Hobo Chicken
As Joseph and I were driving into town, it occured to me that "Hobo Chicken" would be a great name for a band.  Then, I got to thinking about the images that "Hobo Chicken" might conjure up.  I soon drew Joseph into my funky musings and we discussed it at length.  
First thought it brought to my mind is a chicken carrying a stick over his shoulder with a knapsack hankerchief tied to one end.
The second thought was a bunch of hobos sitting around a fire eating a roasted chicken they snatched from someone's chicken yard.
Joseph's first ideas was a vagrant chicken riding a train.  
But, the best image was the last one Joseph came up with.  "Hobo Chicken" made him think of a hobo that always runs away.  
I laughed a long time at that one.

One of my favorite local groups, here in KC, is 4 Fried Chickens and a Coke. They are also fraternity brothers of my dad. Go Zeta Chi's!
