The wheels officially flew off the vehicle at our morning meeting on Friday.

After assembling at our normal 8:30 a.m. time, we were told we could not enter Club Innovative but instead were huddled in an adjoining room. We were advised to charge screaming into the room, a la some sort of cell extraction at SuperMax.

It was sales pro Jeffery Miller's turn to lead the meeting -- all IA members lead at least once a month -- and Miller had taken ridiculous and turned it to absurd.

Why were these men and women chanting with a chicken? What can a chicken know about company sales goals and values. Where did this chicken costume come from? Who would be asked to demonstrate the Chicken Dance? And how would this all end?

With a high-five, of course. What a way to start a Friday, and one of the craziest things I've ever seen in a workplace -- legendary.
