Why did the Ido speaker (Ido = reformed Esperanto from 1907) cross the road?

To try to get the chicken to learn Ido.


There are a few things which you need to understand to get this joke -- which will almost certainly no longer be funny once I am done explaining it.

  1. There is an old joke about chickens crossing the road. You need to know that there are often chickens "on the other side" of roads.
  2. Ido is basically a dead language at this point, but was a pretty big deal when it was introduced. It has become the butt of jokes and hard feelings over the years.
  3. Chickens don't speak human language. Normally they just eat, poop, cluck, and say "kikirki".
  4. The Idist must be pretty desperate for new blood if he's trying to get Chickens to learn Ido.
  5. This joke was originally read by my son on Radio Verda when he was about 6 years old.
