This is Charles Chickens. He aspires to become a radio spokesperson, but unfortunately, he lives in the middle of nowhere, with no radio signal.

So, to keep his voice crisp, he reads aloud the only sensible text in his home: The extensive collection of Charles Dickens novels left behind by his mother.

His mother, being the dyslexic chicken farmer she was, came across a bookstore window display that featured Charles Dickens novels. She misread the name to be "Charles Chickens", the name of her late husband, and used her saved money to buy all the novels, thinking these were left for her as a mourning gift.

When his mother died, Charles Chickens was left behind the novels, and the entire chicken farm. Sadly, the chickens do not appreciate his voice, so they wear earmuffs.
