Oh.

The real question is, what causes a shortage of chickens?

It didn't specifically say there was a shortage of chickens (although that probably is the real question).

I was wishfully thinking the chickens weren't coming by because of a shortage of grain. If the supermarket was low on grain, the chickens really wouldn't have any reason to stop by, I would think.

I quite agree, although I've found chickens enjoy fresh produce as well.

Perhaps a shortage of both grain and produce?

I don't know that many chickens, so am not as familiar with their dietary preferences as perhaps I should be. Still, it makes sense that a chicken with a well-balanced diet would like to consume fresh produce.

The supermarket really must have been having a bad day if they were shy of both grain and produce. I hope they get Sunday deliveries.

Having once made the acquaintance of my grandmother's chicken-friends, I realized that an attractive diet for chickens absolutely must include a range of foods, from greens to grain.

Without Sunday deliveries, you may be without avian visitors for quite some time. A truly tragic occurrence...how would you ever cope?

Poultry patronage might come to a grinding halt...chickens might start protesting in the streets.

The horror!

We can only pray that your supermarket rapidly stocks up on chicken-friendly products, lest all-out armageddon strikes.

Maybe the supermarket is trying to appeal to other segments of the population, and this is just a clever way not to accidentally kill of its poultry patrons while trying to test a limited expansion into the racoon and fox market?

Hmm... I'll have to keep an eye out for who else is shopping there next time I do groceries.

I had always thought raccoons preferred outlawry and scavenging to sedate bourgeois shopping...but I suppose that in the current economic climate even such free spirits must make concessions.

Beware of foxes in chickens' clothing.

On a complete tangent and not having your email handy -
I bet you already have plans to go, but a couple of us are going to an afternoon showing of POTC tomorrow afternoon if you want to come.

Oh ack, how I would dearly love to go with you... *weeps*
I fear I am already committed to going with G, but not until next week since the weekend is already tied up.

Be sure to give proper appreciation to Orlando in all his pirate glory for me. :)

Not until next week??

Surely you'll want to see it again...

Oh, okay. I'll try to due justice to the duty you've imposed on me.

I know. *cries* And the advance reviews have been smashing, too. Sadly I must do right by my poor stressed-out sister who is defending her thesis/moving.

*lights a little candle for Pirate!Orlando*
