It's Hühnermann, Vienna's childlike chicken person!

Here he is, peddling a miniature chicken on a plate. Hey, it's not much of an accomplishment, really. Look around. Birds willing to sell out their kind are a dime schilling a dozen.

But that doesn't stop Chicken Man from feeling like the cat who betrayed the canary. No, sir. He's up there, giving us the ol' thumbs up, looking like he just fought a great battle. Well, maybe he did. We're sure that stabbing birds in the back is hard work. And it's not just birds, either. According to the sign, it's baby cows and fish, too!

Note of Grave Import: While this might be our first chicken wearing lederhosen, it's not our first food animal. That honor belongs to Hiya the pig, in two (!) of his many incarnations.
