SF-81A Black KnightAs part of the "Everything's Better With X" Snowclone Removal Drive. Picked this one because it seemed easy to resolve. The trope definition can be summed up as, "Chickens are inherently funny." I brought this up in another thread and Septimus Heap suggested Chicken For Funny. I was thinking Chickens Are Funny after reading a Giant in the Playground thread on the "Chicken Infested" D&D flaw and laughing so hard I couldn't breathe.

Yeah, Chickens Are Funny. I'd prefer Chickens For Funny - that'll better deter people from listing non-funny chickens as aversions/subversions.

Don't Fear the SpidersI would simply change it to "Everythings Funnier With Chickens" but since snowclones are out of fashion... Clucking Hilarious? Fowl Humor?
Keep it breezy!

^^Fowl Humor etc could be good. Especially to stop people from just going and making a dozen more X For Funny tropes without thinking them through. Or should be throw all Stock Funny Animal tropes into one? Is a random chicken any different tropewise that a random cow?
Don't Fear the SpidersYes. Chickens are widely considered funny creatures and are often associated with humor. It's apart of culture in general.

SF-81A Black KnightThing about Fowl Humor is it could be misinterpreted/expanded to cover "birds are funny, " which in turn would likely make it the supertrope to Fowl-Mouthed Parrot. I'm not sure that's a good idea.
Anime-tedGood point, I'd forgotten about that trope...makes Clucking Funny even better.
SF-81A Black KnightRename crowner written. I upvoted Chicken For Funny and downvoted the other stuff.

SF-81A Black KnightJust realized I misspelled "chicken" in one of the options. Fixed.
I think we have a rather clear winner here and this can be called.
