The farmer's son was returning from the market with the crate of chickens his father had entrusted to him, when all of a sudden, the box fell and broke open. Chickens scurried off in all different directions, but the determined boy walked all over the neighborhood scooping up the wayward birds and returning them to the repaired create. Hoping he had found them all, the boy reluctantly returned home. "Pa, the chickens got loose," the boy confessed sadly, "but I managed to find all twelve of them." The father beamed, "Well, you did real well, son, you left with seven."
A young teacher complained to her friends about how badly she was being paid. "We really get a poultry amount each month," she said. "You mean paltry," corrected one of her friends. "No. I don't," replied the teacher, "What I earn is chicken feed."
A salesman from KFC walked up to the Pope and offered him a million dollars if he would change the Lord's Prayer from "give us this day our daily bread" to "give us this day our daily chicken." The Pope refused the offer so two weeks later, the man offered the Pope $10 million to make the change. Again, the Pope refused the man's generous offer. Another week later, the man offered $20 million and the Pope finally accepted. Gathering his officials together the next day, the Pope said "I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we have just received a check for $20 million. The bad news is that we've lost the Wonder Bread account."
