Einstein: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road moved
beneath the chicken depends on your frame of reference.
Captain James T Kirk: To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.
Andersen Consulting: Deregulation of the chicken's side of the road was threatening its dominant market position. The chicken was faced with the significant challenges of creating and developing the competencies required for the newly competitive market. Andersen Consulting, in a partnering relationship with the client, helped the chicken by rethinking its physical distribution strategy and implementation process. Using the Poultry Integration
Model (PIM). Andersen helped the chicken use its skills, methodologies, knowledge, capital and experiences to align the chicken's people, processes and technology in support of its overall strategy within a Programmed Management framework. Andersen Consulting convened a diverse cross-spectrum of road
analysts and best chickens along with Andersen consultants with deep skills in
the transportation industry to engage in a two-day itinerary of meetings in order to leverage their personal knowledge capital, both tacit and explicit, and to enable them to synergize with each other in order to achieve the implicit goals in delivering and successfully architecting and implementing an enterprise wide value framework across the continuum of poultry cross-median
processes. The meeting was held in a park-like setting, enabling and creating an impactful environment which was strategically based, industry focused and built upon a consistent, clear and unified market message and aligned with chicken's mission, vision and core values. This was conducive towards the creation of total business integration solution. Andersen Consulting helped the chicken change to become more successful.

I thought it was because Heidi Rosen of the RIAA sent the chicken a Cease & Desist letter claiming the chicken was violating the recording industries' other-side-of-the-road copyrights and infringing on its trademarks and patents and being a thread to freedom and democracy.

JERRY SEINFELD: Why does anyone cross a road? I mean, why doesn't anyone ever think to ask, What the heck was this chicken doing walking around all over the place, anyway?"
BUDDHA: Asking this question denies your own chicken nature.
COLONEL SANDERS: I missed one?
DR. SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes! The chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed, I've not been told!
TIMOTHY LEARY: Because that's the only trip the establishment would let it take.
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.: I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.
FREUD: The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.
