Vanilla JavaScript Chicken or Egg?

— 2 minute read

I saw this a couple of days ago and thought it was finally a solution to this ancient problem!

Who was there first the chicken or the egg?

JavaScript Chicken or Egg Sort permalink

var array = ['🥚', '🐔'];
console.log(array.sort());
// (2) ["🐔", "🥚"]

There you go the answer is Chicken!

But let's dive a bit deeper and see how this then worked out for the egg?

var array2 = ['🐔', '🐣', '🐤', '🥚'];
console.log(array2.sort());
// (4) ["🐔", "🐣", "🐤", "🥚"]

Hmm weird? Yes this definitely complicates things right?

What are your opinions on this Chicken vs. Egg complication?
