The Slice

Game of chicken

Doug Burr answered today's Slice question.

He said the words “science fair” remind him of his days at Logan Elementary, and one project in particular.

“Involved feeding groups of chicks three different qualities of food and charting their growth. It all went as expected with better food resulting in bigger and healthier chickens.”

So far, so good.

“After the experiment was over we gave the chickens to my grandfather and I promptly forgot all about them. Some months later we went to his house for dinner and I commented on how good the fried chicken tasted.”

His grandfather had a ready reply. “It SHOULD taste good, it was one of yours!”

“Sigh,” wrote Burr.
