In these times of constitutional crisis, when a reality-TV gameshow host/president is slowly delegitimizing the rule of law, it can be hard to find hope. But the sun is shining, and we live to fight again. Leading the charge: This chicken playing "My Country 'Tis of Thee" on a keyboard. 

Refill the cup of patriotism and wave your miniture American flag with pride. Old glory, she's still got a few tricks up her sleeve..

Something is fowl over at Australian food chain Chicken Treat.

The company has hired a new social media manager, and she's a literal chicken.
