'Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road' Joke Actually Funny (PICTURE)

It's the oldest joke in the book. Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side.

The one-liner is known around the world, and the stupidity of it is what usually gets a chuckle (OK from a child, maybe). But this screenshot of a 4chan thread captured by Divination shows at least two people who found deeper meaning in the ages-old joke (warning, some unsavory language is used).

All we're saying is that is one dark chicken. (Via Buzzfeed)
