Grandmothers Knit Sweaters for Chickens

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Residents of a Massachusetts retirement home knitted sweaters for the chilly chickens living on a nearby estate -- and their owners say egg production is up."


You`re a young child and you rip open grandma`s large Christmas package with eagerness and anticipation only to discover a sweater that she lovingly knitted for you.

For the rest of your life you dream about suffocating the old hag with her sweater or poking out her eyes with a knitting needle, rendering her incapable of knitting any more sweaters.

For eons grandmothers have been knitting sweaters for their loved ones, and for eons we`ve been ignoring those sweaters, wearing them only when she comes to visit.

Let`s pray and hope that this grandmas knitting sweaters for chickens thing catches on, and henceforth they will only knit sweaters for critters that appreciate their handiwork.
