    Anyone see the episode where the guys test whether or not a frozen
    or thawed chicken would do more damage to an airplane?? Hilarious...

    Unfortunately they didn't use a silkie as a test subject. [​IMG]

    Yes, I've seen the episode and it's hilarious. I also think they revisited this myth at some point and gave it a second go.

    Obviously they are not familiar with silkies because if they were, you know that's what they'd be using. [​IMG]

    Actually, now that I think about it, a silkie would survive it. That black armor
    skin would protect them.

    They do about the same damage. The frozen chicken flies faster but stays solid.
    The unfrozen chicken splatters and gives a different pattern. Just picture it.

    The silkie comes out of the gun screaming "Yehaaa Die Humans Die"

    If they used "purplechickens" they'd do more damage to the plane and all the purple stuff
    that splattered all over everything would obstruct their view as well. LOL
