“Why did the rabbit cross the road?"/"Because the chicken had his Easter eggs!”

An Easter version of the “Why did the chicken cross the road?” riddle is:

Q: Why did the rabbit cross the road?
A: Because the chicken had his Easter eggs!


The joke was printed in many newspapers in 1993.

“Why did Jesus cross the road?"/"Because he was nailed to the chicken” is a similar Easter riddle.
