Feliz Cumple!

It’s Chicken Boy’s birthday! The cult-famous, former restaurant statue turns 42 today, according to the U.S. Census Bureau (now do you see why it’s so important you fill out the friggin’ form?). After wishing the cannibalizing effigy a “feliz cumple,” the Census Bureau puts your tax dollars to work disclosing a few random facts about chicken in general, telling us that Georgia leads the way in chicken production, Americans eat 56 pounds of it per year, and that September is national chicken month. In any case, this would be the appropriate time to visit in Highland Park and lay a bottle of corn whiskey at Chicken Boy’s feet. [U.S. Census Bureau/Sacramento Bee]
