During the Cold War, the British Military planned to deploy a series of nuclear landmines to protect them from the Soviets in the event of a retreat from Germany. Problem was, the mines tended to freeze up in the winter, rendering them useless. The solution? Chickens. Lots of chickens.

The only reason to post this?  The image of course.  Also, a chicken heated nuclear weapon is awesome to think about.
