    And Then A Chicken Strolls into Studio.

    Jason King Oct 30 '05 4

    So last week we all hadn't slept and were working on getting our projects ready for presentation. My desk is directly perpendicular to one of the two main doors in studio. As I was cutting basswood, I did my first actual doubletake in several years. I looked over at the door and a chicken nonchalantly walked through the door. My response was, of course, "Holy shit, a rooster just walked through the door". (Rooster. Chicken. Hen. Who can tell at first glance? It should also be noted that Woodbury is in an urban setting. Think NBC, Disney etc., etc.) As more people noticed the chicken, the chicken certainly noticed more people and got frightened. It began to fly (chickens fly?) from 3/4 walltop to desk to 3/4 walltop to desk; crushing 1/4 scale models in its ravaging wake. It was like watching a fowl reinterpretation of Godzilla as 1/4 scale buildings were being crushed beneath the apparently huge chicken feet. It was one of the most odd/funny things I have seen in a long time and I am kicking myself for not taking a photograph.

    And.

    As we were all wondering how to get the chicken out of studio, studiomate Ruben walks over grabs the chicken puts its head under its wing and kind of spun it three times and put it to sleep. And then did with it what should naturally be done with a sleeping chicken; put it under someones desk in 3rd year studio.

    How Ruben knows chicken hypnotism I will never know.

      That is one hilarious story, and I want an update as to the poor 3rd year student who awakened the beast...
