For what reason did the poultry transverse the thoroughfare?

I look forward to a day when poultry can cross the road without having its motives questioned.

You put your name on this twice by leaving a comment.

Good point. Well, if people don't read the comments, they'll just see your name now.

I like reading the comments. But this one doesn't deserve any.

If done during the "clean and jerk," there are no rules.
Lurker on 2015-02-03 12:52:24
You wouldn't be clean anymore.
LLapp on 2016-01-18 21:47:21
Jerk? Please, urination during weightlifting was bad enough!

That worked for me the last time I wrote a friend's name on the wings of a dragon.

If I ever meet up with a dragon, I doubt my first impulse will be to write anything on its wings.

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, has a lot of dragons too. You'll find him in Berk. Which I think is inhabited by English speaking Vikings.
susanith on 2017-08-23 13:04:48
Good advice until you get to the dragon part. Does that mean it is impossible to attract good fortune?
