Chickens and Pigs. Get Over It. Please.


Hi all,

Since starting the site back in September, I have received a lot of email from readers regarding the cartoon about the Chicken and Pig. If you are not familiar with the story, please go read it here.

Please note: This is not a story I started. It has been around for a long time (even since before Scrum — applied in different circumstances).

I had one very long email thread (that I may one day publish here) that discusses how I am degrading people by referring to them as Chickens and Pigs.

Three words:

Get over it.

In addition to being a great way to have people recognize the role they play on a Scrum team, the analogy has allowed Tony and I to create this cartoon and website.

Cool stuff.

Maybe it is even something you’d like to pass around to your geek friends and neighbors.

And laugh. We all need that once in a while.

I hope you agree.

I still do intend to continue publishing on this site using Chickens, Pigs, and other “cast members” (including the ScrumMaster, Product Owner, and “Ken”). Who knows what else will appear in the future!

If any real Chickens and Pigs are offended, please tell them I apologize. No Animals, ScrumMasters, or Product Owners are being hurt in the production of this cartoon series (smile).

Have a great day!
