Clucking Mad

Ooooh yet another! So we’re up to number 12 now. Hope you’re all still enjoying them. I’ve had one friend who seems to think I should “try something new”. But I think I’d like to keep going for a while longer yet. Some people have actually suggested that I make a book out of them, I think that would be great! I definately plan on doing something with them, but as to what happens, I’m not sure just yet. Until then, I’m going to keep going until the ideas stop flowing

So here’s another – one of Wonko’s suggestions. I like Oliver muchly but wouldn’t pay a cent to see him “perform”.

NSIE XII : Oliver the Chicken Wrestler

“By day, Oliver was a field officer for the RSPCA and radical vegan, but he lead a seedy double-life by night. Originally he used to wrestle live chickens for money, pinning them to the wrestling ring by their wings until the referee counted to three. Although initially Ollie tried cock-fighting, he viewed being in a ring with an angry rooster, with his trousers down around his ankles, a little too perilous for a middle-aged (but still hopeful) bachelor, so embarked on a poultry-wrangler career instead.

After a visit from an animal rights activist, Oliver responded to pangs of conscience and modified his act to include a partially thawed, organic, humanely retired boiling hen, but could not understand how his audience demographic dwindled overnight, leaving him penniless and facing crippling laundry bills (who would have thought that chicken fat was so stubborn a stain).”

    In a related postscript, Oliver was subsequently arrested on allegations of improper behavior in a public space when he announced a wrestling hold he unfortunately called “choking the chicken”. No charges were ever levelled but his reputation as a manipulator of poultry was never fully vindicated.
