So there's a folktale from somewhere (I forget where) that says that animals can speak at midnight on Christmas Eve because they were some of the beings originally present when Jesus was born. If you went out to the coop at midnight tonight, 1) What would your chickens say to you? 2) In what kind of accent would your chickens speak? I'll start! 1) Where is our oatmeal? 2) Hard to say. I think BBC-style British.
