Why did the chicken cross the road

So why did the chicken cross the road?

 

Peter Shaw came across some interesting answers to that question.......

 

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don’t really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.

 

OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I’m going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

 

DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I’ve not been told.

 

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.

 

GRANDPA: In my day we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

 

DONALD TRUMP: We should build a wall so the chicken can’t cross the road.

 

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

 

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

 

COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?

 

JOHN KEY: The chicken crossed the road to play a game of golf with Barak Obama.

 

QUEEN ELIZABETH 2: My husband and I believe the chicken crossed the road to make friends with a corgi.

Responding to the Refugee Crisis

The current refugee crisis has been described as the worst for almost a quarter of a century.

United Nations spokesperson Stephane Dujarric says “It’s true we live in a moment in history where there’s never been a greater need for humanitarian aid since the United Nations was founded”. 

Where can you donate and what can you do to help?

Below is a list of agencies already supporting refugees:

Red Cross 

World Vision

TEARFund

Oxfam

International Rescue Committee

Save The Children

Barnabas

Medair

You can also volunteer, The Red Cross need volunteers to help refugees settle in New Zealand, and the Auckland Refugee Council also has a volunteer programme.

You can help by providing employment. Work and Income want to hear from people who have an idea for a project that could help get migrants and refugees into work.
