Cute, then Overwhelming Cynicism

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

You've heard that one. Actual scientific debate would seem sort of silly, but kind of in a no harm, no foul way. The only harm would be pure waste of scienific resources and intellectual energy, since even if you come up with an "answer," it means zip.

Well, CNN is reporting on a debate that was apparently done officially. It's all harmless silliness until you get to the closing paragraph (which is usually some contrary opinion to re-tease the debate back open).

Here it is:

The debate, which may come as a relief to those with argumentative relatives, was organized by Disney to promote the release of the film "Chicken Little" on DVD.

Gross.

What's next? A scientific study examining the truth of the adage "he who smelt it, dealt it" paid for by Paramount promoting Howard Stern in "Fartman?"

Never has a country which has had so much and is so rich spent so much money, time and energy on so much irrelevant bullshit.
