ക Why Ask Why¿ (7) Chirpy Chirpy 雞雞 Cheep Cheep


Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? Alphabetically it goes without saying chicken arrives earlier than egg. We can debate on this dilemma based on Mathematics, Evolution or Theology until the cows chickens come home and yet not a single egg would be hatched. Facts gathered from Wikipedia says the chicken (scientific name: Gallus gallus domesticus) is a domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the Red Junglefowl. One of the most common and widespread domestic animals, with a population of more than 70 billion being killed annually and there are more chickens in the world than any other species of bird as compared to the world human population of adding one birth every second with this counter as at time of posting is 6,868,443,783.

It has been quite some years back a lot of people got caught on with this chicken riddle "Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?" The public unanimously agreed to this sort after tagline ~ 'to get to the other side'. You can find 1001 creative, weird and brilliant answers from the internet [here]. Bananaz just thought of two in relation to the airline industry and horror movie and have picked three more from the internet for sharing:

The Chickens crossed the road to watch a horror movie
Air Asia : Now Every Chicken Can Fly..no need to cross any roads anymore.

Bill Gates: I have just released the new Chicken Office 2010, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, balance your checkbook and eat your neighbor.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: I have a dream! I have a dream of a day, when ALL chickens can cross ALL roads without having their motives called into question

Hamlet: To cross, or not to cross, that is the question: -



Why Ask Why¿ (7) : Chicken = Prostitute ¿
Chicken in Mandarin/Chinese is pronounced as jī 雞 with the same homophone pronounced as jì 妓 [prostitute]. This slang "chicken" as " prostitute" is commonly known and widely used among the Chinese community. What a name? Opposite slang for gigolo is accepted as 鴨 yā [duck]. Oh me oh my we are into chicken and duck talk now. Just be careful with your conversation that could be disastrous like this scenario Bananaz and gang encountered during lunch. The owner of the chicken rice stall brought over the food to our table and asked "Who called chicken?" and all of us with eyes popped out and jaws opened. It literally means who called for a prostitute? Gosh and the one who ordered the chicken rice was a lady colleague. If he had added 'chicken rice' then its lunch.

To add on to another story a true Banana [English educated] who studied in overseas for a very long time came home for a holiday and wanted chicken breast 雞胸 for his chicken rice. Requested the bozz in direct Cantonese translation 'gai nin' which is 'chicken boobs' instead of saying 'gai hung'. o.Oppps! You would expect the worst if the hawker bozz is a fierce lady.. 

Wishing all Hindu readers A Happy & Blessed Thaipusam தைப்பூசம் ~Vel Vel Shakti Vel~[20Jan2011]. Click [here] or pix below for the song 'Muruga Muruga'.

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE said...

Lily Riani said...

horse and chicken... ehmmmm....

i studied chinese since kindy till form 5, and i NEVER KNEW that is why pros is called chicken till todate 19jan2011, and today too i found out how to write pros. ahhahaha

very educational.

[SK] said...

Bananaz suddenly is so obsessed with chicken today?? errr, the coming new year is the year of rabbit woh.. why talk about chicken and not rabbit?? :D

[SK] said...

so chicken first or egg first?? nah, there is never a definite answer for this.. but to me, egg first because according to the Evolution Theory, all living things started from cell.. and the egg is just a huge cell.. that is why i believe egg comes first before chicken..

[SK] said...

hahahaha, i like that "gai nin"!! so funny.. so how did the bozz reacted?? btw, i actually love chicken breast the most, everytime i go KFC or chicken rice, i sure specifically order for chicken breast..

Alice Law said...

Ohhh... I believe everything starts with egg!^-^

wenn said...

ya..gai nin sounds weird :)

Tekkaus said...

Logically....it should always be chicken. :p

Isaac Tan said...

who called chicken???
hahaha.

by right the chicken would have come first, cause God did create all living beings, he created man, woman, and all the animals with them.

Pete said...

Why did the rabbit cross the road?.....Rabbit year mah! ha ha ha!

bluedreamer27 said...

haha the undying arguments about the egg and the chicken

bluedreamer27 said...

hahaha its so chickenny here haha... now i'm starting to crave for Max's and KFC's

bluedreamer27 said...

