“I have a chicken-proof lawn. It’s impeccable”

A lawn joke is:

“I have a chicken-proof lawn. It’s impeccable.

English writer and comedian Tim Vine told the joke in 2012.

Wikipedia: Tim Vine
Timothy Mark “Tim” Vine (born 4 March 1967) is an English writer, actor, comedian and presenter, known for his quick-fire puns and his role on the BBC series Not Going Out until his departure in 2012. He has released a number of DVDs of his stand-up comedy and has written several joke books. In 2010 and 2014, Vine won the award for best joke at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. His winning jokes were: “I’ve just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I’ll tell you what, never again” and “I decided to sell my Hoover ... well it was just collecting dust.” He was the runner up in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

The world’s fastest joke-teller hit the ground running in Telford last night with a barrage of one-liners that had the sell-out audience in stitches from the start.

“I’ve got a new chicken-proof lawn . . . it’s impeccable. My chicken lost her eggs . . . she’s probably just mislaid them.”

Like the church pastor from Lowestoft stuck in drainpipe jeans in a changing room, he had to manoeuvre from some tight spots but in the end the show - like his chicken proof lawn - was impeccable.
