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
engineers.

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....

Pity they didn’t go down to see old Colonel Sanders and pick up a cooked one.
At least they could’ve eaten it when they were finished.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Hey folks I just recived a cable from a friend of mine who works at the ONA at Canberra.

Chicken SAM based missiles deployment in North Korean DMZ?

Chicken deployment technology could possibly make current ground based SAMs obsolete. Military aircraft so far have no known countermeasures or ways of detecting a high velocity incomming chickens at 6' o clock. This could possibly give rouge states with potential to deploy WOMADs without fear of attack. Airborne chickens should be banned under the geneva convention!

If they made a launcher big enough chickens could be used to deploy satelites into deep space and possibly even deploy multiple warheads from ballistic missiles if it was a multi-stage chicken deployment.

frightening deploment here folks the balance of power may have shifted the chickens way.
