What is the origin of the question Why did the chicken cross the road?
In ancient times, when farmers were first domesticating animals, they chose large areas of grasslands that they closed in with tall wooden fences, so the wild chickens couldn't fly over the top and would stay a reasonably short distance from the farmer's house. The farmer would put grain and worms in these areas to attract the chickens, while, over time, he would gradually decrease the size and height of the fenced in area. Finally, after the chickens were used to being fenced in, they never tried to escape because there was always food for them within the fenced in area. One day, the farmer was late bringing the chickens their food, so one of the smarter chickens found out that he could actually fly over the shorter fence, so he did, to look for food on the neighboring farmer's land. When the farmer finally did come with the food, he noticed that one of his chickens had gone, so he went to his neighbor's gate to yell at his neighbor: "Why did my chicken cross the road over to your place?" and his neighbor yelled back: "To get to the other side where I keep food out for my chickens!". Well, the farmers' wife thought this was a silly argument, and when she told her friends about it, she shortened it to the familiar version we hear way too often: "Why did the chicken cross the road?" "To get to the other side!"***(ACTUALLY, I MADE THIS STORY UP, BUT IT SOUNDED AUTHENTIC, DIDN'T IT!!!) ;-} Admit it; you believed it!!!

Because 'the man' is trying to keep the chicken down. I just wish we could live in a world without a chickens motives being questioned!
Yes, Tecnicaly chickens can fly
The answer is very simple. The chicken wanted to get to the other side. The reason for the odd answer is to fool the person you're asking. They will look pretty dumb because t…he main factor of jokes is that when a person asks another person a question, the other person would usually say that they do not know the answer but in this case, the answer is too simple! In other words, this joke is meant for the person who asked this joke to have their own snickers and chuckles only.
Chickens usually cross the road to get to the other side.
you know how people always say how did the chicken cross the road weel that's because in around 1930s in Texas it was market day and a man was selling chickens he had just sol…d one and was reaching down to get the chicken when i t all of a sudden got scared and ran of acroos the road and the man who had just bought the chicken said hey why did the chicken cross the road so for a joke the man who was selling the chickens said he needed the toilet and that i where the joke why did the chicken cross the road came from ^^LOL THATS COMPLETELY WRONG. The real origination of the joke is. In the medieval times when they didnt have cars or plastic forks, a man traveled back from the future which to us is now the future. Went to the bar, got very very very drunk and then told the joke really loud. Everyone laughed like drunk idiots and then the time traveler died from alchohol poisoning. And thats why dolphins no longer have legs. And yes, I know wat Im talking about. -Love, Jason
The chicken died. Or did it even make it to the other side? Or itlol'd itself to death. He lost his duct tape when he died!
'e continnues to get on wiz hiz live...ez zat right?
He said it because it wanted to make children laugh and the children will make different answers of it and they mostly not get it correct!
because there was a snake on his side there are actually many many answers to this riddle. One of the most common that I have heard is To get to the other side. OR It was the… duck's day off. but there are way more than that.
Yeah, it completely wasted my time. But hey, this pays the bills. Let me point you in the right direction for an answer......Google. smart one its called legs

First of all she didn't cross the road she was driving down the road in her Mustang GT (Black with silver stripes) and then, all of a sudden around the corner she saw Lady Clu…ckCluck and then started debating whether she was a hen or a rooster. As she continued driving down the road she heard some rooster singing "chick chick chick oh" and realized it was Cluckin' Bieber then she thought to herself, "Oh my God he sounds like a dieing cow."So she turned her music on really loud so she wouldn't have to listen to that horrible singing, but the music was so loud that she didn't hear the sirens of the police behind her and the next thing she knew she was waking up at the hospital with her aunt Henny by her side. "Gallina your awake!" exclaimed Henny "where am I, Where's my smoothie, why can't i feel my legs!?" asked Gallina "you got in a bad car accident Gallina" after months of rehab, car repairs, and searching for the lost triple berry smoothie "What a beautiful morning, i think ill go for a drive" you'll never guess who she saw this time...Baakbaak Obama
