As you get older, you learn things that take a lot of fun out of life. When I was a kid, I used to love the logic of the question, “which came first, the chicken or the egg?”
In a lesson on “thinking outside the box”, the question was posed and everyone began debating whether the chicken or the egg came first. Then someone spoke up and ruined it all.
“Reptiles have been around longer than birds, and many reptiles lay eggs, therefore the egg came first.”
So there you have it. Most people assume that egg is a chicken egg, but the question never says it. So anytime someone throws that question at you, go ahead… tell them the egg and tell them why.
