用三条腿奔跑很快

    One day a traveling salesman was driving down a back country road at about 30 mph when he noticed that there was a three-legged chicken running alongside his car.
    He stepped on the gas but at 50 miles per hour. The chicken was still keeping up. After about a mile of running the chicken ran up a farm lane and into a barn behind an old farm house.
    The salesman had some time to kill so he turned around and drove up the farm lane. He knocked at the door and when the farmer answered he told him what he had just seen.
    The farmer said that he was a geneticist and had developed this breed of chicken because he, his wife and his son each like a drumstick when they have chicken and this way they only have to kill one chicken.
    "That""s the most fantastic thing I"ve ever heard," said the salesman. "How do they taste?"
    "I don"t know," said the farmer. "We"ve never caught one."
    有一天,一个旅行推销员以时速30英里的速度开车去一个小镇子,忽然他发现有一只三条腿的小鸡在他的车旁奔跑。
    他猛踩了一下油门,时速达到了每小时50英里,可是那只小鸡依然没被他的车落下。跑了很久之后,那只小鸡穿过农场的田间小路,最后跑进了农场一间旧房子后面的鸡笼里。
    那个旅行推销员看时间还早,就把车也开进了农场的田间小路。他敲了那间旧房子的门,并把他看到的一切都告诉了来开门的那个农场主。
    农场主告诉旅行推销员,他是一名遗传学者,他培育出这种三条腿的鸡,是因为他和妻子,还有他们的儿子,都喜欢吃鸡腿。培育出这种三条腿的鸡,当他们全家吃鸡的时候,只需要杀死一只鸡,就可以每个人都能吃到一个鸡腿了。
    “这是我听过最奇妙的想法了”,旅行推销员说,“它的味道怎么样?”
    “我不知道,”农场主说,“我一次也没有抓住过。”
