Unexpected Chrome console.log() with jQuery

Given
<style>
	ui li { color: red;}
	.emphasis { color: green;}
</style>

<ul>
	<li>hello</li>
	<li>hello 2</li>
</ul>

<script>
	console.log($('ul li'))
	$('ul li').addClass('emphasis');
	console.log($('ul li'))
</script>

Open in new window

and looking in Chrome's console I would expect to see
jQuery1.html:19[<li>¿hello¿</li>¿, <li>¿hello 2¿</li>¿]
jQuery1.html:21[<li class=¿"emphasis">¿hello¿</li>¿, <li class=¿"emphasis">¿hello 2¿</li>]

Open in new window

Instead I see
jQuery1.html:19[<li class=¿"emphasis">¿hello¿</li>¿, <li class=¿"emphasis">¿hello 2¿</li>¿]
jQuery1.html:21[<li class=¿"emphasis">¿hello¿</li>¿, <li class=¿"emphasis">¿hello 2¿</li>]

Open in new window

Why is this?

clear all cache, put an alert before the second console.log and then see what log comes in the console log

Thank you gurvinder372. I tried the same in Firefox with Firebug and received the expected results.
