Chicken joke: Tolkien

tolkienjToday’s chicken joke queries John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings and other sagas of Middle-earth.

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?

Tolkien: It was foreseen of old by Malbeth, wise servant of the last king of Arnor:

The dark shall betoken a new day
When gold may be found among dross.
In Imladris lies the highway
That a bantam cock shall cross.
