Chicken or the egg ?

What came first the chicken or the egg?

I personally think as far as sayings go in the English language this one is the worst. Why ? Because there is honestly is no valid question in the question. Of course the egg came first ! It is not possible for a chicken to appear out of no where instead chickens evolved from other species of birds (which evolved from reptiles).

This saying is one of my biggest pet peeves so I just had to share it.

We should use words in the this question that we actually don’t know the answer to.

For example:

What came first matter or the big bang?

What came first space or time?

What came first wealth or value?
