Not so good for egg business....

Perhaps I should issue a recall?

B.Rube just cracked an egg for his omelette this morning and found a formed embryo in there.
"ugh, there's a whole chicken head in there", he said.
Kinda kills your appetite for eggs, non?
Apparently not, as he continues making his breakfast after going out to collect new eggs.

I know exactly when the error happened. I have contacted my recent customers and warned them of the potential of little chicks inside their breakfast burritos.

And I'm kinda excited cuz it means we're going to have babies!!

B.Rube scrambled up the head??

How exactly did the error happen?
Ya gotta explain it to me...the city girl.

UGH -- I don't even have any of your delicious fresh eggs and it's freaking me out. I would absolutely die if I ever found a little chicken head in my egg. As it is -- I hate when I get the little white fuzzy blob -- eeek!!

your b.rube and my j.second definitely need to get together and make snortin' noises while they chew on their bacon and moo as they take a bite out of their burger and cluck as they gnaw on a chicken wing...

what the hell? how is it that they are so steeled against this sort of thing and yet my j. cringes watching surgeries performed by meredith grey (in spite of the fact that she's so sexy).

if that ever happens to b. rube again make sure he saves it. check out what I learned from Wikipedia:

A balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell. They are common, everyday food in some countries in Southeast Asia, such as in the Philippines, Cambodia, and Vietnam. (THIS IS WHERE IT GETS GOOD!) Popularly believed to be an aphrodisiac and considered a high-protein, hearty snack, balut are mostly sold by street vendors at night in the regions where they are available. They are often served with beer (THIS WOULD BE A SELLING POINT FOR THE BOYS FO' SHIZZLE).

Oh my Lawd.... wait until I tell B.Rube! He will most definitely start a new balut business, out of the back of the car at night. The 7/11 in Aldergrove is a hot spot, I tell you.
I got us a couple of nestfuls of eggs with partially developed embryos out in the henhouse right now. We can start Friday night.
You in?

ooooh, so very wicked said...

yeah, of course. but I hear that there is more of a calling for trunk balut near the ocean...

On Survivor...though I dont remember the season....they had a challenge where they had to be the first to chew , eat and swallow a partially developed bird egg.
By the sounds of your discription..it would have been more than just a balut.
I ga...ga...gagged just watching.
Apparently it was a native snack of this particular location. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!
