# Why did the chicken cross the road?

Seriously, why would the chicken do such a foolish act?

I asked a friend for his insight, he just sent me this:

T̵̻͎̟͕͕̅ͩ̏͊̊ͯ͑͒ͣ̃͊̐ͤ̚͘o̡̞̪͚͎̭ͣͬ͂̓̋̐̅ͯ͆͒̾̒̄̓̀̚q̛̮͔̹̙͉̭͖̮͕͕̞͈̼͕̭̬̯̊̍ͪ̓͆̏ͫ͊ͧ͌̅͌ͧ̚͜6̸̱̯̥̭̻͓͉͍͕͕̗̼̤͒́̿̅̃̅ͩͪ̄͒̍̀͡ͅͅF̵̗̘̠̬̥͕͈̠͓̭̯̹͌ͨ͂̔ͫ̃̑ͤ̂̄͛ͪ̃̚̚ͅͅͅͅ

What does the message from my friend mean?

"Escaped goats Enrage Northern Virgina" gives EgENV. Using this as an imgur code gives the following image:

And the text is fpmy sdl wirdyopmd upi fpmy esmy yjr smdert yp

Now to decipher that:

Shift your fingers one letter to the left on the (QWERTY) keyboard, and the text becomes:

Could that be the final answer, or is there more to discover?

• @WELZ at first I thought the link was broken. I see there are four tiny icons in the corner. "no chicken / yes beef" I guess. Is this still part of the puzzle? Dec 18 '18 at 1:25
• No, this is part of Stack Exchanges "thing"

The tag imgur-maze and the text I think I can read (horizontally), Toq6F lead to an imgur image
