During my senior year at Washington State University I did research on chickens at the Veterinary school. You know, it was just one of those things. In the process of it, I learned how to hypnotize (mesmerize) chickens. It really is something that everyone should know how to do. After all, you never know when it might come in handy. At WSU we did it so we could put them on their side and give them medication to relax them before we operated on them. So I just couldn't resist teaching my Haitian friends how to do. Besides, the team was eager to learn as well.
So, with everyone gathered around I began the secret procedure. The first chicken I tried wouldn't cooperate. Well...neither did the second. So, being the bold man that I am, I decided to try the rooster. You can tell from the picture that the rooster thought he was king. I looked deep into his eyes, performed the hand motions and voila! The rooster was still wide awake.
Final conclusion: Myth Busted. Not possible to hypnotize Haitian chickens or Haitian roosters.
