Taiwan 'Chicken Little' meets fate despite cute helmet
Many people in Taiwan raise chickens in their backyards, including some amateur farmers who are always worried that something bad might happen to their beloved “pets.”
To support this argument, a Canadian recently posted on his social media account some screenshots from an earlier post by a poultry farmer’s son who shared some tips on how to protect chickens from being crushed by durians.
The Twitter user wrote: “This is really Taiwan! That’s really going to kill me!”
The original Facebook post on Wednesday included a photo of some chickens wearing helmets with the caption: “Every year, my grandpa’s chickens are killed by durians, so I brought him a gift this summer.
However, as the last photo of the post revealed, even a chicken wearing a helmet can’t avoid a durian’s unexpected “attack.”
“Unfortunately it didn’t really make a difference,” the post read.
The Twitter user reposted the comment and wrote: “This post on Facebook is killing me. It’s so Taiwan.”
Many commented on this story: “I’m dying,” while another said, “OMG, this is both hilarious and sad.” Another commented: “Happily, Issac Newton was not born a Taiwanese, or the law of gravity may never have been discovered!”
