This really doesn't look like an encyclopedia article to me. --Larry Sanger


The reason I put it on here was because I believe that it has become firmly incorporated into the English langauage. - Jamesbrowne


Well, the pseudo-problem, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" is a common bit of folk wisdom (or whatever you want to call it). Maybe there should be an article about it. But the current article at The Chicken or the Egg just doesn't look like an encyclopedia article at all--that's my problem. I don't know quite what to do with it. --LMS


Maybe start an entry on Folk conundrum / Folk conundrums and make The Chicken or the Egg a sub-page?

Other examples: -fish or cut bait? -sh-- or get off the pot? -sh--, pi--, or go blind?


If there's a known history to it, I think that would definitely give it a push towards being page-worthy. I don't know that the less common interpretation is worth being mentioned, though. --Belltower
