Skinnerbox has not turned out to be a terribly handsome specimen, but there are few of us who couldn’t use a little work, or at least some favorable lighting. I’m thinking she’s a she now, because she loves to eat, while cockerels, on the other hand, live virtually their entire lives like air ferns. Each night, when we stuff her into her lightfast cardboard snooze enclosure, her puffy crop makes me think of the giant titty-themed Manga that has proven such a distraction for so many Japanese men. I’ll probably get a lot of Google searches for “chicken tits” now, in addition to “horse erction” or “friends trapped in sex sling”.
