    This is so funny! I love your photo and how you have running shoes on the egg! Hey, John, I actually saw a chicken cross the road the other day. I thought finally, I saw it. LOL I said the the man, your chicken is across the road and he replied, "Well, they ain't like dogs. The go where they want to." LOL I was disappointed I didn't have my camera with me to catch the event. Good work, Susan!

    LOL!! The chicken really looks spooked by that egg. Could it be because the egg is bigger than she is? I agree that a lot of money was squandered on that useless research. We live in a crazy world.

    Glad the scientists have finally established that it is no yolk that a chicken always comes first. Brilliant take on the age old question Susan!

    What's sad is that I just read an article in a scientific journal about this question, well really about genetics but they touched on this. Their conclusion? The Chicken. My conclusion? I wanna work for those guys.

    The chicken's foot across the red. The eggie's hand stretched to win. "I can see from your coat, my friend, you're from the other side. There's just one thing I've got to know - Can you tell me please: WHO WON?
