The Chicken
Or
The Egg?


I think my nine year old daughter has solved the age old conundrum.

"Dad, which came first the chicken or the egg?" she asked.

I rolled my eyes inwardly thinking, "Or no, now I have to play some sort of meaningless word game with her, or maybe this is gonna be some dumb joke, or something."

"The chicken," I answered, deciding to bravely plunge ahead anyway.

"Right," she exclaimed. "I thought about it. It has to be the chicken, because if it was the egg, it would have died, because it wouldn't have had anyone to keep it warm."

There you go. There is definately both logic and wisdom in that answer.

Problem solved.
