Piece of chicken thinks it's an eagle

Look what I found on my dinner plate tonight.


  1. I saw the title before the picture.
    Expected an editorial about congress and its handling of SOPA.

    My vote for congressional mascot: piece of chicken that thinks it’s an eagle.

  2. Great. So now I imagine the soul of some recently-deceased chicken, wistfully reciting Magee’s “High Flight” to no one in particular.

    Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
    Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
    Of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
    You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
    High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
    I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
    My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .

    Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
    I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
    Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
    And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
    The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

    Yep. Definitely past my beddy-bye time. Enjoy your T-Rex/chicken.

    1. I like to watch this once in a while to make me feel like I’m 5 years old again, ready to watch Beany and Cecil: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzQYd_INSOg

  3. Mark, sometimes I love your little random observations, but sometimes… :) :)

    Guess that’s just the nature of these kinds of things.

  4. I think it bears a closer resemblance to a hippo with it’s jaws agape, perhaps to ward off an intruding crocodile or awaiting a gracious zookeeper to toss a pumpkin into its eager maw.

  5. Why am I the only one who looks at it and sees a vulture? Must be because black vultures are my favorite birds. You’ve gotta love a bird that barks like a dog.

  6. I see things like this all the time. I’m glad I’m not the only adult that does. You could have made a mold of it and cast it in precious metal clay. A silver chicken nugget eagle head would make a great medallion.

  7. Yea I see the eagle but Jesus did you really eat that? It looks disgusting in the pict, like someone or some THING took a bite out of it before serving it to you. Chicken in this country is sick to begin with…  ever notice how HUGE the legs are these days compared to the 60’s when you were a kid? That’s not right man.
