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).

Heard this one before. It would have lived for longer than 18 months but it choked on some food. The owner was in the same room but didn't notice until it was too late.

Just read the article - they couldn't find their syringe to suck the mucus from it's throat 🤢

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.

      Here is a classic I'm an idiot so it should be banned from sale, I'm sure there are plenty similar stories.

      Not being very bright Nick doesn't realise its like drinking 50 Starbucks and eating nearly 2Kg of sugar.
