police describe the victims as "extra crispy."

Now that's really clucked up.

Fire officials are trying to determine what caused the fire.

I suspect it was some combination of high temperature, fuel, and oxygen present inside the coop.

DOH....I think that one physically hurt me...
2009-12-18 12:25:11 PM  
Breast of luck putting out the fire.
2009-12-18 12:25:15 PM  
Headlines like this really fry my gizzards.

/next up, truck with coleslaw, biscuits and beans headed to assist.

The carnage is described as delicious...

[reads article]
"No one was injured, and there were no chickens or eggs in the abandoned building..."

Firefighters have been working for hours on the coleslaw
2009-12-18 12:26:04 PM  
Hopefully there were no burning cocks during the blaze.

I suspect supernatural causes--probably a poultrygeist.
2009-12-18 12:26:59 PM  
this must be what happened at the end of the cow revolution (new window)
2009-12-18 12:27:07 PM  
These puns are making me feel peckish.

Painted my grandma's chicken house one time. Dropped my gum . . . thought I found it 6 times.

150? That's not exactly a poultry number.

The coop,

The coop,

The coop is on fire...
2009-12-18 12:35:46 PM  
The article did not mention arson.
And Subby spelled foul wrong.

Oh... never mind
2009-12-18 12:36:52 PM  
A little bbq sauce will put out that fire.

They should grill the suspects.
2009-12-18 12:39:01 PM  
I'll bring the BBQ sauce. Who's got the beer?

What if it's organic and free-range? And voluntarily donated? I understand some of them will eat a roast beef sandwich. Why not some quality sausage?

I'm just about to get the chicken achievement on MW2, so I'm feeling really jealous right now...
2009-12-18 01:21:41 PM  
Tastes like chicken.
2009-12-18 01:28:59 PM

Not afraid to battle 150 people.

victims seen running from the flames...

I was on ambulance duty when our dept was called in for mutual aid for this fire. The guys did a hell of a job last night as it was about 12 degress with a nasty wind. Didnt matter that it was a 'surround and drown', being on the nozzle in that weather will make you an ice cube in minutes. Hopefully, they had some decent re-hab set up for them. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
2009-12-18 01:50:48 PM  
What a complete cock-up. I'm sure the owners of the farm had some sort of poultry excuse, but I'm sure that a chick of their credentials will reveal an attempt to duck the pigs.

2009-12-18 02:01:58 PM  
I prefer extra crispy.
2009-12-18 02:40:38 PM  
Awwwww, man... this is a chickenshiat story.
2009-12-18 02:42:26 PM


/do you know what they do to those chickens?
//no but it's delicious
2009-12-18 05:08:23 PM  
I really am so sorry for the awful headline, peeps.

I wonder if this article will win a Pullet Surprise?
