Sometimes it’s fun to apply for a job because you get questions like this. Well, I don’t know why the chicken crossed the road, but I know why the snail crossed the road ^.^
Still, I got curious why the chicken did and found “answers” from some smart people:
Albert Einstein: The chicken did not cross the road. The road passed beneath the chicken.
Charles Coulomb: The chicken found a similar chicken on this side of the road to be repellent.
Erwin Schrodinger: The chicken doesn’t cross the road. Rather, it exists simultaneously on both sides…..just don’t peek.
Peter Higgs: We must first find the chicken.
