The small print on the sign reads:
“Provoked chickens go off their feed.
When they go off their feed they stop laying eggs.
Then I lose revenue.
The banks foreclose; I’m turned out, homeless, penny-less, on the dole even, whilst you and your mates had a lark frightening chickens.
Since I will have lots of time on my hands I will find you.
You will beg for mercy, there will be none.
I will go all Liam Neeson on you.
I promise it will be bad, very bad, the worst ever.*
Please, for the love of all that is civilized,
Do Not Provoke the Chickens.”
*Cleaning chicken coops.
