A riddle was posted on Reddit—Jokes on February 25, 2017:

Q: What’s a chicken’s favorite game in the pool?
A: Marco Pollo.



Wikipedia: Marco Polo (game)
The game Marco Polo /ˈmɑːrkoʊ ˈpoʊloʊ/ is a form of tag played in a swimming pool. The origin of the game is unknown.

Rules
One player is chosen as “It”. This player closes his or her eyes and tries to find and tag the other players without the use of vision. The player who is “It” shouts “Marco” and the other players must respond by shouting “Polo”, which “It” uses to try to acoustically locate them. If a player is tagged, then that player becomes “It.”
