It's just how it is.

Talk about slow to get the punch.

We start as kids to learn about jokes around the age of 4. I am sure as kid we’ve all told the joke “why did the chicken cross the road?” and when prompted we answer “to get to the other side.” I always thought of this joke in it’s simplest terms. The chicken had crossed the road. But today after about 28 years it was pointed out to me (by my husband) that there is also a darker joke hidden in that inocent kids joke. He said he had only just realized that the chicken had commited suiccide because he wanted to get to the “other side”.

I can’t believe it took me 28 years to finally get the joke.
