    An acquaintance with some excess roosters didn't have the heart to, um, "name them Stew", and asked me to take them. I drove over to her house in my Volkswagen Jetta, and she had eight of them in a big cardboard box. It wouldn't fit in my trunk, so I put it in the back seat.

    Of course they got out on the way home. Picture eight roosters bouncing around like footballs in a Volkswagen, trying to perch on the head rests, trying to fly out the windows, with feathers floating everywhere.

    Of course a cop pulled up behind me as I was on the side of the highway trying to stuff them back in the box. He's probably still laughing.

    Just had rooster stew for lunch. Now I'm going to go clean up feathers.

    Does this sort of thing happen to anyone else?

    Hopefully the cop had his dashboard camera on - you might end up on one of those TV shows!

    It was funny, up until the stew...
    But I've not had that thrill of them getting everywhere...
    Slifer and Obelisk would sit on the back seat or if I stopped to quickly, Slifer would end up on the floor...and she'd hoohooo at me in protest.
