Topic: Mini rubber chicken (finger flicken good)
Message: Posted by: Josh the Superfluous (Feb 3, 2006 10:00AM)
Attached link goes to a rubber chicken keychain. I got one of these at CVS drugstore in Michigan. It's easily removed from the keychain. It's squishy (but not fully compressible) and it's body (minus neck and legs) is about the size of a baby sponge rabbit. It makes people laugh. It could fit a mini chop cup.

I placed a sponge bunny in my hand, and explained to my wife that it would burst into a ball of fire. When nothing happened I explained that he was chicken (open hand to show chicken).

That's a fowl joke.

Josh, you ARE aware that it is against Café' policy to flip anyone the bird...?

You could be accused of featherbedding, birddogging and linking to fowl sites, too. It could seriously effect your standing in the pecking order around here!

However, I have to admit, the little critter is pretty CHEEP!

;) ;) ;)

Lee Darrow,

This sounds like fun. It would make a wacky final load. Maybe a chicken and the egg routine with a chopped mini egg.

Double lift, I'm sorry. I don't see the extremely bad pun in your post. Could it be that you actually saw my post as a helpful final load suggestion, and not a springboard into a endless rant of chicken puns?

Crayola makes a modeling foam (Model Magic) that could be moulded into an egg like you mentioned. It dries hard but puffed like insulation foam. So it wouldn't talk. Cool idea.

By George I think you've got it!
I was thinking more on the lines of drilling a small egg and inserting those magical chop cup things and healing the eggs up. I think it could be a very funny
"Which came first, the Chicken or the Egg" routine. Can we claim origination of the idea here and now?

Oooo! Doublelift,

Maybe use a little chopped woven basket for the cup.

How about a second final load of a small container of chickensoup? Lots of patter to explore. Ditch the eggs and switch the rubber chicken for a pile of plastic bones from a toy skeleton? Just a little brainstorming it could be something fun.

The Chicken Chop Basket
"Boneless kid's version"
(A $675.00 value)

Here I have a little basket and a little egg. If I place the basket on my hand, and the egg in my pocket, and crow like this "COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!" the egg appears under the basket. I'll show you again. The egg goes in my pocket, and if I don't crow it stays right there. But If do "COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!" the egg appears under the basket. Now I don't normally do this, but the secret is so incredible, I just have to tell you how it's done. Mildred the magic chicken is hiding in the basket. Whenever I take the egg, and put it in my pocket like this, and crow "COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!", Mildred lays another egg like this. Here you try it this time. The egg goes in my pocket and now crow like this "COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!"

Kid: "COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!"

Very good. Now if we did this right we'd have..uh..um (revealing chicken) MILDRED! MY GOSH! What happened to you!?! (Holds chicken to ear) Oh I see... She heard us both crowing and thought it was time for the big ending. (Lift basket to show full sized egg, the same size or larger than the basket)



I'm thinking the basket could either be woven with wire at the bottom or lined with a red checked fabric. Has anyone done this before? (Bill?)

Have anyone read Floyd Collins book, "Chicken Scratches." It explains many routines that can be presented with a rubber chicken from stand-up to close-up. I enjoy reading this book. It made me get my rubber chicken out the closet and dust it off so I could start using it in my shows.
