey I got bleeeped? Wassamatteru? Chaucer used “cock”

    Maybe all he needs is a longer thermometer, that would result in a deep fryer.

    Get a discombulator. No calibration necessary. Call Jethro Bodine. He will tell you all the answers. But, if granny C. tries to interfere, then run like Mrs. Dryesdale

    Be careful what yo wish for. my wife and her mother kept complaining about how the meat thermometers weren’t working. I found out they were submersing them in the dishwater. Then they went out and bought an electric probe thermometer, neat all plastic gadget with batteries etc to replace the thermometers. The next roast went into the oven with the probe inserted in the meat and the neat plastic device melted. Back to the old thermometers.

    @Flight Suit:

    Your first link goes to a Google Translate page rather than the Russian original, and I don’t get the images. The original is here:

    For some reason I’m getting 403 on the individual image…

    Are those the classifieds in the background? And if so, why?

    If you cook as often as I do, you don’t need the thermometer, but I can tell you where to stick the probe.

    Some places I’ve visited…

    You must get the same questioning looks as I do when customs officials look at my passport and see stamps from Libya and Egypt.

    @Frogapplause: I have been to Istanbul and many other interesting places, but I’ve never been to Finland and the Baltics. They look beautiful.

    @cleokaya: Oh, yes. After 10 years of travel to places like Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Serbia, Albania, Romania, Bulgaria, Malta, DRC, and 3 extensions in my passport, I often was “selected for special processing.” The price of notoriety, I guess…
