    Or even a chicken...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I just love how we always manage to come full-circle back to chickens.

    Around the world camera threads are notorious for doing that kind of thing. Chickens are an important staple in said threads... ;-P

    Actually, no. Not possible. You can go back to starting at Camera 5 threads (there are a couple) and read the definitive history of the cult of chicken sacrifice.

    The short answer is: "It's all Sile's fault!".

    Although Tim claims that it is not possible, I think it is. And here is my lame attempt to do so. I think it all comes from someone in this exchange using German language. "sending something by mail" in German is "etwas per Post schicken" and there you have it, some poor soul forgot about the 's' in schicken and so it got chicken.

    We all know you are Hamming it up rst.

    Ham is Schinken in German. Now that you have the camera, you have to sacrifice a ham.

    BTW Hahnchen is hen in German, Huhn is generic chicken.

    Now we're schinken fast!

    I think I'm going to get a chicken and name it Attila the Huhn.

    Maybe I'll get a cow and give it a German name, too. I think that would be Kuh.
