Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?


Oh, the things that we find online…


Hamlet: That is not the question.

Ernest Hemingway: To die. In the rain.

Plato: For the greater good.

Karl Marx: It was a historical inevitability.

Machiavelli: So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely chicken’s dominion maintained.

Nietzsche: Because if you gaze too long across the Road, the Road gazes also across you.

Albert Einstein: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.

Aristotle: To actualize its potential.

Darwin: It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees.

Emily Dickinson: Because it could not stop for death.

Epicurus: For fun.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: It didn’t cross the road; it transcended it.

Johann von Goethe: The eternal hen-principle made it do it.

Henry David Thoreau: To live deliberately … and suck all the marrow out of life.

Blake: To see heaven in a wild fowl.

Othello: Jealousy.

Oscar Wilde: Why, indeed? One’s social engagements whilst in town ought never expose one to such barbarous inconvenience – although, perhaps, if one must cross a road, one may do far worse than to cross it as the chicken in question.

Kafka: Hardly the most urgent enquiry to make of a low-grade insurance clerk who woke up that morning as a hen.

Swift: It is, of course, inevitable that such a loathsome, filth-ridden and degraded creature as Man should assume to question the actions of one in all respects his superior.

Macbeth: To have turned back were as tedious as to go o’er.

Mark Twain: The news of its crossing has been greatly exaggerated.

Buddha: If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken-nature.



Fan girl moment with the bisrock icon, har har!

Ladies and gentlemen, here’s a rare treat! The guy-in-shirt-and-rugged-jeans looked decent for an occasion and it’s not his wedding.

The permanent roommate was invited to be one of the judges at the 32nd Cebu Popular Music Festival. Since it’s the highlight of his musical career (as how he puts it), we made every preparation possible. From getting the right fit of slacks, the best pair of shoes, and a stand-out barong from Harley Ruedas to plans of changing his hairstyle but decided to leave it as it is. The rock star image can always justify the unkempt hair.


Where have all the adrenaline gone?

MOA EYE: Giant Ferris Wheel
SM Mall of Asia, January 2011

They say it’s the tallest and biggest ferris wheel in the Philippines. Too bad, I wasn’t able to experience it due to the loooong queue. Well, whaddaya know, it was the January 1st crowd. My last memorable ferris wheel experience was in Enchanted Kingdom (2000). There’s the fresh air from the top, a view of the whole Sta. Rosa Laguna, and that crazy, crazy idea of jumping out of the gondola.


xmas party 23

I said in a previous post that I enjoy the company of guys over girls. BUT this one is an exemption. There’s nothing I can do, I spent 4 years of my college life with this loud ladies and A GUY, straight guy.

Ladies with an appetite of a construction worker’s.
Ladies who don’t mind being caught by the camera at their most unpleasant angles.
And ladies who act like kids when they’re together.

From classrooms to big productions, to meetings and calling cards. From stage plays to life — cheers, Bamkwan!



When "Yours Forever" sounds overly cheesy.

It all started with that little boy on TV. It was a Holy Week marathon and all we did was cry copious tears. We didn’t had any plans so we stayed home, watched that primetime TV series rerun, took a bath at 10PM, and drink all the beer deposit in the household. That cycle lasted for three days. We know, we can get that boring.

But look what we have here…

Fist pound, partner!
