Punitive Measures

“Wow,” sighed Detective Yarborough. “The most popular fast-food mascot in history is dead.”

“My kids adored Chevy Chicken,” noted Sergeant Jones.

“So what happened?”

“Chevy Chicken’s producer, Mr. Potts, walked in to find his marketing creation with his wife.”


“She was on her knees handling his nuggets.”

“Haha,” groaned Yarborough.

Jones chortled, “Apparently, she liked to eat co…”

“I realize you’re enjoying yourself,” interrupted Yarborough. “Let’s just stick with the facts, okay?”

“Okay. Potts hated seeing his chicken with his wife. A struggle ensued. Bruises were found on the victim’s neck.”


“Mr. Potts choked his chicken, while his wife watched.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  8. Chevy Chicken on his knees….must have been the “head” chicken, no?
    Wound up in the soup, so to speak.
    Didn’t know his beak from a pecker, eh?
    You could say that parts of the chicken was in parts of the Potts.
    I’m willing to bet that Mr. Potts next creation will frankly not be a “FRANK ‘n stein”; no telling where his hot dog might end up.
    Oh, glorious story. I could crow about this all day.

    Okay this was bad but totally hilarious. I’m a fan of puns- the bigger the groan, the better. Um, perhaps this isn’t the best post to admit that size matters ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. The puns seem to be racing around thick and fast in these stories. I never knew you could get so many stories from one chicken, or so many puns. Well written, Eric. ๐Ÿ™‚ — Suzanne
