Legal Quandary

Something Fowl is Afoot. Well, not Anymore...

Back in November, I wrote about the neighbors who were raising chickens in their backyard. Strange as it may seem, this is actually legal, despite the fact that we live in a large city. Apparently, you can have up to 4 chickens. Who knew?

At any rate, it's a moot point now, because Mr. Neighbor forgot to lock them up one night and well, the chickens weren't there in the morning. But they left behind some feathers and entrails. Mrs. Neighbor then had to explain what happened to their 2 year old, so she told her "the chickens are with Jesus."

Part of me thinks this is really funny. The other part of me thinks that this explanation would have freaked me right on out as a child. But maybe it's just me.

97.32% of me thinks that's funny.
It makes it sound like Jesus did the damage to the chickens. What's wrong with these people?! Just tell the truth.
