Chicken is a templating system written in Javascript using jQuery to do structured DOM substitutions. This type of templating is sometimes called "callback templating", because instead of the template system pushing values into a template, you specify a set of triggers or events which fire a callback, the result of which is the template operation.

Chicken, WTF?!?!?

Well, here is how it happened.

  <me> Hey, what should I call my callback templating module?
  <chris> Hmmm
          ... callback templating
            ... Pull templates
              ... pullet -> 'Pull it'
                ... pullet being a term for "Chicken"
                  ... Call it Chicken!

So if you don't like the name, blame Chris.
