Did anybody hear this story? British Aerospace invented a canon, which fired chickens at aircraft windscreens to test their resistance to birdstrike. Visiting engineers from Boeing saw this and thought it would be a great idea. BA gave them the drawings and Boeing built one of their own. On the great day, the top Boeing management lined up to watch the first test. The canon was fired and they all watched in horror as the chicken crashed straight through the windscreen, removed the dummy pilot's head, destroyed the headrest and smashed through the bulkhead. In shock they sent a fax to BA asking what could have gone wrong. The next morning came the reply by fax with three simple words: "Defrost the chicken".
