Thinking of a second career as organic farmer?

Feeling chicken: Alex Williams has a funny piece in the Style section, about fallback careers people might fantasize about after they get laid off from their cubicle jobs. Williams heads off to Northwind Farms, a boutique-size meat farm. Comedy ensues. (New York Times)

    This is kind of funny, if you find ineptitude funny. So maybe Williams is playing up the self-deprecation, but it worries me that the average  American cube worker is entirely lacking basic survival skills, including cooking anything that isn’t mostly prepared already. If the economy truly collapses, we aren’t going to need too many dog masseurs, but gutting a chicken is a pretty practical skill to have.
