chook = Aussie slang for chicken

brown = my last name


When I came to this country (USA) my husband to be took me to a classy little place for lunch - Kenny Rogers Roaster... Looking up at the menu board I said I would have the chook. The order taker and my husband both looked at me like I was speaking another language so I explained that chook was slang for chicken... woops...

He threatened chook licence plates for my car, I said no.

He immediately registered website domain name and now our computer company is CHOOK INC. go figure... He reckons it is no worse than Yahoo.

I also collect chickens for my kitchen.
