The Barnyard Parade Has Been Cancelled

From CNN
A retired nurse saved her brother's chicken, Boo Boo, by administering mouth-to-beak resuscitation last week after the fowl was found floating face down in the family's pond.

Marian Morris said she hadn't had any practice with CPR in years, but she was interested to see if she "still had it."

See, lady, that's why you don't let your CPR certification lapse. If you'd been taking your continuing education classes, you would know that that the American Heart Association now recommends a compression-to-ventilation ratio of 30:2. So swapping spit with that chicken could have killed it because you weren't doing chest compressions as well.
