A fellow was motoring down a country road, doing the posted speed limit. All of a sudden a running chicken overtook him and sped away, quickly disappearing in the distance. A few minutes later, another chicken did the same thing. Then a third.
The fellow was wondering what was up with these lightning-fast chickens when he saw a sign at a farmhouse that said "Eggs For Sale!" So, he stopped the car and asked the old farmer minding the egg stand if he knew anything about those super-fast chickens. "Why yes," the farmer replied, "those chickens came from right here. I bred them myself. They're so fast because they have three legs."
"Why would you want to breed chickens with three legs?" asked the motorist.
"Well," answered the farmer, "folks around here are partial to drumsticks. So, if each chicken has three legs instead of two, there are more drumsticks to go around."
"Do they taste the same as two-legged chickens?" asked the motorist.
"I couldn't tell you," replied the farmer, "I haven't been able to catch one yet."
