Here's my theory: Emaciated Chicken Boy was at the Mercer Gran Prix of Cyclocross this past weekend. It was very cold and VERY muddy. I think that one of his claws got stuck in the mud and just cracked off. Then (there are a lot of dogs at 'Cross races, you see) a dog sniffed it out- dug it up, brought it down the patio for a quick snack. Apparently the dog found it to be unappetizing and left it in its present state.
