Martin Luther King, Jr. : I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.
Malcolm X :
Because it would get across that road by any means necessary.
Machiavelli : So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely chicken’s dominion maintained.
A Long Island woman’s quest for breakfast ended in a jail cell after police say she drove up to a jail security booth and mistook it for a fast food drive-thru window.
Lizabeth Ildefonso, of Jamesport, N.Y., was arrested on March 16 after she drove up to the Suffolk County jail and tried to order a “bacon, egg, and cheese.” According to the Riverhead News-Review, the 44-year-old was told by Suffolk County deputies that she was really at a jail but kept demanding breakfast. Ildefonso “insisted that she really wanted a sandwich,” the Suffolk County Sheriff’s office said in a statement.
Officers at the jail noticed that Ildefonso’s eyes were glassy and she had a white powder in her left nose before performing a sobriety check. After “performing poorly” in a field sobriety test, the woman was arrested for driving while impaired by drugs. Police also noted that the 44-year-old was driving without a valid license.
“It apparently was put to good use today although the surrounding circumstances were a little unexpected,” the Sheriff’s office added.
Ludwig Wittgenstein : The possibility of “crossing” was encoded into the objects “chicken” and “road”, and circumstances came into being which caused the actualization of this potential occurrence.
