Whether the chicken crossed the universe or the universe crossed the chicken is relative to your frame of reference. Albert Einstein >:[
It may very well have been one of the most astonishing events to grace the annals of history. A historic, unprecedented avian biped with the temerity to attempt such an herculean achievement formerly relegated to homo sapien astronauts is truly a remarkable occurrence. Howard Cosell >:[
The possibility of "crossing" was encoded into the objects "chicken" and "universe", and circumstances came into being which caused the actualization of this potential occurrence.
Ludwig Wittgenstein >:[
If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken-nature.
We are uncertain where exactly in the universe was the chicken, but we are certain it was moving very fast.
Werner Heisenberg >:[
It didn't cross the universe; it transcended it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson >:[
Because it wanted to see Uranus.
The Dragon's 6 year old nephew. >:[
Any number of contending discourses may be discovered within the act of the chicken crossing the universe, and each interpretation is equally valid as the authorial intent can never be discerned, because structuralism is DEAD, DAMNIT, DEAD!
Jacques Derrida >:[
Because that's the only kind of trip the Establishment would let it take.
Timothy Leary >:[
The confluence of events in the cultural gestalt necessitated that individual chickens cross the universe at this historical juncture, and therefore synchronicity brought such occurrences into being.
Carl Jung >:[
It crossed the universe because it could not stop for death.
Emily Dickinson >:[
Sir, had you known the Chicken for as long as I have, you would not so readily enquire, but feel rather the Need to resist such a public Display of your own lamentable and incorrigible Ignorance.
Dr. Johnson >:[
It crossed the universe to wander lonely as a nebula.
This one looks more like DrSpudnik than a chicken.
