"I would argue it's a chicken egg if it has a chicken in it. If a kangaroo laid an egg from which an ostrich hatched, that would surely be an ostrich egg, not a kangaroo egg. By this reasoning, the first chicken did indeed come from a chicken egg, even though that egg didn't come from chickens."

I'm sorry. What was the answer again?

A pullet surprise conclusion.

right, ralph -


he only gets laid once

I always said it was the egg that came first!

As it happens, I didn't listen to all of Hillary's testimony yesterday. Thanks for reprinting the highlights.

Ok, but why did it cross the road?

The rooster came first.

The egg and the chicken that results are genetically the same animal, merely maturing as time passes (as we all must) (maybe the women more than we guys).
The organism that lays the egg is related, but genetically disparate from the egg that results.
Hope this clears the matter up.
Huh? I didn't say?
The egg came first.
