Well, see, then it keeps getting weirder...because...if a cock can lay an egg, how can it lay an egg containing a SERPENT?

Oy.

And even weirder still why would it have the top half of a chicken and the bottom half of a snake rather than being well-blended? I wonder if one killed and roasted it and then looked at the cutlet on one's plate whether that would still turn a person to stone.

That is so odd. I never thought about it before, but that is a great question. Thanks for making me think.
