Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?
And so…. let's ask some folks enagaged in autism internent debate....
Why did the chicken cross the road?
Maria: You say that the evidence does not suggest that the chicken crossed the road. However, the researchers did not in fact assess this question with the permutations of anti-icing surfaces, humidity control, cloud coverage, breed of chicken, maturity of said chicken, relative wind velocity, relative traffic that day, the traffic consisted of a hybrid vehicle, the quality testing of said vehicle, and whether the chicken was in fact bearing any coconuts…… taken into account.
Mark Blaxill: If you think your ridiculous critique of the theory of chickens crossing roads is valid. You should submit it to an academic journal. We shall now thoroughly discuss my supplemental and supporting research of this issue here on my blog.
A certain set of researchers: We were quoted as citing an article that shows chickens do in fact cross Freeways. Unfortunately, somebody….. showed that our supporting article merely had a chicken crossing a deer path in the woods. However, we feel that deer paths and superhighways are quite similar and see no need for further clarification on this issue.
Michelle Dawson: Has anyone bothered to ask what the ethics are of chickens crossing roads?
Alyric: Did the chicken choose of its own free will to cross the road?
McEwen: Chicken crossing a road… chicken crossing a road…. Now dears, that reminds me of an amusing anecdote that happened last week on the way to the grocery store….
Kathleen Seidel: [Kathleen locks her vision upon the road, and the road suddenly becomes mobile and passes beneath the chicken, leaving it startled but completely unharmed.]
Autism Diva: The chicken was running away, because it didn’t want to be chelated. Smart chicken.
Do’C: If you have evidence of chickens crossing roads, you may present it, otherwise….. have a nice day.
LB/RB Team: We are going to go ahead and suggest that it was to get to the other side.
Interverbal: You ask “Why did the chicken cross the road?”
Is an assumption on your part. You are assuming what you should be proving, and therefore employing the fallacy of begging the question.
