Is there some B? Or is there another significance to this A?

And welcome to the forum, Mosquito :)

Umm....

Q. Why did the chicken jay walk across the road?

Very well done, Lynne; sorry not to challenge you more; it was my first attempt.

*******Spoiler*******

A recent news story:

Chicken fined for crossing road

A chicken fined for crossing the road has walked free from court in the US after a judge threw out the charge.

Ophelia, a black Polish hen, earned her owners a £30 fine for illegally walking across the street in California.

California state law bans livestock from highways but not domestic pets.

But lawyers for Ophelia's owners Linc and Helena Moore successfully argued that Ophelia was domesticated and could not be charged as livestock - and the case was dismissed.

The Moores had been fined after their chicken wandered onto a road in the small rural mining town of Johannesburg in Kern county.

You're kidding???? That was was just a joke on my part

Sorry to spoil it so soon!! But a fun puzzle! I was all set to offer lots of silly scenarios. Perhaps an early closure was fortuitous. :)

This seems to put a whole new complexion on the age old question. It may be a serious business after all.

It seems that in the case of an undomesticated chicken, if he crossed the road, then'd better have a pretty good reason for it!

A £30 fine? In California? Well, I guess they may not yet have worked out in Berkeley who won the War of Independence.

Or perhaps...
