    An omelet requires a recipe? That’s a lot like needing a recipe for ‘scrambled eggs’.

    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!

    Wasn’t that recipe supposed to be titled “Last Will and Testament”? :-)

    The writing on the egg is done with a pen in a font from a group of fonts called HERSHEY. It is made to be used by a plotter which is a printer that makes marks with a pen. This plotter draws on spherical objects. See http://www.johndeckert.com/artist/eggbot.html for other examples. And also, http://www.evilmadscientist.com/article.php/eastereggs

    Why print the recipe for two servings on one egg?

    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.

      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…)

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

    Much more helpful when they try that with a chicken

  12. Kerouac says:

    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”.

        “Step 2. Troubleshooting why the canopy didn’t eject.”

        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.

    If you want to make an omelet, you’ve got to not break a few eggs.

    You’ve got to taste the eggs you’re not eating…

    The other 11 eggs in the dozen are printed with the safety warnings in eight languages.

    Can anyone tell me what comes first- the chicken or the omelette?

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

  19. PaulR says:

    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.)

    That would be fun to own.
