The Funky Chicken Test

One of the problems I see with John Searle's Chinese Room is that he is asking us to consider what I call the Funky Chicken Test:

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it might be a funky chicken.

Yes...and? Until I know for sure the chicken is in drag, it's...a duck!
