Weird, wonderful and plain freaky

Seventy years ago, a farmer beheaded a chicken in Colorado, and it refused to die. Mike, as the bird became known, survived for 18 months and became famous.

What's the difference between Mike the headless chicken and a typical politician?

Once his fame had been established, Mike began a career of touring sideshows in the company of such other creatures as a two-headed baby. He was also photographed for dozens of magazines and papers, and was featured in Time and Life magazines. Mike was put on display to the public for an admission cost of 25 cents. At the height of his popularity, the chicken's owner earned US$4,500 per month ($48,300 today).

I only saw it for the first time at Christmas. Became an addict after that. Have watched the series half a dozen times since.

I love the completely uncorrect political correctness - i.e. no political correctness whatsoever. Oddly, all the fem-nazis I know hate it - wonder why.
