Otis Escapes, parts 4019 - 4022

 4019. When the Fowler fell over backwards and thumped his head on the ground, I was quite sure that the sound I heard was simply my head being separated from my body.

 4020. We are taught from infancy what we are to do when our heads are cut off, and in our schools, even from the first grades we are drilled in the technique and have to practice it in front of our school masters. 

 4021. Not only are we taught that we must run frantically around and up and down, but great stress is laid upon just what sort of running around we are supposed to do. Running around in circles is strictly forbidden, neither are we allowed to run around is figure eights, or any other repeating patterns.

4022. The running of the dead chicken has to be random and erratic, it must be as unpredictable as possible. This is simply because any kind of geometric pattern, would seem to suggest that there is logic in the experience of death. Perhaps there is logic in death, I do not know, but if there is, we chickens and roosters are not supposed to give any intimation of it.
