Instead I will just wish everyone good luck with their own resolutions and resume my Laocoonian posture of wrestling with the serpent of sloth, aided by my two sons, Ambition and Fun.

Nice

It may not exactly be a resolution but yesterday on KIRO he did promise to eat a live chicken if the new album doesn't come out in 2011.

Consider it recorded, stamped and sealed.
Record or live chicken it is!

I'm from NY, and my resolution, is to simply make it...

God, the poor bird.

Should we have a sub-pool about what breed it'll be?

Excellent idea, although I have no idea what kinds of breed are available in and around Seattle...?

I'd bet on a bantam silkie...

but I'd love to see some action with a Transylvanian naked neck:

Think we can get some odds going?

Oh, and Moni - it's a major metropolitan city that's also a hub for the whole permaculture/granola-making/backyard chicken subculture. One could probably find any breed one wanted without too much trouble.

Most are probably Plymouth rock, Rhode Island red,white leghorn and... oh, there's one other popular "vanilla" chicken. Oh, and Ameraucaunas. No one can resist them - green eggshells.

Here's a resource, if you really want to get a pool going: http://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/v ... ?id=351652

The initials in people's sigs are breeds:

RIR = Rhode Island red
BO = Buff Orpington
BR = Barred rock (I think) (It's a Plymouth rock with a common "barred" feather pattern)
OEGB = Old English game bantam
EE = "Easter egg" chicken (a cross breed between parents who lay different colored eggs)
FBCM = French black copper Maran (chocolate-brown eggs).
RSL = Red sex-link
BSL = Black sex-link (best breed name ever)

(I had to look up at least three of those.)

The other common breeds seem to be:

Silkie
Cochin
Australorp (a hybrid)
Wyandotte
Faverolle
Golden comet
Sussex
Jersey giant (a long shot if I ever heard one)
Brahma
Welsummer
Serama (a very small breed - good bet, again)

Oh, and "bantam" refers to size - they're about 2/3rds the size of a normal chicken, so a safer bet for live eating.

I do think we could make a table with those breeds and start making some odds.

Those breeds kinda sound like they could be a list of baseball players' names. I was notoriously bad at the board's baseball thingie back in the day, so I'm assuming I will end last on this.
Which suits me fine. Bring it on.

Unfortunately, we can't make brackets, since there's only one thing - John Roderick eating a live chicken.

What we can have are odds.

So here's a chart of possible outcomes with my suggested odds:

John eats a...

  • COOKED (any breed, already prepared) - 1/1
  • COOKED (any breed, slaughtered in sight) - 2/1
  • BANTAM (any breed) - 3/1
  • SERAMA - 3/1
  • RHODE ISLAND RED - 4/1
  • BARRED ROCK - 4/1
  • SILKIE - 5/1
  • COCHIN - 5/1
  • WYANDOTTE - 5/1
  • FAVEROLLE - 5/1
  • PLYMOUTH ROCK (Non-barred) - 5/1
  • PIGEON - 5/1
  • BUFF ORPINGTON - 5/1
  • GOLDEN COMET - 5/1
  • SUSSEX - 5/1
  • WELSUMMER - 6/1
  • MARAN - 6/1
  • ORPINGTON (Non-buff) - 6/1
  • SEX-LINK (Red) - 6/1
  • EASTER EGG - 6/1
  • AMERAUCANA - 7/1
  • SEX-LINK (Black) - 7/1
  • LEGHORN - 7/1
  • BRAHMA - 7/1
  • GUINEA FOWL - 9/1
  • JERSEY GIANT - 10/1
  • TRANSYLVANIAN NAKED NECK - 12/1
  • TURKEY - 14/1
  • GAME COCK - 14/1
  • PEAHEN - 15/1
  • PEACOCK - 20/1

(ALL NON-COOKED LISTINGS ASSUMED TO BE LIVE)
If we wanting this to look really nice, we could get thumbnails for each breed.

Gimmie $100 on the any slaughtered in site, $10 on the Ameraucana at 7-1 and a nickle on the peacock longshot.

Also, I'd like to get Pigeon, Maran, Leghorn and Brahma in a $4 Superfecta.

A Superfecta sounds... really bloody, actually. That's carnival geek territory.

Tempted to set up a PayPal account just to deal with this now - you know what you're doing!
