VA SHORE: Hunks of raw chicken rain down on horse farm, strike student rider
ASSAWOMAN — A local teen’s horseback riding lesson ended abruptly after she was hit in the head by a foot-long hunk of raw chicken that fell out of a cloudless sky.There's the quote of the day, week, month, and possibly year contained in the story, though:
Fortunately, what hit Cassie Bernard was the smallest of three or more poultry parts that rained down on Queen Hive Farm around 6 p.m. Wednesday as owner Jennifer Cording was giving a lesson to a group of advanced students while several parents looked on.
“We can’t have pieces of chicken falling out of the sky,” Johnston said.Repeal the law of gravity now!
There's some dispute over whether the chicken came from a nearby Tyson plant or a farm that hadn't completely disposed of the chicken. In any case, it's good that the rider was uninjured and we hope that the VA official quoted has luck in preventing further instances of poultry-based precipitation. Personally, I blame George Bush.
And wear your helmets - you never know when the weather is going to turn fowl*...
That is all.
