Naked Chickens and Timid Crabs.

May 4, 2008 - I have a dilemma this morning. Sundays usually mean I sit in bed with the crossword and a coffee while I contemplate morning. Then I get up, have an eggs and ham breakfast (Dr. Seuss is a hero of mine - wonder when his day is?), and get on with the day. Today is however International Respect for Chickens Day. According to United Poultry Concerns ( "Chickens are people too!" and apparently I'm to get on to a radio show. Seems fitting.

I once WAS a chicken. I spent several years acting as a radio stations mascot - the LB Bird. LB was a giant chicken. I was not often shown respect. If I had known then that there was an International Respect for Chickens Day it would have been exploited. So what ever do I do about my Sam I Am Sunday?

Speaking of animals that deserve respect, let's not forget Martin Z. Mollusk Day. Today is Martin's day too. Martin Z. Mollusk is a hermit crab. If he sees his shadow today, summer will be a week early. We could really to see an early summer. Spring is late. Shame it is also Naked Day. Something tells me Martin won't be coming out of his shell. Summer may just have to wait.


  1. Naked Day and Chicken Day. That's the closest I can get to Chicken And Porn day! Woo hoO!

  2. BTW: Theodor Seuss Geisel was born 04-03-02: March 2, 1904. Implicitly, you'll have to nail 3/2 as Seuss Day.

    We all expect a rhyme.

  3. May the 4th is also Luke Skywalker Day.

    May the fourth be with you!
