On fondling dead chickens...

I'm preparing a chicken to roast. Rinsing it off, my hand is on the breast and I'm thinking, "Gee, that's the most action I've gotten in a while."

When I suddenly dawns on me...the part down where the legs are tied up. Where the gizzards would be if this roaster included gizzards...that's the rear end.

Don't ask me why, since childhood I always just thought that was the neck end. I guess I just thought that when was I like six or whatever and watching my dad cook a turkey and somehow the anatomy of where the legs and wings and all never seemed right but I never actually tried to figure it out.

Having made that realization I held up (continued to fondle?) the chicken with my hand as if it was walking and everything sure made anatomical sense finally!
