Why Chicken-fat.com



Here is a couple of pages draw by Will Elder, THE RAVEN, torn from MAD Comicbook #9. Now and then someone asks me how come I named my blog Chicken-fat.com. Study and enjoy Elder's mini art and you will find the clue of why Chicken-fat is Chicken-fat.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY I-285!q

Today th I-285 is 50 years old today!!  The I-285 that wraps around Atlanta like a 64 miles long snake is 50 years old today.  Toot your horn!








The Braves baseball players had a star player Pascual Perez who did not speak or read English.  On his first drive to the stadium he could not read the road signs on the I-285.  He looped the 285 several times.  He was late and gained the nickname  Pascual 285 Perez which later was changed to Perimeter Perez.
