I don't know if this is for real or not, but I just had to share: A range of fashion clothing for chickens has been launched by a group of designers working in Austria and Japan. From the site:
- Austrian Edgar Honetschlaeger said he decided to work with the Japanese on the project because he hoped to make the chicken label clothing essential. He said "It's something that you don't really need but everyone wants to have anyway".
The idea has already taken off after the designers staged a fashion show that is now touring the world.
Several farmers have already had chicken suits with the name of their farm ordered and many advertisers have enquired about the possibility of having sponsored suits promoting everything from KFC to chicken soup.
Well, I guess if you work for a poultry association, this could be another sponsorship opportunity! (Via BoingBoing.)
