Oujia, the Fortune Telling Chicken
I found a wonderful blog about the Silver Springs area: http://jhammer.blogs.ocala.com/10969/nohl-diving-bell-ouija-and-an-ox-cart-ride/ which boasts even more ephemera about this great Florida vintage park. Silver Springs has been a destination for pleasure seekers for decades; this blog opens the window into its fantastical history.
Cyndi Lauper had her fortune told by a chicken. No, really: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgSuI-ulM4w This makes me glad to be alive.
But wait, there's more! Musician Sean Hayes wrote a song entitle"Alabama Chicken", about a feathered prognosticator. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/shayes3
And a children's book I simply must find: http://openlibrary.org/books/OL4556195M/Clara_the_fortune-telling_chicken
If anyone has more info on chicken fortune tellers, which I'm now apparently obsessed with, feel free to drop me a line. And yes, that means YOU, Cyndi Lauper!
