I like the double meaning of the word "chicken" used in this little proverb. Okay, now get back to the anal sex posts! Just kidding.

I LOVE EDWARD MONKTON!!!!

Sorry. I may or may not be a bit obsessed with him, even if I haven't stalked him (yet). I do have an email from him. And have tried to force Brits to bring me his stuff. And framed a calendar of his. One of my favorites is: "The plate is happy, but the toast hasn't slept well and is seeking revenge." It's great.

But how do we REEAALLLLYYY know that chicken's want to fly?

They may just be content staying on the ground pecking at seeds and laying eggs.

I know I would be if I were a chicken.

It's kind of like how I dream of being a celebrity, someone of fame and fortune, however I am content watching them on TV and making fun of their stupid dim-witted drama- filled lame lives.

So therefore, I side with the chicken as both flying and celebrities are famously over-rated.

I'm not sure if I should feel sorry for it, or motivated to dream big.
Either way, chicken's delicious.

Monkton's stuff is so clever. I do believe I'll be giving his pieces to friends for birthdays now.

Thanks for the tip, Dan.

Oh, Monkton's bank account just told me tell you thank you as well.

A couple of British friends of mine gave a Monkton card once and ever since I've been obsessed. He's brill!
