I'd forgotten how into it little boys get....
and some of them never get over it as they grow older... but this particular prank is relatively amusing. and (no fooling!) there's a really fun and educational explanation of what this is all about on a blog called Chickens Don't Have Armpits. i'm not kidding!! :) (they really don't - being as how chickens don't have arms...)
and by the way - if you read my 3:00am musings - bless you. that was long and journal-y. :) i'm still tracking with what i said, but i'm pretty sure most of it was only 5/7ths of a complete thought... :)
