Sometimes it DOES take a Rocket Scientist!! (Friday Funnies #III)

From the e-mail rounds – Believed to be taken from the ROLLS-ROYCE STAFF MAGAZINE

Scientists at Rolls Royce built a gun specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners and military jets  travelling at maximum velocity.

The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.

American engineers heard about the gun and were eager to try the gun on the Windshields of their new high speed trains. Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the American engineers.

When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken shot out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped the engineer’s back-rest in two and embedded itself in the back of the cabin wall.

The horrified Americans sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the British scientists for suggestions.

Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo:

“Defrost the chicken.”
