Riddle: Why did the chicken cross the road?

“Why did the chicken cross the road?” is a common riddle joke with various answers. The most famous answer to this question is “To get to the other side”. It is an example of anti-humor, in that the curious setup of the joke leads the listener to expect a traditional punchline, but they are instead given a simple statement of fact. However, our answer here is a bit more tricky and hard to come up with.


Why would you cross the road? To get to work or go to school, right? What do you do when you go to school? You “take” lessons. So probably, the chicken has an algebra class at 8 in the morning so it had to cross the road… Just like you!

Answer: it was taking a lesson
