Savage Chickens

What’s this? Pareidolia, astronomy, death from the skies, chickens, and funny all in one place?

Yup. It’s a comic strip called Savage Chickens, and this one was pretty funny. I need to start collecting comics like this; I have a few already.

    Hahaha! ^_^ I literally laughed out loud by the irony. Poor chicken, it is now crisp. At least it will taste nice.

  3. Yeah, I laughed out loud too.

  4. Bah, those chickens are always talking about the sky falling.

    I love the Savage Chickens comic about the Kessel Run. The humor has levels for us teachers of Astronomy.

  6. I’ve always suspected I was being stared at by chickens.

  7. The chickens know a little about science, so they’re one step up from fundagelicals…

    Oh – so that’s why chickens cross on the lawn!

    This one might tickle your fancy where it comes to the Hoaglands of this world.

    I LOVE Savage Chickens! The humor is so original… they are chickens, for Christ’s sake!

    I’ve been reading Savage Chickens for years. They occupy a honored space on my My Yahoo homepage.

    Savage Chickens rocks! And not just meteoric rocks, but igneous and ingenious rocks, too!

    Thanks for giving me the name of the comic. As a corporate drone this was so hilarious : but I had it by chance. Now I learn is a ongoing comic.
