Top Excuses for missing work
Why DID the chicken cross the road?
To steal a job from a decent, hardworking American.
Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes! The chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed, I've not been told!
To die. In the rain.
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.:
I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads, without having their motives called into question.
In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.
It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
It was an historical inevitability.
This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping fifty tons of nerve gas on it.
I intend to prove that the chicken crossed the road, at the behest of the President of the United States of America, in an effort to distract law enforcement officials and the American public from the criminal wrongdoing our highest elected official has been trying to cover up. As a result, the chicken is just another pawn in the president's ongoing and elaborate scheme to obstruct justice and undermine the rule of law. For that reason, my staff intends to offer the chicken unconditional immunity, provided he co-operates fully with our investigation. Furthermore, the chicken will not be permitted to reach the other side of the road, until our investigation and any Congressional follow-up investigations have been completed. (We also are investigating whether Sid Blumenthal has leaked information to the Rev. Jerry Falwell, alleging the chicken to be homosexual in an effort to discredit any useful testimony the bird may have to offer, or at least to ruffle his feathers.)
CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK:
To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.
You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens have to cross before you believe it?
I have just released Chicken 98, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an inextricable part of Chicken98.
Did the chicken really cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?
I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What do you mean by chicken? Could you define 'cross' please?
The road, you will see, represents the black man. The chicken crossed the "black man" in order to trample him and keep him down.
And God came down from the heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And the chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.
Did I miss one?
You DO see the benefit of the chicken crossing the road to join with the Taelons?
It's an Earth chicken, doggone it. If it wants to cross the road why should an alien tell it no?
This chicken knows me, I can help it find it's way back across the road. Keep an open mind.
By crossing the road, the chicken violated the rights of the road. The road has the right to exist free of chickens. In order to prevent this great road-arian catastrophe, we have just launced our fighters and they proceed in bombing the road. We have not, and do not intend to, ask the United Nations' permission. They'll probably agree later. Bomb the road!
But Jim! The chicken is dead!
SEVEN OF NINE:
It wanted to rediscover its humanity.
The chicken crossed the road to escape from the firebreathing dragon.
Do you see that chicken crossing the road? Da'an thinks it's his chicken... but I have secretly replaced it with one of mine, and it will blow up in about 30 seconds...
I have replaced Zo'ors chicken with a replica, and it's currently downloading all the data from the mothership computer...
I am the Companion Protector to Zo'or. You have no right to be here. This road belongs to Taelon territory. Clear this area immediately, or I will have to use force.
Is that really Da'an's chicken? It looks suspicious to me.
Our job is to follow the orders the Taelons have given us, not to question.
LILI (to Liam):
I've got the chicken, let's run!
I saw the colonel chasing it with a bucket of batter.

Having the chicken down here is dangerous, Jonathan!
Why did the chicken do this? HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY I'M SORRY?
Chickens are not made for love.
The chicken will be quite useful in our plans for the planet.
I expected the chicken to be some ego-crazed maniac, not a...
Da'an, someone I know may have gotten involved with one of Zo'or's projects, codenamed "Chicken."
SCHOOL PRINCIPAL DURING A REALLY LONG BORING ASSEMBLY:
What we have to do is create a safe environment for all those who wish to be different. All those of all relgions, those of different nationalities, and all chickens who wish to cross roads... (drones on for three hours until all students want to duck tape him to the ceiling)
"We couldn't fix the transporter beam on it!"
It takes a village of chickens to cross the road...
The chicken and I absolutely, 100% DID NOT cross that road!
PROFESSOR MAXIMILLIAN ARTURO (from SLIDERS):
The chicken did not cross the road, you blistering idiot!!
One way or another, Mr. Doors, you will end up as a roasted chicken in my oven.
I take orders from no chicken!
COLONEL SANDERS of KFC:
Put,put,put. Come here little chicken come here...
It is completely illogical for the chicken to cross the road.
If you simply show love the chicken will realize it's mistake and come back on it's own. There is never an excuse to spank a chicken.
