2018-05-18 Friday Humor (What's for dinner)

Have a terrific weekend and be blessed:

 

Scientists at NASA have developed a gun built specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners, military jets and the space shuttle, all traveling at maximum velocity. The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.

British engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new high speed trains. Arrangements were made, and when the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurtled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, crashed through the control console, snapped the engineer's backrest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin.

Horrified Britons sent NASA the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield, and begged the U.S. scientists for suggestions. NASA's response was just one sentence, "THAW THE CHICKEN!"

Techy response

The Chicken gun was invented in the UK - So the joke is normally the other way around ie the Brits sent "Thaw the chicken" message

Makes one wonder how that could have been changed.  😕

Not "For dinner" but that does remind me of the following mythical "incident"
