Fowl things are afoot!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
A wandering, fabulist tale of heists, gold-covered cars, a head in a box, stealing KFC's recipe amid an array of colorful characters from Mad Rose to Bill Murray. Leading to the answer to the question of why the chicken crossed the road!!
It's a wonderful tale to listen to, easier to listen to than read & follow this collection of tall tales.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A Birdbrained Scheme
Why did the chicken cross the road? Colonel Sanders, Bill Murray, and a whole host of dimwitted crooks all have their parts to play in answering that question.
Told as a retrospective by an unnamed narrator, Birdbrain tells the story of a heist (or two) gone wrong. Following the classic heist storyline, Jim Yoakum shows what would happen if you were to recruit a group of loudmouth drunken idiots at a bar and actually put them in a heist.
The characters play out as self-parodies of the typical roles, sufficiently proficient in one specific area, but so deeply lacking in the basest of common sense that it's a wonder they've made it thus far through life.
Seasoned with plenty of useless trivia, amusing conspiracy theories, and convoluted and mondegreened urban legends, Birdbrain is one book that you won't want to put down.
