According to a report in Sioux Falls Argus Leader, "Residents will need a license to own more than six chickens in the city limit." This article was directly above the help wanted ad for "Municipal Chicken Counters, no experience necessary."
It may be a reform that is long past due. Perhaps the city of Sioux Falls is about to be buried alive under domestic chickens. There are so many good reasons for this sort of legislation.
Often, though, these laws, good intentioned though they may be, have unforeseen consequences. What is going to happen to the 7th and 8th chickens in the yard of the Smiths on 9th street? Here is a picture taken outside of a convenience store. Clearly, this is not what the cautious and careful members of the Sioux Falls City Council had in mind while considering this law.
But, the chicken is out of the bag now, and a terrified nation can only hope that it gets straightened out before tourist season is completely ruined.
Please, elected officials, legislate with care, the trusting citizens of this nation depend on your Solomon like wisdom.

There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
