Protesting chickens?

I suppose you've heard by now, but there was a tea party here in San Antonio. I didn't go to it, but I was checking out some pictures of the event at the KENS-5 slideshow.

For the most part, it seems that it was a sane, respectable type of protest, and I guess no one got too crazy. There were a lot of American and Texas flags, and most of the signs were pretty much on topic with tax-related gripes of some kind or another.

But, of course, there was a bit of strangeness.

Can you tell me what he's protesting? I honestly don't know. That man had some cages with some chickens in them, and I guess he's upset because some city code is preventing him from keeping the yardbirds. I wouldn't know what it is; I think you can keep at least a couple of chickens in San Antonio yards. But apparently the man is quite upset. And that boy looks hungry.

Other than that, the strangest thing I saw in this set of pictures was this:

Tea anyone?

Strange. I see chickens all over the place when I'm working.

The word verification is "incher."

MINNIE PEARL?!?! You're a 'TEABAGGER'? lol

Our association doesn't allow chickens or roosters, but I continue to hear one every morning - no idea exactly where it is living. Maybe the protester guy needs to move out here.

Heh heh heh. "Incher." You get all the good words.

Seriously, though, Alan's right. There are chickens all over this town. I'm not sure what that guy's gripe is.

And Kels, you said "teabagger." I thought you had to be on CNN to get to say that! :-)

And Dave, I don't think I would worry about that chicken in your 'hood for much longer. After all, you have the chupacabra running around there! It won't be long ...

I'm a moderate... I'm allowed... ;)
