Skeptico is a year old!

To celebrate the occasion, he's invited some of our favourite groups and celebrity cranks to answer the age old question: Why did the chicken cross the road? I found the response for Greenpeace one of the most fitting.
The genetically modified chicken crossed the road to contaminate the non-GM chickens on the other side of the road with genetically modified DNA. This has created a “superchicken” that can cross roads at will without ever being hit by a truck.
Interestingly enough, it seems that greenpeace have still failed to update their website with the more recent information surrounding the 'infiltration' of genetically engineered maize genes into the wild type. It seems sensationalist claims are much better arguments than presenting 'facts' in this scenario.
