The Chicken or The Egg?

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? It’s an ancient paradox that has confounded humans for at least 2,000 years. Both Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye the Science Guy say that the egg came first, when a creature that was kind of like a chicken, but not quite a chicken, laid an egg that hatched into an actual chicken, thanks to a tiny mutation. On the other hand, some researchers say that in order to form, chicken eggs need a specific protein that’s only found in chicken ovaries, so score one for the chickens coming first. The great philosopher Aristotle danced around the question by saying that both the chicken and the egg have always existed. Come on dude, take a stand. Now you can argue the question at the Morning Toast while enjoying the brand new “Which Came First Benedict,” which features two toasted English muffins topped with poached eggs and fried chicken. (Or is that fried chicken and poached eggs?) Either way, there’s no question that the new Morning Toast menu is awesome! So, come in for a great breakfast, a morning cocktail, and an eggcellent philosophical debate. Cheers to morning!
