chicken head
Jump to user comments
The Commodore Business Machines logo, which strongly
resembles a poultry part. Rendered in ASCII as "C=". With
the arguable exception of the Amiga, Commodore's computers
are notoriously crocky little bitty boxes (see also
PETSCII). Thus, this usage may owe something to Philip
K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" (the
basis for the movie "Blade Runner"; the novel is now sold
under that title), in which a "chickenhead" is a mutant with
below-average intelligence.
