A farmer is sitting around watching TV and wonders out loud who the Democrats will select to run for President. His chicken looks at him and goes, “BARRAAACK.”

Days later, Obama gets the nomination.

A couple of months later the farmer is sitting around watching TV and wonders out loud who will be elected President. His chicken looks at him again and goes, “BARRAAACK.”

Soon after, Obama wins the Presidency.

A few months after that the farmer’s back is hurting and he is griping out loud about the need for health care reform. His chicken looks at him and goes “BARRAAACK.”

Sure enough, a month later Obama is talking about fixing health care.

The farmer looks at his chicken and starts thinking that his chicken can tell the future. So he grabs the chicken and jumps in his truck and heads for Washington D.C.

He drives up to the White House gates and tells the Secret Service agent that he has a chicken that can tell the future. The Secret Service guy is doubtful but gives the chicken a chance and asks the chicken who is going to call next. The chicken looks at him and goes “BARRAAACK” and then the phone rings and amazingly it’s Obama calling to tell the agent that his daughter has a friend coming over so let her in.

The Secret Service guy takes the farmer and the chicken to the Oval Office and interrupts the President’s meeting with the Joint Chiefs. “Mr. President, this chicken can tell the future.”, he says.

The Joint Chiefs scoff but finally the Air Force general asks the chicken what he will name is next child? The chicken looks at him and goes “BARRAAACK.” The general exclaims, “But we don’t even know if it’s going to be a boy or a girl!” About that time he gets a text messages that says “It’s a boy.”

The Navy Admiral stands up and says what are we going to name the new carrier?” The chicken looks at him and goes “BARRAAACK.” Immediately and aide comes in a hands him a piece of paper that says, “Navy has decided to name the new carrier after President.”

Amazed at the chicken’s prophetic abilities the President asks the chicken, “Who will be remembered as the greatest US President.” The chicken looks at him and begins pecking on the floor. Finally someone realizes it is Morse Code. They Joint Chiefs find a translator and bring him to the Oval Office. The chicken looks at the guy and starts pecking the floor again.

The guy writes out the message and hands it to the President.

It reads, “Hey! I’m just a chicken, McCain taught me Morse Code.”
