Three Chickens? What good are 3 chickens?
The alarming news has reached me by the grapevine. Since this blog has a whole batch of slackers who are shirking their duties to say stuff like good morning, good night, how are you, and stuff like that, anything at all, I am having to bear the harsh burden of carrying the water from the pump to the wash day tubs all by myself. First of all, Ann never told me she had cut her chicken allocation down to 3. Why 3? With 3 chickens you might get one or two eggs a day but not enough for potato salad, omelets, cakes, pies, cookies, etc., etc. We are supposed to be spending more money, creating economic stimulus, not spending less. We must do our patriotic duty. Consider these factors: With 3 chickens, you still get voluminous quantities of you know what which you have to dump over your neighbor's fence. You might as well have five or even ten. There are economies of scale, which means for Econ 110 know nothings that the more you have and do the cheaper the having and doing. I am told these will be gorgeous chickens. Are chickens for showing off or are they for eggs, feather beds, fried chicken for Sunday dinner, and eggs for omelets? Ordinarily I wouldn't take time on the Sabbath day, but I was so shocked to learn of the reallocation of chicken resources down to 3 without having been consulted to begin with that I felt it was my duty to discuss this urgent matter. Have a nice day.
