Ever heard of the joke, "Why did the chicken cross the road?" Of course, you have, alongside other classic witticisms like "Knock knock; who's there?" Along with common others like "A Scotsman, an Englishman, and an Irishman walk into a bar," these jokes have been retold a gazillion times.

While the quip alleges that the chicken crosses the road to get to the other side, someone has taken it upon themselves to ensure that chickens can do this safely with your help. All you need is a special harness.

But let's be serious for a moment — when most people think of chickens, they don't imagine them crossing roads. At least I don't.

As far as I know, many chickens spend all their lives in cages, and the chance to cross the road never happens once in their lives.

Anyway, let's just say that the lucky few do cross roads just got luckier.

And it's all thanks to a newly introduced chicken harness. Because of this product, chickens that cross the road can do so more safely. If this sounds like a joke, know that it's not.

This harness was specially constructed so that you can attach it to a chicken's back. You can have it walk in front of you like a regular canine pet. That's quite an image.

I am at a loss to explain why this would even be necessary for you, but maybe it's for farmers. But they have lots of chickens, don't they? That's a lot of harnesses.

But that's beside the point, I suppose. We now have the option of buying a chicken harness. That's all that matters.

Fortunately, it's not my place to decide who needs it. So, I leave it up to you to decide whether you need this harness or not.

But if you do, here is how you get one. Just visit Yesito.com. Along with the harness, you will get instructions on how it works, which is quite thoughtful, all things considered.

As for its construction, the chicken harness features a buckle and adjustable straps that should work well with most average-sized hens.

This is not a gag gift either. It has full functionality as it also comes with a natty bow tie that will ensure that your chicken looks dressed up as it crosses the road. Talk about a fowl sense of fashion.

The price? This harness will only set you back $50.

For this price, you can enjoy walking your chicken safely as you cross the road.

It is still difficult to understand why or who decided that this product is a good idea. I guess having a good sense of humor would be an important factor here.

Maybe it got tired of the old chicken quip and wants us to move from "Why" the chicken crossed the road to "How" the chicken actually did it. In that case, the answer would be this peculiar product — the chicken harness.

But that's just me. What do you think?
