Monday (morning) writing joke: “Laying it on”

A chicken and a detective-fiction writer waited in line to see Santa Claus.

When the chicken got up on Santa’s lap, it immediately laid an egg, which it gave to Santa.

When the writer sat on Santa’s lap, he also laid an egg.

“That’s amazing!” Santa said.

“Nah,” said the writer. “That’s just a copy of my latest work, a hard-boiled mystery. It’s pretty good, but it does tend to crack toward the end.”
