A man was driving down a country road one day at 45 miles per hour when suddenly he noticed a 3-legged chicken running at the same speed beside his truck.
Though he thought this odd, the man decided to speed up so he wouldn't cause an accident with the chicken.
The man sped up to 55 miles per hour, but low and behold, so did the 3-legged chicken.
The man then sped up to 65 miles per hour only to again be equaled in speed by the 3-legged chicken.
As the man watched in amazement, the chicken suddenly made a sharp left turn and took off down a side road toward a small farm.
The man quickly also made the left turn and followed the chicken to the small farm, parking out front.
Looking around the man found the farmer around back in the midst of many 3-legged chickens.
After greeting the farmer, the man asked him why he was raising 3-legged chickens.
"Well we figure," said the farmer, "That with an average family of 3 people, only 2 can have a chicken leg with an average chicken. But with a three legged chicken, each member of the family can enjoy a chicken leg of their own."
"That's pretty wise," said the man, who then asked "well how do your 3-legged chickens taste?"
"I don't know," said the farmer. "We've never been able to catch one."
