Why did the chicken cross the road?

Well there are interesting, far reaching suggestions and then a historical perspective:

The riddle appeared in an 1847 edition of The Knickerbocker, a New York City monthly magazine: ‘There are ‘quips and quillets’ which seem actual conundrums, but yet are none. Of such is this: ‘Why does a chicken cross the street?[’] Are you ‘out of town?’ Do you ‘give it up?’ Well, then: ‘Because it wants to get on the other side!’  (Wiki)

But, I doubt anyone ever considered “to get to the seafood place”! Just saying…….

    Look both ways before you cross the street.

    Hmmm, very interesting. If the chicken crossed this street he might become someone’s dinner.

    As cheap as chicken is on the market these days, I’d say he crossed the road to get the heck away from the butcher knife!!

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
