I created this for a young someone, just to add smiles to their day. It accompanied a long list of chicken jokes that are rather silly. If you continue reading, you’ll understand why there is a horse, fish, sheep, turtle and cow peeking from the ditch on the other side of the road.
I’m really liking my watercolors right now, still experimenting with the combo of watercolor, ink and acrylic. I used to paint a burnt sienna wash under painting, then added color to give it an antique feel that I really love. I also used to do a lot of ink work — cross hatching, and line manipulating that was very meditative. I’m not sure how the acrylic and line work will meld, but I plan to experiment more with all this in my upcoming sketches, just for a little fun.
So, I imagine by now you are very anxious to hear those chicken jokes???? Here are the highlights. Indulge yourself. :)
Why did the chicken run across the road?
There was a car coming.
Why did the chicken cross the road halfway?
She wanted to lay it on the line.
Why did the rubber chicken cross the road?
She wanted to stretch her legs.
Why did the chicken cross the road twice?
Because it was a double-crosser.
Why did the turtle cross the road?
To get to the Shell station.

To get to the Baa Baa Shop for a haircut.
Why did the cow cross the road?
To get to the udder side.
Why did the fish cross the road?
To get to its school.

To reach his Nay-borhood.
Why did the chicken stop crossing the road?
It got tired of everyone making so many jokes!
