Believe it or not today — May 14th — is ‘National Dance Like A Chicken Day’ — because … well …. Why not?!?

Apparently, the original version was created by a Swiss accordionist, Werner Thomas, in the 1950s.

The shocking thing is that we seem to have ended up with the wrong bird because when Werner put his song together it was called, ‘The Duck Dance’.
