The chicken looked at, its beady eyes taking in every last detail. Finally, satisfied with itself, it tilted it's head and clucked. I took this to be my que, and asked:
"So, which came first then: The chicken or the egg?"
After a long pause, it again tilted it's head. I waited with baited breath. But... nothing.
It was then I remembered chickens can't speak, and I felt very stupid.
