    the instructor is a chicken

    Hello,
    I have just seen this sentence in a lecture slide but I don't understand what does it really mean.
    "Example: Gray Code Counter - Test1(the instructor is a chicken)"
    Would you help me clarify it?
    Thanks for help!

    That makes no sense on its own at all. Can you post a link to the actual lecture slide? Was there a photograph to go with it? Did the test actually have anything to do with chickens?

    Colloquially, a "chicken" is a person who is scared of something, of doing something/everything or just scared.

    Thank you!
    Sorry, I can't find any link to this slide.
    Here is two images relating to it. This is a lecture about Verilog(Verilog is a Hardware Description Language) and it has nothing to do with chicken.

    Re: the instructor is a chicken

    Thank you for the slides. I still have no idea why the phrase "the instructor is a chicken" has been inserted. Perhaps a private joke? Ignore it, and move on.

    I'm with Grumpy. Move on. I don't think it has anything at all to do with the contents of the slide.
