The Feast of Saint Jo Anne

Brothers, Sisters, and Transgendered Comedists Everywhere,

This week we celebrate the feast of Saint Jo Anne. Thursday was Jo Anne Worley's 70th birthday. A regular on The Merv Griffin Show, she became one the cast of Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In for which she is most well rememered. A stage actor and animated feature voice-over artist, she has many credits to her name.

In her honor, we open the floor this weekend to all chicken jokes:

Why does a chicken coop have two doors?
If it had four, it would be sedan.

Two chickens in are in a barn when one of them says to the other, "I'm really worried about this bird flu." The other one says, "Oh my god, a talking chicken!"

What glows in the dark and says, "Cluck"?
Chicken Kiev.

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
The rooster.

Is chicken soup good for your health?
Not if you're a chicken.

Seeing her young chick run trying to cross a busy road, the mother hen said, "If your father saw you do that he's turn over in his gravy."
And then, of course, there's the old classic,
A travelling salesman is driving down a dirt road at 50 miles per hour when a chicken wiht three legs speeds by him. Amazed, he looks out and again the three-legged chicken speeds past the car. Whe he reaches the house of a farmer, he asks him about it and the farmer explains that for years they were having fights because he, his wife, and his daughter all preferred drumsticks. So he started breeding them with three legs. "Wow," said the salesman, "That's amazing. How do they taste?" "Dunno," said the farmer, "haven't caught one of them, yet."

Happy birthday Jo Anne Worley.

Live, love, and laugh,

Irreverend Steve
