Chicken sightings in print media

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

See a picture of our “nasty spill” in the September 8, 2008 edition of 24 Hours.  Thanks to everyone who pointed this photo out to us!

See a picture of the chkn sass in the September 8, 2008 edition of the Sing Tao.  According to my Dad, the caption says something like “Home-made vehicles compete in a race down a slope”.  Probably sounds more poetic in Chinese.

Our chicken was so nice we made the Sing Tao twice!  The September 14, 2008 “Community Images” section has a sweet pic of our chicken soapbox.  According to my Dad, the caption says something like “Soapboxes show off wild, crazy & imaginative ideas.”  The red inner caption says “Tremendous creativity”.  We’ll take that 😉

This article from August 30, 2008 in the Burnaby Now mentions our team.

Arrested Development and The Chicken Dance

Friday, August 29th, 2008

Again with me and tv shows (see here, here and here). But this post doesn’t have anything to do with soapboxes; this post is really just a fabulous excuse to post clips of the hilarious Bluth chicken dances from Arrested Development.

How is this relevant to our team? Read our official team bio to find out 😉

Also, guess what we’ll be doing in our skit?

I heart GOB!

Argh! That first video was taken down. Here’s the next best video I could find of the Bluth chicken dances. Enjoy it before it gets taken down, too.
