A chicken has been warned about its cavalier behavior after it was almost the cause of a road accident on a country road on the outskirts of Battambang yesterday evening.
The chicken, a scraggy, skinny black thing, thoughtlessly ran out into the road directly into the path of an oncoming motorcycle, causing the rider of the vehicle to take evasive action by swerving violently, and its passenger to react vocally by saying:
"Fuckinell, yacunt! Ah'll wring y'fuckineck!"
The incident was witnessed by several other motorcyclists who, seemingly, took it with a degree of calm. One said:
"They're always doing that, them chickens."
Life was going on as normal this morning.
