A Seattle Times headline last week informed us that “Semi filled with 40,000 pounds of chicken feathers overturns on I-5 in Federal Way.” My first thought was to ask why was there a semi carrying 40,000 pounds of chicken feathers on I-5 in Federal Way?
I came up with an answer within seconds. Of course, they’ve got to go somewhere. I mean, look at all that fried chicken Americans eat. That’s a lot of bird, and that has to mean a lot of feathers.
