Play Tic Tac Toe with a DEAD CHICKEN!!

leave a comment »

The Buffalo Thunder Resort near Santa Fe is currently running a promotion to play tic tac toe with a live chicken. I really don’t think this is all that challenging – I mean, it’s not like the chicken can employ a whole lot of strategy (presumably). This is, after all, an animal that can drown if it looks at the sky while it’s raining.

Is it really fair for a chicken to be playing a game in which it cannot really know the stakes? Can the CHICKEN collect $50 if it wins? (And, more importantly, should the human against which it’s playing have to give the chicken $50 of his or her own money if the chicken wins? I mean, the person just lost a game of wits to a chicken.)

And why need there be specification of the fact that this is a “LIVE CHICKEN?” Are we to assume that if we see a billboard that says, “Play Tic Tac Toe with a CHICKEN,” that it could also mean a digitally-created chicken? A Robot Chicken? A DEAD CHICKEN?
