Was just over at the supermarket looking for something to grill for today when in the meat section I noticed they had some free range poultry labelled Smart Chicken.

It seems to be a company name as witnessed by this website:

However, being it was early and I was also there to get coffee which had run out and which I had not yet drunk, I muttered to myself "well, it's not very smart if it's in a freezer case wrapped in plastic".

Seriously, wouldn't the really smart chickens be the ones that figured out how to stay free and ranging? Isn't that what intelligence in evolution is all about? In fact, the super smart chickens would use the situation to get rid of their reproductive rivals ("hey, I hear they're giving out extra feed over near the barn...hurry up, you don't want to miss that...").
