Cage Free Eggs

Does the village idiot know he’s the village idiot?
Does a senile person know that he’s senile?
Do severely retarded people know they’re retarded?
At what point, if ever, does a sucker know he’s been suckered?
Does a fool know he’s a fool?

Does a hen know which side of the fence she’s on?
Can chickens tell time?

If a person pays more than triple the going rate for a dozen eggs ($3.45 vs $1.09) just because they are advertised as “cage free” (but can’t actually go anywhere); does that person know they’ve been swindled?

It is a consummate hypocrisy to declare chickens “free” ultimately to devour both them and their unhatched offspring.
If indeed chickens must scratch for their living – does it matter where?
Does liberation improve a chicken’s point-of-view? And what about the eggs? Do they even have a point-of-view?
Did anyone bother to ask the chicken’s opinion?
Is a free range chicken more or less “happy as a clam?”
Being, as they are, subject to the fox, the hawk, eagles, stray cats and automobiles, etc.; is a free range chicken’s life less stressful and more fulfilling?

Anthropomorphization: ascribing human characteristics to an inanimate object or a lower life form. (e.g. Mr. Peanut.) Naturalists and especially advertisers are guilty of it.

When you are wrong, do you know that you are wrong?
