Caution: Chicken Crossing

Because he's four and one curious little guy... the most-asked question in my son's universe is "why?" He and I often twirl into circular logic when the questions get silly or I bring out the heavy poultry artillery -- chickens.

Why did you change the lightbulbs?

Because these are fluorescent and last longer but use less power.

Why do they use less power?

Because it's a different technology.

Why is it different?

Because the chicken crossed the road.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get to the other side.

Why are you laughing?
