Actually, if I remember correctly Lloyd carried the head around to display with Mike. Some of the pictures on the linked sites show Mike with his head at his feet.smiley - smiley

This is such an obvious wind up. I mean, there's photos of a guy erecting a statue ON APRIL FOOL'S DAY, for crying out loud.

How the hell did this get to be an edited guide entry?

The article is written in such a way as to present the story as fact. The only thing that could possibly point towards it being joke is the obviously fake picture that accompanies it (which incidentally looks nothing like the photos if Mike on the web site). I'm all for a laugh, but this article, endorsed by the editors as it is, could mislead a lot of people into believing that chickens can survive without heads.

By the way, I heard they've removed the word 'gullible' from the dictionary. Anyone know why? smiley - erm

smiley - erm Actually, it is true. Only a portion of Mike's head has removed. His brainstem was left intact, and, afterall, a chicken doesn't have much more than a brainstem under the best of circumstances.

I've read this story before from a different source. (Not that that proves anything of course). But anyway, my reaction now as it was then was ... EEWWERREGGGEEAAEAAAAKKKKKEEEWWWWEWRRRAAAAGGGAAGGGGAHHHHHHUUUUUZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!

::Imagine me pretty much running around the room shaking uncontrollably as if I was covered in spiders!::

True or not, this gives me a major case of the HUZZ! (see above as I do it again!)

This story offends my soul!... I just can't think about it... Ok... I'm trading in all my manliness vouchers

::Runs around the room again::
EEEAAEERWWEWRRRRREEAADAAAOOOOOWWWWWIEEARRRGGGHHHZZZZZ!!!

I'm feeling rather badsmiley - erm I never expected either of the two major reactions the story has prompted ("EEWWERREGGGEEAAEAAAAKKKKKEEEWWWWEWRRRAAAAGGGAAGGGGAHHHHHHUUUUUZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!" and "it's not true!)

I just found it facinating on a few different levels (physiological, sociological, culinary).

I'm sorry to have offended a soulsmiley - winkeye

Oh, don't worry Anhaga... I knew what I was in for! I HAD read about Mike before. I just think I'll need do some lumberjacking and wildcatting this weekend to earn back some of those manliness tokens.

They even tried to convince us the president of atlantis is elected by the people, and not by neptune!"

I'm one of the people who says 'Neato' when they read this. It seems like it's true to me. I don't know how a farmer could have bribed Guiness, Life, Time and a scientist - because he wanted people to think he had a headless chicken that lived.
