The Funky Chicken

The other night, our dear friend Tynan (and husband to The Goddess Elena) was expounding on the history of the microwave. I have no idea why. After he's had a beer or two, Tynan tends to expound on things. Unfortunately, San Geraldo (and most of the local population) has a difficult time understanding that Chesterfield accent — even when Tynan hasn't had a beer or two.

"I remember our first microwave in the late '70s," Tynan said. "The adverts actually claimed that you can roast a chicken in the cooker."

San Geraldo: "There's a band called 'Chicken in the Fucker'?!?"


Either way, that would be one funky chicken...

  6. Back in the day, my funky chicken rendition turned many people into vegetarians and some people stopped eating altogether. I don't dance much anymore.

  7. I' still waiting for the internet to come up with the Funky Chicken (damned service here!!!!)... but can remember well when the ex-husband tried to bake a (wild) duck in our first microwave... pretty much like shoe leather..... duck jerky? While I'm waiting for this damned internet to work, I remember a high school class reunion where everyone kind of got in a congo line and strutted around the room flapping their arms and making clucking noises.... hey... I think we were all drinkers even way back then. Hope that thing comes up soon... my imagination is going crazy.

      Although I did the Funky Chicken, I would never do the chicken noises.

      Jerry and Tynan are a very entertaining combination. In Tynan's defense, however, I understand most of what he says!
