I Don’t Know When I Will Hypnotize A Chicken, But At Least I Know I Can
Have you ever wanted to HYPNOTIZE A CHICKEN!? I know, it’s like the mere thought of it is an adrenaline rush to your brain and heart from your adrenal glands or something.
The infallible source, Wikipedia, explains;
A chicken can be hypnotized, or put into a trance, by holding its head down against the ground, and continuously drawing a line along the ground with a stick or a finger, starting at its beak and extending straight outward in front of the chicken. If the chicken is hypnotized in this manner, it will remain immobile for somewhere between 15 seconds and 30 minutes, continuing to stare at the line.
Whaaatt!!?!??! NO WAY.
Calm down guy, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be… get it, cracked, chicken, eggs, nevermind.
This may not be clinical hypnosis, but instead a case of tonic immobility. Instead of a hypnotic state, the chicken’s reactions are more akin to a turtle moving into its shell, or a deer freezing from a spotlight ““ a defensive mechanism intended to feign death, albeit poorly.
Stupid fucking chickens, always being so shitty at faking their deaths. Not like that Ryan Dunn fellow. Check this out:
