I don’t have a title for this because I’ve run out of puns. Please insert your own.

I promise to stop writing about giant metal chickens next week, but before we move on I thought I’d share a photo that my friend Erica snapped in Houston.


I can only assume that the woman who lives here hasn’t been allowed to buy towels for *decades*.

See?  It could be so much worse.

PS.  I pointed out to Victor that I’d made $200 selling violent chicken cards on the internet and he said that was awesome, and then I explained that now I could go buy two more chickens and then Victor asked whether he should bury my body in the front yard or the back yard.  Because apparently Victor doesn’t understand to concept of “reinvesting in the business“.

PPS.  I was planning on secretly inching Beyoncé a little closer to Victor’s office window each day until he was finally glaring right into Victor’s window, but when I went to move him I noticed that there was a flying wild boar perched on Beyoncé’ head.

Well, that's...unexpected.

Victor swears he didn’t do it so I can only imagine that this is a sign of the impending acockolypse.  Victor said it was probably the neighbors, and then I sat there in silence and Victor finally shook his head and asked if I was being so quiet because I was struggling to think of more cock puns (which would have been insulting if it wasn’t also totally accurate).  Then he sighed and graciously admitted that “perhaps Beyoncé is going incocknito”.  And that is exactly why I love that man.

PPPS.  Several of you have asked for Beyoncé T-shirts.  Here you go:

The probably-not-safe-for-casual-day version.

And the version that probably won’t get you fired.

  70. The “knock knock, mfer” one reminds me of the epic battle between Peter Griffin and the giant cock on Family Guy.

  71. Are giant metal chickens effective zombie deterrent? I would think so, especially Beyonce, given that he will cut you. Zombies would be afraid to lose limbs. Tell Victor you need more to protect the house

  72. So when you buy more chickens, and Victor does indeed have need of burying you in the yard, you should request Beyoncé be your headstone.

    And when he doesn’t really kill you and you die of natural causes (or anxiety, if we’re being realistic) you should still request Beyoncé be your head stone even if you are being buried at an actual cemetery. If I were you, I’d add that shit to your will now. What with Blogher coming up, the death by anxiety might be sooner than anticipated. Though I’m sure the bathrooms in San Diego are nice and will help prevent that.

    I wonder if Beyoncé will fit into bathroom stalls? That way you can take her to all your conferences and the people can meet her in person. I wonder if people meeting and staring at your cock would increase or decrease your anxiety?

    Also, if getting taxidermied animlas on a plane is fun, I wonder what a 5ft metal cock would be like? Would you have to buy it it’s own seat?

    Think of the blog posts that would follow!

    Please don’t’ EVER stop writing about your cock.

  73. @Kris- My husband and I call it M Shithole sales, but you sure can get some great statues there. Nothing as cool as a giant metal chicken, but maybe close.

    @ Deecat – I agree. I would definitely order Knock, Knock Motherfucker towels for my guest bathroom.

    The cock puns are hilarious and I’m frustrated that I can’t think of one to add right now.

  74. I tried to “like” Beyonce on Facebook, but it was some singer, and there were no results for big metal chicken.

Unless you work with a bunch of assholes. Like some of the people who left you nasty comments on the original chicken article. Either way, I still want to be your second Laura BF.

So, I was thinking it would be hilarious to put “knock-knock, motherfucker” on a onesie (is that even a real word? do those little baby outfits have another name?) , then I was thinking of other funny things utilizing the word “motherfucker” and thought of how the Rumpus has “write like a motherfucker” mugs, and then it came to me….”cry like a motherfucker” onesies…. or “poop like a motherfucker”…. or “burp like a motherfucker”

    Throughout the performance, I couldn’t help but wish Beyonce (the singer) was replaced at some point with Beyonce (the giant metal cock). The entire chorus to ‘single ladies’ could be re-worded:

    “Cuz if you liked it then you shoulda let me buy towels

    I need more sleep or coffee to process these developments.

    FYI- I recently got real chickens and they are totally cool! Get a couple of hens! Victor and Hailey would *love* them!

  150. O. Mi. God!
    First thing I see when I get on the innernets with a pre-pms pre-migraine is a giant steel cock and a little flying porker. And then I had to laugh so hard my head exploded.

    The little porker buddy needs a name. I suggest Richard. Or Little Richard. Then he would be Little Dickie, the Flying Porker. Kind of looks like a little sausage, doesn’t he? And with a name like that he just has to be Beyoncé’s sidekick and they could have their own detective action TV show, like Starsky and Hutch or Simon and Garfunkel, called Cock and Porker. They could set the show in Steeltown. Only if that’s still Pittsburg though. And they could chase bad guys, ring doorbells, play piano and sing rock & roll, and play football.

    And why stop there? They could also go to Japan and sell canned coffee, Pocari Sweat and Calpis just like The Arnold and Tommy Lee Jones.

    Wait. When is the Year of the Cock again?

I used to think it was because I didn’t have time, but recently I gave up sleep so I could go through everything you have ever written, EVER. Caffeine is my friend. At this point I have facebooked*, (not a real word but whatever) linked, texted and basically told everyone I have ever met about you and feel at least partially responsible for your server crash. *Sorry*(but not wholly responsible because I don’t know that many people) I told my best friend that if he wasn’t so awesome I would fire his ass and send you an application and possibly move to Texas, then I remembered that I don’t like Texas much. In short, (or long) I find your blog both entertaining and touching. What you have done here is amazing, and I applaud you.

  243. I pointed out to spouse that it could be so much worse. I could have come home with a big ass metal chicken. Then, the youngest minion mentioned there was one nearby, but no one knew what she was talking about. Still, should I find a big metal chicken, I’ll make sure to post about it.

  244. I actually drive past that chicken-filled yard about 4 times every day. It isn’t a house, sadly, but a really shitty “antiques” store. It is at the intersection of Dunlavy and Westheimer and somehow avoided catching on fire when half of the block burned last Halloween. I guess because everything there is metal? Anyway, if you are going to make the trek in to Houston to purchase a whole (flock? brood?) of chickens to be Beyonce’s back-up fowl, please come hide out in my bathroom at work. It’s really nice! Roomy! And we have champagne on Fridays! AND wigs are welcome but not required!

    I named our cat Beyonce’ for the simple reason that it is freakin’ hilarious to watch my manly cop husband stand in the yard and yell, “BEYONCE’, COME HERE GIRL…IT’S TIME TO EAT”.

  246. wow, that giant cock really puts yours to shame.

  247. I’m pretty sure I drove past that chicken right in the middle of Montrose the other day. If it wasn’t the same chicken, it was surely a relative. I thought to myself, “I should take that picture and send it to Jenny. Maybe Beyonce needs a friend.” Then the light turned and I had to drive away. I will probably never see said chicken again, and if I do, I hope it is standing outside my apartment door. Suck on THAT, weird apartment managers!

    Did I mention my Ambien did not work tonight?

  248. So I was out biking this week and low and behold, there was a metal chicken in someone’s front yard! I have ridden this ride many times and I you’d think that I would have noticed a metal chicken before, but maybe I’m just sensitized to it now after your reading your blog. Or maybe they read your blog and you helped them to feel empowered enough to move the chicken to the front yard instead of hiding it in the backyard (it’s actually a pretty swanky neighborhood).

  249. I just received a metal chicken t-shirt in the mail from a friend for my birthday. Best thing I have gotten in the mail. Ever. Go ahead and buy yourself a towel. Name it after me.

    Just so you know, every time I come home with something not exactly *needed* and I see my husband roll his eyes, I simply say “at least it’s not a metal chicken!” And if he gives me any crap about anything (like buying kids’ clothes a year in advance because I HAVE to, they’re on clearance!), I remind him next time I just might bring home Beyonce. Thank you for that story, it is one of the funniest things I’ve ever read!

  251. An ex- girlfriend emailed me your metal chicken blog post. For better or worse I ordered her a Beyonce tank top as proof of what a thoughtful failed boyfriend I was. Knock, knock.

  252. #1 I will be so disappointed if you stop writing about giant metal chickens. In fact, why not start a giant metal barnyard, add a giant metal cow next? Just kidding, well mostly. #2 I think w/ your chicken card money you should buy towels…possibly embroidered w/ Beyonce’s likeness. #3 This one should probably be #1, I very much enjoy your blog!

    After reading your blog I went to Idaho to visit some family for the weekend. Stopped in the town they filmed “Dante’s Peak” because I wanted to say I was that kind of cool and the first thing I see is a Giant Metal Chicken outside the door of a little deli/curio shop. I wanted to put it up here for you but I’m technologically retarded and couldn’t figure out a way.

    I have to say I found something better in that same store that was infinitely more tacky….a GIANT METAL PINK FLAMINGO. 10′ of hot pink awesomeness that had my husband not been with me would have ended up in my backyard. Why would I want a giant Pink flamingo?? I’ll tell you…because my husband (who would probably have a lot of stories to share with Victor) FORBID me from buying to small little pink flamingos to put next to my deck. Apparently Miami old age coolness is beyond his understanding because they would completely make my evening margarita far more entertaining. So I have just put it as my screensaver at work and occupy myself thinking exactly how scared my cat would have been of that monstrosity.

