Somebody's Facebook post led me to this historical tidbit.
Apparently, Francis Bacon died of pneumonia after packing a dead chicken in ice - a pioneering experiment in frozen food gone tragically awry.
But that's not the end of the story ...
Cluck - I mean, click - the link for the extra-creepy details.
It's a tale of murder most fowl, and of a plucky plucked chicken who took a lickin' but kept on tickin'! Is it a hen from hell, a case of super-thigh, or merely a dumb yolk that will leave us with egg on our face?
