So did the chicken really cross the road (all the way) & what for? A joke or an anti-joke.
It may not be so funny that the chicken made it to the other side but it is much more heart warming & far less sad. We may think humour is good for us & it is but it can also be our undoing. It is another reason why Scripture gives us guiding principles to keep us in check.
Eph 5:4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
Some of Lots family thought God's wisdom & judgement a joke & paid a dear & costly price.
Gen 19:14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry his daughters. He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the LORD is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.
Sooner or later reality bites
