how many times have you heard the worlds most cliche joke

Why did the chicken cross the road? to get to the other side.

but check this out there's actually a much deeper meaning to this. Crossing the road was an act of suicide. Death, the afterlife, is the real "other side".
You will never hear that joke the same way again.

thanx to whoever (i dont remember) pointed this out to me.

whoa, i have never thought of it that way, and now it makes so much sense, and btw, you downvoting that ally 420 girl for making up stories to get popular highdeas makes me happy also

Here's the original highdea.
Look! I commented first.
I knew about this highdea before it went mainstream.
Hipster status achieved.
Y'all should upvote the original highdea too, give OP some credit.

in the spirit in saving the classic joke as we know it what about the fact that the joke never says the chicken gets hit by a car or for any reason doesn't make it across safely. So maybe he did purely just want to get across that street. Amen chicken! Amen!
