You don't see that everyday
I was driving home last night. I came up on a car doing about 50, I was right at the speed limit which was 65. I passed him. He was driving a mid 80s 4 door sedan that looked in reasonable shape. He was probably in his 60s or so. All pretty normal for Iowa roads.

He did, however, have a chicken in his lap. Now that is something you don't see everyday.

My brain is strange today. It is wandering to what Gary Larson would do with a seeing eye chicken...

Though, why anyone checks out other drivers' laps at highway speed is something we may not want to know. :-)

It was more that the chicken was looking out the window, with this look like it wished it was a dog ...

I'm thinking that it needs to be a parody of Chuck Berry's Maybelline...which already mentions a "Coop" DeVille.

In the song, at some point, the chicken needs to steer the car because the driver has fallen asleep.

Call the song "Chicken At the Wheel"

I don't know what tune, but Arlo Guthrie's Running Down the Road would fit the title.

Well, the chicken evidently was tired of *crossing* the road...
Maybe the chicken wanted the man to drive down the centre of the road so it could lay it on the line...

I want FRESH fried chicken, not the stuff that's been sitting out all day, drying out under a heat lamp. In fact, the best way to get chicken that fresh is by bringing them the chicken myself!
