Great Minds Think Alike

by Rebecca Schmitz

The Missoula City Council passed the urban chicken ordinance by a vote of eight to four last night. The usual suspects, Councilmen Reidy, Hendrickson, Wilkins and Nicholson, voted against it. Coincidentally, chicken supporter Mike Jakupcak penned an ode to our feathered friends based on…wait for it…‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.

“The chickens were all huddled outside the city limits in pens / Awaiting the decision to stay put or gather speed, put on mittens and en masse descend,” he read.

I think his version is way better than mine.  Someone needs to get that guy a blog.

  1. he should have stuck to
    a simple haiku for his
    written sentiment.

  2. Chickens and haiku
    are not natural partners
    even for dinner.
