Blog comments Your Say

  • What came first: the free range egg or the caged egg?
    I simply can't sleep at night due to pondering the quality of life of a chook.
    This little conundrum about chickens is such a metaphore for our hum-drum lives, don't cha thunk?
    Has anyone ever considered the chicken and female emancipation?
    Roosters don't lay eggs, do they?
    Well, high on my hit-list of revenge is that for every man who's ever shot off their big mouth about birth, motherhood, contraception et el, there'll be one born as a chicken, giving birth every single day, in a cage.
    So, when did men become so interested in chooks? You treat women like battery hens every day you draw breathe, so shut the bulldust.
    Men,...honestly. Go buy a V8, or a lawnmower or something like that to define yourselves and leave us chickens alone.
