As Chicken-licken was going one day to the wood, whack! an acorn fell from a tree on to his head.“Gracious goodness me!” said Chicken-licken, “the sky must have fallen; I must go and tell the King.”So Chicken-licken turned back, and met Hen-len.”Well, Hen-len, where are you going?” said he.

“I’m going to the wood,” said she.

“Oh, Hen-len, don’t go!” said he, “for as I was going the sky fell on to my head, and I’m going to tell the King.”

So Hen-len turned back with Chicken-licken, and met Cock-lock. “I’m going to the wood,” said he.

Then Hen-len said: “Oh, Cock-lock, don’t go, for I was going, and I met Chicken-licken, and Chicken-licken had been at the wood, and the sky had fallen on to his head, and we are going to tell the King.”

So Cock-lock turned back, and they met Duck-luck.

“Well, Duck-luck, where are you going?”

And Duck-luck said: “I’m going to the wood.”

Then Cock-lock said: “Oh! Duck-luck, don’t go, for I was going and I met Hen-len, and Hen-len met Chicken-liken, and Chicken-liken had been at the wood and the sky had fallen on his head, and we are going to tell the King.”

So Duck-luck turned back, and met Drake-lake.

“Well, Drake-lake, where are you going?”

And Drake-lake said: “I’m going to the wood.”

Then Duck-luck said: “Oh! Drake-lake, don’t go, for I was going, and I met Cock-lock, and Cock-lock met Hen-len, and Hen-len met Chicken-licken, and Chicken-licken had been at the wood, and the sky had fallen on to his head, and we are going to tell the King.”

So Drake-lake turned back, and met Goose-loose.

“Well, Goose-loose, where are you going?”

And Goose-loose said: “I’m going to the wood.”

Then Drake-lake said: “Oh, Goose-loose, don’t go, for I was going, and I met Duck-luck, and Duck-luck met Cock-lock, and Cock-lock met Hen-len, and Hen-len met Chicken-licken, and Chicken-licken had been at the wood, and the sky had fallen on to his head, and we are going to tell the King.”

So Goose-loose turned back, and met Gander-lander.

“Well, Gander-lander, where are you going?”

And Gander-lander said: “I’m going to the wood.”

Then Goose-loose said: “Oh! Gander-lander, don’t go, for I was going, and I met Drake-lake, and Drake-lake met Duck-luck, and Duck-luck met Cock-lock and Cock-lock met Hen-len, and Hen-len met Chicken-licken, and Chicken-licken had been at the wood, and the sky had fallen on his head, and we are going to tell the King.”

So Gander-lander turned back, and met Turkey-lurkey.

“Well, Turkey-lurkey, where are you going?”

And Turkey-lurkey said: “I’m going to the wood.”

Then Gander-lander said: “Oh! Turkey-lurkey, don’t go, for I was going, and I met Goose-loose, and Goose-loose met Drake-lake, and Drake-lake met Duck-luck, and Duck-luck met Cock-lock, and Cock-lock met Hen-len, and Hen-len met Chicken-licken, and Chicken-licken had been at the wood and the sky had fallen on this head, and we are going to tell the King.”

So Turkey-lurkey turned back and walked with Gander-lander, Goose-loose, Drake-lake, Duck-luck, Cock-lock, Hen-len and Chicken-licken. And as they were going along, they met Fox-lox. And Fox-lox said: “Where are you going?”

And they said: “Chicken-licken went to the wood, and the sky fell on to his head, and we are going to tell the King.”

And Fox-lox said: “Come along with me, and I will show you the way.”

But Fox-lox took them into the fox’s hole and he and his young ones soon ate up poor Chicken-licken, Hen-len, Cock-lock, Duck-luck, Drake-lake, Goose-loose, Gander-lander, and Turkey-lurkey; and they never saw the King to tell him that the sky had fallen.

This is a pre-politically correct version of the old fairy tale. A more current version tells of the group being rescued by a dog who chased the fox away and rescued them.

Now, why did I include such a story as this on a political blog? Because Chicken Little reminds me quite a bit of Al Gore (a nonexpert in climatology) preaching the sky is falling due to Global Warming, while ignoring the immediate threat of the fox (radical Islamists) who wants to eat us (swallow us whole into their religion through cunning and force).

Update: The Anchoress has a simple solution to the whole Global Warming Crisis. Add the theatres showing the next blockbuster movies to that, why we might add even more time before the earth’s demise.
