    Default Fowl of Fame?

    Many famous philosophical conundrums employ fowl in their symbology.

    For example:
    The chicken and the egg -- which came first?
    If a rooster lays his egg on the exact center of the roof, does it balance?

    By my reckoning, there's one that's been overlooked for an embarrassing while too long. It's typically used in the same context where you would point to someone's shirt then flick their nose.

    Truly a forgotten perplexion, this question has brought kindergartners and teenagers to tears, surely as a result of their inevitable failure to fathom all its implications.

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    I'd say it's high time we pay it its dues and induct it into this hall of fame... of sorts.

    -----

    Or is it perhaps too soon?

    I can't help myself but notice that the other two examples involve an egg just as well as a chicken.

    The egg obviously came first, being the first bearer of the DNA.

    That was similar to my calculation.
    But then the teacher complained that it wasn't fair of me to use a non-chicken egg. So I said, well the chicken evolved. It came from an egg lain by an animal what was almost chicken -- chicken enough to lay one, the first chicken egg, thence birthing the first chicken, but not chicken enough to be called a chicken.
    But then one wonders if it would be called a chicken egg just because what emerged was chicken. Maybe we call it chicken anscestor egg.
    Then one wonders why he wasted so much time trying to find the right name for something when it doesn't really matter because the constituents of the egg and it's contents are entirely unaffected by our name for them.

    Dontcha wish more people understood this The Flak? I can think of a few specific examples...

    It's too late
    Gawsh I wish more people would try and decipher cryptic metaphors.

    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    Seriously. Why?

    Do you know?



    If no one understands, I'm afraid I'll lose all faith in the fidelity of lyrics.
    And I have a lot.

    Correct.
    The chicken did it to get to the other side. Nothing better to do.

    Everything is trying to get where it's going.
    Let's all muse at the profundity.

    Profundity will get you one thing: Thirty seconds closer to death.
