I had wondered why there was oil splashed all around the shop - but I never made the connection between the lost chicken and the oil mess.

But that's not even the funny part, it's how I found it that makes me laugh.

Several weeks later I brought my oil to the town dump (in the next town over where I'm not even supposed to be going)

It's a transfer station - they're VERY strict there, but the guy let me go in and dump the oil into their drums - they have a one gallon limit -I had five. So I was being extra nice.

So I'm in a strange dump with an illegaly borrowed sticker - dumping more oil them I'm supposed to be dumping - I'm already on pretty shakey ground.

All of a sudden PLOP -

A huge mass falls into the funnel - BLOCKING the funnel and causing LOTS of oil to backup up all over the floor.

NOW I can add environmental disaster AND safety hazard to the list of things I'm doing wrong.

Thankfully the dump-nazi had his back turned for a moment.

I picked out the clump thinking it must have been a balled up t-shirt I had used as a rag...

Then I saw two curled up chicken feet and it all came together for me.

I looked over at the guy - thank god he still had his back turned, so I without even thinking I tossed the chicken on top of the nearest trashpile and completed dumping out the rest of the oil before he could see.

Out of the corner of my eye I could see the chicken roll down the pile and out onto the floor.

It just lay there like a big oily chicken. There was no hiding it.

I figured I better not call attention to it so I just left it there, and got out as fast as I could.

I think I'm done using their facility for a while.