    Love your blog and our common interest of drinking and stressing our husbands out by a perpetual worry of exactly what we may do next

  254. there is a 10 foot tall giant metal chicken for sale off of hwy 49 in Mississippi between Jackson and Hattiesburg. In case anyone is looking.

  255. I have been looking for my own Beyonce since reading this. The closest I have come is Beyonce’s little sister Kelly. Now I am torn on buying Kelly because she is only $20 less than what Beyonce was and she is half the side. I don’t think that Kelly would have the same effect as Beyonce knocking at the front door…

  256. I need you to know that the big metal chicken came up in our nightly bedtime stories with my kids. I was reading your blog to my husband earlier that day and apparently my son (8) was listening. In his story that night, (the subject was supposed to be a robot chicken) his ended with the giant metal robot chicken standing at the front door and ringing the doorbell just to annoy the man inside. Then the guy answered the door and cut the chicken’s head off. So, at lease Victor comes away the winner!

  257. Just want you to know that I found a 4 foot tall giant metal chicken in Cambridge, Wisconsin, this past weekend. With a Coca Cola sign for a tail. I named him Victor. Email me if you want a picture. Thanks for the laughs!

  258. Upon further consideration, I think you should attach wheels to its feet and next time you buy towels ride victory laps around them. Also, think of the incredible number of “riding a giant cock” jokes that doing so would allow.

  259. […] this one was only 2 inches tall.  It’s an exact, 2-D replica of the Beyoncé statue (with the flying pig on his head) that I had made in resin.  For Victor’s […]

  260. @Laura (up there somewhere…) I know I’m late, but I know EXACTLY where that place is in Houston. It’s one block south of westheimer, on dunlavy. They have some GORGEOUS wire butterfly chairs, too. My friend (whose name is also Laura, go figure.) and I drooled over those. So, hopefully no one else has answered this, because reading all 250 comments was not possible, but yeah.

  261. Dear Jenny,
    Please, Please, do not stop writing about the giant metal chickens! It is the only thing that has kept me sane for the past few days. You had so many responses from your Big Metal Chicken, Beyonce, I’m not sure if I miss where she was purchased?

    I live on the East Coast and people around here like, Wishing wells, Lighthouses, and the occasional Flamingo’s etc…..me I absolutely want a big metal Chicken—-It can go along with our 5 feet bear in my foyer- that I “always” wanted, he’s so fucking cute, now we have a 2 foot bear in the family room!! —Can ya tell… almost 16 years later I’m pissed………. Please for the love of God and all that is good in the world, please help?????

    The OtherHalf is getting a bunch of cement work done on the back of the house and Beyonce and that enormous cock at the top of your page would do just fine, especially since he’ll be at work and I’ll be here with all the workers, hopefully their English will suck…and I will convince them to put the chicken right into the new cement deck, and awning:))

    Love, Love, Love….your blog……….

    I’ll go post some pictures of the bear(s)—yes, that is plural


    (I got it at Home Goods in San Antonio. Look online for rustic metal animals. ~ Jenny)

    Jenny recently posted NOTHING IS GOING TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER.

  262. Thank You for the info…the husband is still not happy about me asking you about the chicken etc….or the fact I do not care what he says the f-ing 450 lb. Wooden hand carved bear im going to cement into the ground so like it can not be moved again back into the home hopefully forever or about the enormous metal chicken(if I can find on in time) im putting it outside and buying an umbrella stand/holder-he is getting put in/on the new cement slab! I swear it’s him or the bear, I love the 5 foot bear don’t get me totally wrong but seriously 16 years I’ve been waiting, come on…i’m going to screw with him (The Otherhalf) and make his life a living he’ll……oh wait, I already do that…..Truthfully I’m googling the closest Home Goods store ASAP after we return from our vacation!

    Jenny, your the best

  263. I was laughing so hard reading this I was crying. My husband thinks I’ve lost my mind.

  264. I’m thinking the flying pig was put there by someone from Seattle. Behold, Beth’s Cafe, home of the 12 egg omelette among other things:

    They have a Beyonce AND a bronze flying pig on their sign:

    I’m thinking somebody wants pancakes….

  265. To heck with the metal chicken. I want to know where I can get a “Victor” LOL

  266. WE imagined it would definitely be some monotonous out of date put up, but it surely reimbursed intended for your point in time. I will content a url to this site with my personal blog site. I am sure this readers will find the fact that useful.
