Chicken Diapers

Julie Baker, owner of Pampered Poultry, is cashing in on the recent fad for keeping chickens as pets. She's selling 500 to 1000 "chicken diapers" every month, for $18 a piece. More info at The Outline:

In wealthy cities like San Francisco, chickens have even become an unlikely status symbol, with poultry owners going to unimaginable lengths to care for their pets. As The Washington Post reported in March, certain chicken owners have hired “chicken whisperers” to consult on their pets’ comfort (to the tune of $225 per hour).

I grew up on a grain farm, but we did have some livestock. If you think a cat's litter box smells, cleaning out a chicken coop is cruel.

I imagine these chicken owners don't clean the coops themselves. They may even have chicken nannies to change the diapers.

Once upon a time, a scientist invented a substance that would make stone come to life. The first application was on a statue of General Grant in the local municipal park. As the statue stirred and looked around, the scientist asked, "General Grant, are you alive? Can you hear me?"

"Yes," General Grant replied.

"What is the first thing you want to do?"

"Well, first, I'm going to kill me a mess of pigeons."