Chicken part.... i love the chicken thigh part and the chicken feet as well...

suituapui said...

...and old mother hen (lau kay bo - old female chicken) is an over-the-hill prostitute...usually the "mummy". LOL!!!

I don't like breasts and not into feet either, don't mind the thighs... Muahahaha!!!

suituapui said...

P.S. Wah..Isaac, amen to that! LOL!!!

Caroline Ng May Ling said...

whoaa! all about chicken! LOL! gosh so funny la this post! :p

Wai Kitt said...

Never heard of "gai nin" before,very funny of you!

reanaclaire said...

Yes, we always laugh when they asked, who called chicken.. who kiew kai.. hahahaa.. if got "farn".. then not so bad..

Bananazஇ said...

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE இ If gallous x 2 then it very bad haha/

Lily Riani இ You're Chinese ed how nice how I wished I'm not English ed. Have to learn Chinese now the hard and hearsay way. Its a homophone jī vz jì, the full word would be 妓女 jìnǚ.

[SK] இ All becoz of STP's Bishop's nose that slipped on the peel and bumped into chicken haha. Lucky we have got Rabbit here but in Vietnam no rabbit year but cat year instead, so small kucing can go Vietnam to celebrate CNY this year.

Bananazஇ said...

[SK] இ Would not want to spin the issue here egg is first or chicken as ah kong got ah kong right, ah ma got ah ma right. Aha Bananaz like gai nin too gimme 5. Oh the guy got help from friend to clarify the gai nin matter that bozz merely puzzled. Sometimes I would also like to play the joke on chicken rice seller and see his/her reaction. How about you ask for gai nin next time you order chicken rice? Warning: make sure his/her hand not holding the meat cleaver.

Alice Law இ No chicken where got egg hahahaha..

wenn இ for English woman breast or chicken breast it sounds OK.. agree with you gai nin would gives us the impression its referring to lady's boobs. lolz

Alice Law said...

It's possible since it's less complicated to form eggs than the chicken itself! Unicellular mutation... perhaps?!

Bananazஇ said...

Tekkaus இ Oh you based on logic chicken is first dunno leh, a mystery unsolved yet. Score Egg/Chick 2:1

Isaac Tan இ Pin khor kiew gai? haha So chicken first! Score Egg/Chick 2:2

Pete இ Yeah have not thought of Rabbit haha.

Bananazஇ said...

bluedreamer 27 இ got such word chickenny? haha You can start a shop named 'Chickenny Loggers' to sell chicken feet. Btw since you like the feet how's your writing? Old folks here said if eat too much chicken feet your writing will be like fowl's scratching how true? Think doctors ate too much chicken feet cant read their writings lolz

suituapui இ haha yeah lau kay bo aka mummy. Read somewhere in BM its ibu ayam. Love chicken feet with mushroom 'tunku mung gai keok'

Caroline இ Very chickenny as said by bluedreamer lolz

Bananazஇ said...

Wai Kitt இ haha chicken boobs! Have thought of putting a bra on a chicken in this entry to highlight gai nin. lolz

reanaclaire இ ping kor kiew gai? haha! Nowadays hawkers also want to keep up with the style of sms, shorten the usage of words to save time.

Bengbeng said...

Cindy said...

Hahaha... funny post about chicken!

Autumn Belle said...

Hah? It is only today that I learnt that the word chicken comes from the word pros as in 'ji'. Once upon a time, I asked my grandma why are pros called chicken, she replied, "it is because they are paraded for you to select which one you like, just like buying chicken from the market" I also wonder how a lady chick means 'young, hot and pretty' and she may not be a pros, but chick for men would = coward. Now, can I offer you some chickadees or chickpeas as snacks?

Bananazஇ said...

Cindy இ tQ for dropping by more chicken & duck to come in future post haha.

Autumn Belle இ Grandma got her version to explain. Why Ask Why yeah why young chick for pretty hot chick with skirt? May have to go and dig more info. Serious about the chickadees want both..here's my address...lolz.
