Fowl Play – a replay. (by Maggie Millus)



I hate stupidity.  I could say that stupid people drive me nuts but I’m not nuts or crazy (yes, there is a difference).  So I’ll just have to say, I have no tolerance for stupid people.


For example:  The other day my principal got a phone call from an irate parent (to those of you who don’t know me, I teach science in a well-moneyed urban high school).  The complaint: The student’s mother said I showed my students chicken porn.  I replied to the charge, ”Dr. Smartz (not his real name), I showed absolutely no pictures of any chickens fornicating or much less masturbating.”


“Well,” he replied, “you must have shown them something.  She definitely said the chickens were naked. ”  Hmmmm,  naked chickens.  That’s what it’s about.  A naked chicken.  I was going to ask was it a frontal nude or a fanny shot, but I was trying to avoid the proverbial white slip (warning) or even worse, a pink slip (meaning you are so out of here!).


Yes, I did show a photo of a naked chicken, in other words,  it was featherless.  But this featherless chicken was a transgenic chicken meaning it was some poor fowl whose genes  (and soon to be, eggs) were scrambled by some sadistic molecular geneticist.


“Yes, Dr. Smartz,” I finally admitted.  “The bird was indeed butt naked. I won’t show the picture ever again.”


“Good,” he nodded. “ And by the way, no pictures of hairless cows or monkeys either!”


So for all of you who don’t want to see a butt naked chicken’s bare behind or otherwise, here is a paper doll of a transgenic chicken.  You can cut out its  clothes and cover its naked little ass to your heart’s content!



(And yes, I know, there is more than one way to dress a chicken!)
