Vick: "Chickens ... Are Very Athletic to Me"

1/26/2009 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The next time Michael Vick calls you "chicken" -- take it as a compliment ... because dude believes they're "uncanny" thinkers and even more spectacular athletes. Seriously.

Launch docs

PETA just released the handwritten answers Vick gave to a "Developing Empathy" test he took just after he pled guilty to dogfighting charges in 2007 -- and he scored a whopping 73.5 out of 100 ... that's about a "C."

Among the highlights, Vick explains "The Golden Rule" as doing "on to others as u want them to do on to u .... (as long the feeling is mutual)." But that's only the beginning -- check out some unedited highlights:

"People who abuse animals dont [sic] have a heart and find it amusing to see animals suffer."

"Chickens have an uncanny ability to think and are very agile. They are very athletic to me."

"My aunt Tina own a Rotti name Tico. Once my aunt and her boyfriend Wayne was having an intense fight ... [Tico] jump through a glass window & pinned my aunt boyfriend Wayne to the ground just growling ... Now that's loyalty."

After he took the test, PETA balked on an offer to shoot a TV spot with Vick after his lawyers insisted they support his return to the NFL.

They should've graded it on grammar/English too. He's an idiot on more than one count. Try some classes in prison and learn to write fool.

.........Why do the Vick supporters, always seem to ignore the person, who Vick really is, and just think of him getting back to playing football?....................Is this, the only important aspect in your thinking?..............Animal abuse and killing and neglect is a terrible thing for any society to participate in, or condone by ignoring the reality, and facts.........................Vick does not deserve to return to the NFL...............ever....................Roger Goodell has not banned Vick for life yet.............I suppose, it is still a toss-up as to which way it will go......................................I hope those concerned will write Roger Goodell at the NFL and express the opinion of, No more Vick...........ever.

Did he graduate high school????Any average 6th grader can write better.Unbelievable.Hope they let him play ball again though,because he certainly isn't qualified to land a job that requires any kind of intelligence,so he'll probably go back to doing what he does best....such a loser.

Maybe when he gets out he could open a gymnastics training school for chickens,since they're so agile and athletic and all...

Falcons Fan    

He never got to the SuperBowl before this...so you really think that, at his age and having had to take a year off, he will get there now??? Not likely.
As far as football is concerned: Mike Vick is a HAS BEEN. He threw his career away. Sure, he might play again--but he lost his opportunity.
Uh, 99cents, the NFL does NOT need a washed up QB with this level of bad press. He'll be a cancer to whoever gets stuck with him. Look what a great job he did here in Atlanta--shooting birds at fans, "They gonna love Mike Vick regardless" (direct quote from an interview after all of this came to light) nope!

Can someone who is “so disgusted” by Vick’s behavior explain to me the difference between killing innocent animals during hunting season and killing a dog. Aside from one is popular among white culture and is completely legal and the other is punishable by prison time and loss of an entire career? This makes no sense. Seems like some underlying racial disparity/jealousy at work.

For those of you who feel it’s necessary to put Michael Vick down about his grammar and language use (and especially the idiots who think MV’s bad grammar is attributable to entire race of people) – you are not only showing your ignorance, you are showing your own insecurities. You see, only people who feel bad about themselves in the first place feel the need to put someone down to make themselves seem better/more accomplished. I feel sorry for you.

Some of you need to do some soul searching and self-help.

.....................One luv @ 10:49 pm................Well, you ask what is the difference between killing innocent, wild animals and killing dogs?.....................The innocent wild animals have a chance, at their result...........the dogs have no chance due to Vick, owning, caging, and controlling their life from start to finish,...........As all dog owners do..................The natural instinct to evade humans has been domesticated out of dogs, by we the society..............Dogs are basically companion animals...................You state that one is popular, legal, and a favorite of white people...........And the other is illegal, popular among black people?.................. and Vick was punished due to breaking many laws, not just one.......................................................Since you brought it up.............Black people do not hunt?.................You do realize, that your whole post is racially based?.........................As to a put down of grammer, spelling, composition ability,................................It all goes together, doesn't it?................A person of less education, or inteligence, always presents themselves as, "less" than the rest of the people in the room................There is nothing else they can do, because that is all they are................If you have never read anything, other than the newspaper, what else could you talk about?.............................Vick participated in dog fighting for years, before the Six Years during the Falcons.............As per his mother in an interview....................So, Vick is a summary of, no empathy, no compassion, no integrity, no honor, no education, no intelligence, presentation based on bravado, broken laws, animal abuse and killing, the hurting of his children by example, hurting of family by example, disrespect to fellow colleagues, lying to sponsors, faulting on bank loans due to no integrilty, hurting the team members, presenting a less than acceptable role model to children fans,............................Surely, that is enough to explain to you, why everyone hates Vick............and always will.............Try to ignore your hate for white people and think about all that Vick did, the last six years....................He deserves nothing...........................Since he is, at present, suspended and not life banned yet, it still remains whether he will be re-instated or not....................I hope he never returns...................

Typical numbskulled athlete. I hope some animal loving, vigilante type gives this POS his due. I know karma will bite his asss good n hard, but he deserves even more than karma can do. I hope no greedy teams sign him.

#25 OneLuv, your post is a thinly disguised racist rant in its own right. As far as people ragging on MV's grammar, its fair game and important to bring to light the fact that these athletes are simply not getting a decent education and many of them are being allowed WAY too much leeway in their poor manners and morals, as well.

#27 Open Minded Person must not know the meaning of "open minded", as they are nothing but a racist trying to incite more racism with their narrow, unintelligent, small mind.

I could care less what race MV is..., he is simply a poor excuse of a human being. He couldn't even buy a house for himself or his MOTHER and just pay for it outright, after all the money he made - that is just plain STUPID.
