No, this isn’t a post about undercooked poultry… it’s about a funny little bit of local vandalism that I was just told about.  Have any of you ever been to Chicken On The Way on 14th Ave?  I recall my mom picking up chicken and corn fritters from there when we were kids;  it was greasy, for sure, but I recall really liking the fritters.  The place is well known in our city, whether you’re a fan of it or not.

Well… outside this place, they have a giant chicken statue.  Here’s what it looked like:

Apparently, a few months ago, some vandals decided it would be funny to repaint the thing pink!  Like so:

Why?  Really, why?  Sure, it’s funny, but you can tell they certainly took the time to do it right, taping off the beak and eyes to make sure they didn’t make any mistakes.  Apparently the owner wasn’t totally upset;  I read in the paper that he liked the attention it was receiving after its makeover. 

Still, it looks like every chicken has its day, including this nine-foot concrete one;  it got another makeover by a local mural artist:

 And thus ends the story of the Pink Chicken.

(Boy, you know you’re running out of stuff to blog about when… forgive me, readers!)
