Finally, we have an answer to a question that's been asked a million times. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? The answer is the egg of course. The proof is so obvious, I'm almost ashamed to have wondered about it at all. For those to lazy to read the article for themselves, here's why. If a kangaroo laid an egg and an ostrich hatched from it, it'd be an ostrich egg and not a kangaroo egg. So since the first chicken hatched from an egg, the chicken egg must have come before the chicken. Besides, kangaroos don't lay eggs silly.
