Today is World Egg Day

A fried egg.

Eggs are excellent. There are very few meals that cannot be improved with the addition of an egg. To celebrate this day I present you with the The Order of Eggs, which are the best ways to enjoy an egg as determined by people.

  1. Fried
  2. Boiled
  3. Poached
  4. Scrambled

It is ironic that something as wonderful as an egg should come from something as creepy as a chicken. I am of course aware that other creatures lay eggs but it’s the humble hen’s egg that’s the most satisfying (also as determined by people).

Many US presidents have commented about eggs:

The egg is the ultimate creation in nature, I keep one in my hat at all times.” — George Washington.

I hope our constitution is like an egg; oval and eggy.” — Abraham Lincoln.

Leave my trousers alone and fry me an egg instead, Monica.” — Bill Clinton.

What’s an egg?” — Donald Trump.

One shocking fact is that every US president has said the word ‘egg’.

Happy World Egg Day, everyone. Go on, you know you want one.
