  • A chicken-hearted way to tell her you no longer care.
Unreal was at a local Schnucks the other day picking up some Oreo Double Stufs when we heard the most unusual exchange in the checkout lane.

Ahead of us in line was a ZZ Top look-a-like in a biker jacket with a rhinestone patch that read: "If You Can Read This, The Bitch Fell Off". The gentleman was buying two whole Pilgrim's Pride chickens and nothing else.

Seeing his groceries on the counter the cheerful cashier inquired: "Hmm are you doing the cooking tonight?"

"No," replied the biker. "I'm cutting the hearts out 'em and giving them to my ex-wife, just as she did to me." 

The look on his face made it clear he wasn't messing around. We can only assume he's not a great cook.
