Mike the headless chicken

One from the kinda gross yet still kinda cool files: In 1945 a chicken in America was beheaded to eat, as was the fashion of the day. The head chopping went a bit awry (the chopper's mother-in-law quite liked chicken necks) and the chicken did not die for a further 18 months. It kept its head under its wing. Its name was Mike.
