In the "chicken - egg" question, it is clear that the egg is a chicken egg; and you can apply that concept to any other egging creature, to wit: "which came first, the turtle or the egg?", etc - same question, same answer.

Not to me - For one, I've eaten plenty of eggs that weren't chicken eggs. update: but yes I see your point.

Ah well... eating and debunking a philosophical question mix somehow, but they are not the same...
