“Why did Johnny Appleseed cross the road?"/"To get to the other cider!”

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

Q: Why did Johnny Appleseed cross the road?
A: To get to the other cider!


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2014. Amazon Alexa told the joke in 2018.
