    But wouldn't the chicken have by reason of necessity needed to be a Rooster? Hence, the song remains the same. Which came first, the CHICKEN (not Rooster) or the egg.
    We already KNEW the answer. Genetics show that all of mankind came from the same original pair...as all animals. The Rooster came first, followed by some chickens, followed by some eggs, followed by mankind enjoying the goodness of egg and chicken forever. By accident? Ha! By design. Why ice floats when it freezes and why flowers don't smell like poop.
    AND why it is that the ROOSTER crows the morning in. By design. Hens are always pecking on each other anyway.

      Can 't you just laugh at the joke instead of having to dissect for a foolish agenda? The joke is FUNNY, man. You're not going to be less of a strutting rooster by laughing! No wonder you can't keep an egg....peck THIS!
