We’ve all heard those ‘why did the chicken cross the road’ jokes one too many times, but it certainly isn’t every day that we actually see this play out in real life.
On Tuesday (4 Jan), a TikToker shared a video of a chicken making its way across a pedestrian crossing along Neil Road in Outram Park.
Like a true law-abiding Singapore citizen, the chicken even waited for the green man before crossing with the other pedestrians.
The clip showing the adorable encounter tickled many netizens and has garnered over 100,000 views at the time of writing.
On Tuesday (4 Jan), a TikToker who goes by the handle @aloysiustay8 shared a video of the chicken along Neil Road. The video caption read, “have you seen a chicken use a pedestrian crossing?”.
At the start of the video, the chicken was seen waiting patiently at the traffic light junction next to a man.
When it came the time to cross the road, the chicken slowly moved off along with the other pedestrians.
But the chicken did face some struggles. When the green man light was blinking, it still had not made it across.
As if it knew the traffic rules, the chicken started sprinting to the other end of the road when the pedestrian light turned red.
Some curious pedestrians even turned back to look at the chicken, hoping it made it across safely.
Fortunately, the chicken eventually made it to the other side safe and sound and was seen happily hopping about.
Seeing the chicken cross the road, netizens were visibly amused, some saying even the chicken knew to follow the rules.
Others just had to bust out that age-old joke, which some netizens gladly participated in.
This netizen shared that chickens would also jaywalk at a nearby junction from time to time. He continued that they probably learned how to do so by observing their hooman counterparts.
It is certainly amusing to witness a chicken crossing a road, let alone one that obeys our traffic rules as well.
Safe to say, it appears these creatures have also learned our ways over time.
