The philosophical chicken

Q: WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?
A:

Aristotle:

It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

The Bible:
And God came down from the heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And the chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.

Buddha:
If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken nature.

Camus:
It doesn't matter; the chicken's actions have no meaning except to him.

Darwin:
Chickens, over great periods of time, have been naturally selected in such a way that they are now genetically dispositioned to cross roads.

Einstein:
Did the chicken really cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?

Emerson:
It didn't cross the road; it transcended it.

Freud:
The fact that you thought that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

Kant:
The chicken, being an autonomous being, chose to cross the road of his own free will.

Martin Luther King, Jr.:
I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

Machiavelli:
The point is that the chicken crossed the road. Who cares why? The ends of crossing the road justify whatever motive there was.

Marx:
It was a historical inevitability.

Fox Mulder:
You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens have to cross before you believe it?

Nietzsche:
Because if you gaze too long across the Road, the Road gazes also across you.

Sartre:
In order to act in good faith and be true to itself, the chicken found it necessary to cross the road.
