It’s the 51st anniversary of the end of natural law.

51 years ago today marks the would be death of Mike the Headless chicken.  So named was Mike because today 51 years ago Mike was decapitated and then LIVED 18 MONTHS.  Apparently Mike’s owner went to kill the bird for supper and didn’t quite get all of the brainstem.  When it was still alive the next morning, he decided to keep it alive, feed it with an eyedropper and charge 25 cents to see him.  Ironically, the chicken without a neck died of choking.

If you’re ever in Fruita, CO in late May, stop by the Mike the Headless Chicken Festival for some pin the head on the chicken.

I’m all freaked out now.  Have a nice day.
