“I grilled a chicken for two hours yesterday…” (joke)

“Why did the chicken cross the road?"/"To get to the other side” is a classic riddle from the 19th century. A popular joke variation is:

“I grilled a chicken for two hours yesterday...and it STILL wouldn’t tell me why it crossed the road.”

“Roasted a chicken for three hours today - STILL wouldn’t tell me why it crossed the road” was posted on Twitter on April 22, 2011.
