            Laying eggs all your life and then getting stuffed and roasted is good enough for some people.

              I wonder how Rocky got from having his choice of pretty much anyone but Ginger to bunk with, to having to shack up with Fowler. Maybe Ginger ixnayed it?

                    Which *did* come first? The chicken or the egg? I think the poor rats, anyway, are thoroughly confused on the subject.

                        I love the very long pause between when Fetcher asks Nick if he wants to dance and Nick says "Yeah, all right", after looking at Fetcher like he was crazy while screwing in a light bulb.

                          I'd never seen a Toblerone-style candy prior to this movie. Now the store I work at carries them, and whenever I see them I always think, "Chocs away!"

                            I love how Mrs. Tweedy says "I'm sick and tired of making minuscule profits" and then her eyes immediately happen upon an advertisement that asks, "Sick and tired of making minuscule profits?"

                              In the scene in which Babs worries she's about to be taken to the chop and she clasps her hands in prayer as she feels Mrs. Tweedy grabbing her, I like how you actually hear a chorus, as if they're the voices of angels.

                                  A paint roller mounted onto a chicken coop can support the weight of a full-grown human.

                                                  You can spend days building a food processing machine and still not know what it actually does.
