Chengwin and Chunk face off.

The story thus far…

A chicken falls in love with a skunk. They have a child, half-chicken, half-skunk: Chunk. Skunk abandons Chicken. Chicken puts Chunk up for adoption. Chicken meets Penguin; they fall in love. Chengwin (half-chicken, half-penguin) is born and raised with love and affection. One day, they learn that Chunk has run away from the orphanage and gone bad. Chengwin is set upon by Chunk and his posse. Chengwin and his posse defeat Chunk!

Tomorrow, one of the city’s wildest and most joyous street theatre events will return to the Lower East Side for Homecoming 2004, in which the Chengwins and the Chunks will battle for the love of Chove (half-chicken, half-dove). Come to the north corner of Houston and Lafayette St; the whistle blows at 3 pm sharp. Be there or be Chuare (half-chicken, half-square). This doesn’t suck.

– Last year, Chunk and Chengwin raced each other.
– Two years ago, Chunk and Chove almost got married!
– There is also Chabio (half-chicken, half-Fabio). He is dreamy.
– Beware of Chixon! (Half-chicken, half-Richard Nixon.)

    Thank you SO MUCH for posting this – I had never heard of Chengwin and Chunk before, but I went on Saturday and it was, hands-down, the coolest thing I have participated in since moving to NY. The parade! The giant football! The lovely Chove! It was so excellent. We walked down the street and people would shout out, “What’s going on?” and someone would respond, “Chengwin vs. Chunk!” as if that explained anything. Hilarious.
