Monday Joke - Chicken Gun
Sometimes it DOES take a Rocket Scientist!! (true story)
Scientists at Roll Royce built a gun specifically to launch dead
chickens at the windshields of airliners, and military jets, all
travelling at maximum velocity. The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of
collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.
American engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it
on the windshields of their new high speed trains.
Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the American
When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken
hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed
into smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped the
engineer 's back-rest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin, like
an arrow shot from a bow.
The horrified Yanks sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results of the
experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the
British scientists for suggestions.
You 're going to love this......
Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo:
"Defrost the chicken."
Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....
