Omelet recipe printed on an egg


Dnewman's come up with a clever use for the Egg-Bot ("an open-source art robot that can draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects from the size of a ping pong ball to that of a small grapefruit"): printing an omelet recipe right onto the shell.

Omelet Recipe

27

  1. Really? People need a recipe for an omelette? (There’s only one way to make an omelette?)

    Can’t they just watch someone they know make an omelette? Or maybe watch someone in a movie, a TV show, or a restaurant make one? God forbit that they actually learn to observe, eh? Do they think that omelettes come from factories in Philadelphia, or in China? I shudder at the thought of them realizing where eggs come from.

    /make mine ‘baveuse’

    1. You do realize this isn’t supposed to be a practical suggestion for a regularly available product, right?

    2. Some people retain knowledge best when it’s written, not to mention that written language is incredibly versatile in how it’s stored and transmitted (Hey! I bet you could even print a recipe on an egg…)

  2. I knew I wouldn’t be able to follow the recipe after I cracked the egg, so I had to photocopy my egg first.

      Same as an aircraft which Michael Collins mentions in his book Carrying The Fire. The ejection procedure is written on the canopy and the first step is “Eject Canopy”.

      1. Somewhat related, and from real life.
        Microwave popcorn. #1 was Remove Plastic, #2 was Unfold Bag

        The thing is, the instructions were printed inside the folded section, so the instructions weren’t visible until after you’d already done them.

  3. To make the omelet I have to crack the egg with the recipe. But if I crack the egg I lose the recipe but then I can make the omelet. *head spins*

      Simple- it’s Schrödinger’s omelet!

  4. I think that in the future, BB should refrain from this whole “empedoclean snacks” meme.

  5. On the well-founded suspicion that no one got the joke: ‘baveuse’ means runny/not-quite-firm.

    It also means lippy.

    /and I also really suspect that there are lots of people who think omelettes are manufactured in large factories. Y’know, the same places where they manufacture Sliced Apples. (These folks use Apply computers and subscribe, but don’t read, to Make.)
