You know what they say about best laid plans. They often don't work out like you think. That was the case for a farmer in Iowa who was trying to fetch a chicken down from a barn. Ultimately, it was his light that paid the ultimate price.

This happened just a few days ago in Durant, Iowa. Here's what the farmer had to say about what went down (literally):

I just started recording the chickens up on the board and if it was nothing worth sending I just deleted them until this chicken decided to fly right into my light bulb. I don’t think this will be the last time either. The other day I went into the building and right when I came in a chicken went flying down and ran right into another board and fell to the ground and took out my light again. Didn’t break it but must not like the light being there.

NOTE: no chickens or farmers were harmed in the making of this video. As for the light bulb, well...

Amazingly, the light bulb survived the chicken and the fall. Impressive. If the light bulb people don't make this into a commercial, they're missing a golden opportunity.
