Hey, so this chickenhead dot com thing, right? You know what I'm talking about? Well it's funny, eh? Pretty DAMNED funny, in fact, I will have you know.

"ChickenHEAD!" Just the name invokes memories of Mike, the headless Mexican chicken from DENVER who had no head! Serious, there was such a chicken! Somebody back me up on this, because El Snatcher told me about this chicken what had no head but still walked among the living. It was called "Mike," but it wasn't like it would come if you called. This was like in the 30s or 40s or something, but that has nothing to do with why "Mike" was a disobedient chicken. See, he had no head, like I said before, is what I'm trying to get across here.

Anyways, this chickenhead.com DOES have a head. It would be cool if they did this thing where it was the disembodied floating head of Mike the chicken, and the whole site was written from Mike's head's perspective, because I bet you that chicken head has some stories to tell. Wooee!

But even though they don't play up the 40s-headless-chicken connection, Chickenhead-dot-com has some funny-ass shit. Like, really funny. It's got really clever visual humor in the "ad" banners, and lots of good writing and clever articles. Also, they got this thing going on with downloadable desktop things, which the Windows crowd just EATS THAT SHIT UP. They love desktop wallpaper! And SCREENSAVERS! Don't ask me WHY, because I don't know.

Anyways, this Web watcher's prognostication is that chickenhead.com is gonna blow BIG, unlike other lame rags that will go unmentioned. So maybe you should check it out before it's all famous and sucky like the Onion. Or, uh, Suck. Or whatever.

OK, so, am I missing anything? No? OK, I think I said what I have to say. Go see Chickenhead was my main point, I think, and I've said that a bit. I also worked in a dig on Suck, which is just bonus. OK, I'm done now, go see Chickenhead.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
