My brother had this discussion with his co-counselor and a camper:
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
One of them (co-counselor or camper) said the egg came first. Why? Because you eat eggs for breakfast in the morning and chicken for dinner at night.
My brother countered with the fact that in the gemara, it says we start the day from the night before. Therefore, our chicken for dinner signifies that the chicken came before the egg.
The real question then becomes, when do you eat dinner? In the winter, the chicken came before the egg, no question. But what about in the summer, when it gets dark waaaay after dinner time?
A more pressing question is, if the early bird gets the worm, what happens to the early worm?
