How would you like it if I called you a chicken??


You would probably yell and growl at me to prove that you don’t mind being called any other animal, but not a chicken!

Well here’s the scene.

Friday afternoon, folks at my office like to eat out. Today it was well spent (both cash and time) at Pizza Hut. We had our fill of pizza and were waiting for the waiter to get our bill. Just then, the neighboring table was occupied by another group (who I guess also have the Friday eat-out culture). Now, I could tell from their faces, they were hungry. I mean mighty hungry. The way they were looking at the menu’s discussing stuff, as if it’s a big purchase decision.

A coupla minutes later, the leader of the group ( picture a guy who’s balding, wears frame-less spectacles, sports a french beard; a typical middle-aged techie) announced –

“Silence everyone! We all know we are hungry. So lets do this fast. I am not going to ask the question again. How many of them chicken?”

A reply from a lady – “I’m chicken.” Her neighbor – “Me too!” His neighbor -“Well, I would love to, but today it’s a shivratri (an auspicious day) else even I’m A chicken!”

I couldn’t hold it anymore. I burst out laughing.

The leader of the other group glares at me, looks at the waiter who was smiling, and says, “Except one, all four chickens.”

I paid my share of the bill, excused myself and ran out to have a hearty laugh! Boy! I know controlling my laughter is my weakness, considering the number of times I have been thrown out of the class for giggling when the teacher spoke of something which looked like a double entendre.

I just hope I don’t get to see the leader of that group anymore, else I will start laughing in the middle of nowhere for no reason! I ‘m ok meeting the “chick” but definitely not the chicken!!

    Nothing wrong meeting chickens. But I protest at the eating of chickens!

    I guess it’s a matter of choice and taste. (I am refering to the eating
    part, not the meeting 🙂 )
