Try crossing the road without that “dictate” I see you smeared under the wheel of an 18 wheeler in the not too distant future – or becoming a feature in a windshield of a car.
But he DID cross the road so the question remains. Why???
If the sign said “Strut”, a rooster would cross.
It didn’t have to lay and egg
Q: Why did the chicken cross the road? A: She wanted to lay it on the line.
What if we told the anti-vaxxers that the Don’t Walk sign is a government mandate?
OK. I liked the one where the Ministry of Silly walks got involved.
Conservative chickens seldom get anywhere.
“Well-behaved [chicks] seldom make history!”
Not arbitrary at all at a crosswalk. stupid chicken.
The chicken DIDN’T cross the road because I ate it.
Mentioned earlier: comic arc shows a motorcycle cop about to write-up a chicken for jay-walking, but says instead, OK! OK! I’ll tear up the ticket if you just tell my WHY you did it!! One of the best plays on this old conundrum.
The chicken would change its mind if Colonel Sanders was behind it.
The chicken did cross the basketball court because it heard that the referee was blowing fowls!
Subtle strip today
If you’re going to “cross a road” these days, be sure to look both ways, listen carefully, and watch your steps. And be prepared to change directions and your pace. The ones who are controlling the traffic lights and other signs don’t necessarily have your best interests in mind.
What a chicken.
Soon to be turned into dinner.
Any good Aaron Rogers jokes out there?
That’s not a dictate. That is essentially a statement saying, “If you choose to walk, now would be a good time.”
Civilization is based on people being willing to forego some personal freedoms for the better good.
Sometime willing to forego personal freedom comes as a result of coercion. We have laws prohibiting people’s personal freedom to murder other people or to rape them or to rob them or for even simple things like forcing them to stop for school busses or red lights. But make a law prohibiting people to infect other people with a potentially lethal disease and somehow a different reality exists.
People should be willing not to rape, burn, pillage, plunder and infect without these laws. Most people don’t need these laws, they are willing to forego these activities without having to be told not to do them. Those that do not have the moral strength and disobey them are criminals.
Isn’t it obvious?
I have come to the sad conclusion that the United States is a nation of contrarians and begrudgers bent on self-destruction.
Why did the cartoonist draw a chicken crossing the road?
Why did the chicken cross the Möbius strip? A: To get to the other… uh, let me get back to you on this one.
Why did the chicken cross the road? I live for the day when chickens’ motivations are not questioned.
If ithe chick waits long enough it’ll say “Don’t Walk”
Traffic controls interfere with my freedom of movement! I do what I want. Whatever.
Why did the chicken cross the park? To get to the other slide.
The chicken crossed the road to get to the other joke … any other joke.
Where’s the chicken’s red hat!?
Or why the members of the ignorance pandemic don’t get a vaccine.
More like a chicken not mindlessly following the dictate of the Don’t Walk sign.
How many chickens does it take to change a light bulb?
Ding…. Don’t walk ….. BEEEEEP WHUMP.
Sounds about right
hits the nail on the head. gud mahrnin crew.
I yearn for the day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
As usual, the writer of this strip is using a poor analogy to advocate blindly doing something just because the government says it is the “right thing to do” and “safe”. Walk/Don’t Walk lights are timed to the traffic lights. However, just because it says “Walk” does not mean it is safe to cross the street, you still MUST look both ways to make sure it is safe. People do run red lights! On a more serious note, I recommend looking up “Thalidomide Babies”. Deemed safe for pregnant women, it resulted in severely deformed babies.
Why did the Wiley Bear cross the iceberg?
Notice that nobody ever questions chickens Star-of-Daviding the road, or star-and-crescenting it, or chakraing it. I suspect hidden religious motivations.
She might get run over by the Marxist express bus
This particular comic strip is good example of the “apples and oranges” fallacy.

When you find youself in dangerWhen you’re threatened by a strangerWhen it looks like you will take a lickin puk puk puk pukThere is someone waitingWho will hurry up and rescue youJust Call for Super Chicken puk ack
I love the unnecessarily distinguished dialogue. Reminds me of Space Quest.
No mandates. I’ll murder anyone I want to.
I’d like to see what the chicken does when the sign changes to “Don’t Walk”.
To writerofstories: he’s a she! He’s are roosters!
Why did the contrarian cross the road? He thought he had the God-given right to force the cars to violate the laws of physics.
What I want to know is was she leading or following the egg.
But there is no requirement to walk when the sign says “walk”. And the chicken doesn’t lose it’s job as a chicken if it doesn’t walk.
Better to wait til it says “don’t walk”…
The chicken did not cross the road since she did not have a group to count before crossing the road.
