British scientists have categorically stated that the chicken came first. Here is their science.
The lab-coated researchers have identified a protein called ovocleidin or OC-17. This protein is the key ingredient in the formation of eggshells. The catch, it is only produced in the ovaries of the pregnant hen. Based on this irrefutable science, the scientists have solved the puzzle.
It is the chicken!
I guess this means that we now need to look for another saying to express the idea of not knowing which one came first (and the fact that in the big scheme of things none of us truly care as they are both there now).
All the same, bugger!
