This brings back memories from the Muskogee County Fair in Oklahoma where I grew up.
They had this same thing, but with a real chicken! The chicken was in a cage and you would put in a quarter and play Tic-Tac-Toe. The chicken would peck at a control panel, but I'm sure it was just a drop of food that would trigger the computer to play against you.
But when was the last time they had a real alectryomancer?
Rural county fairs just aren't what they used to be. With everyone relying on pesticides and genetically modified seeds, even the few remaining cultic sex rituals seem like pointless screwing around. Here in Illinois I've never seen our temple prostitutes look so glum. Last year just to cheer 'em up we put the scapegoat hide around a Monsanto rep, but even after we stoned him to death they barely cracked a smile.
