What shape could be more simple looking than an Egg? Nature recognized that the Egg was eggsactly the type of ineggspensive, eggstremely simple container needed for many housing situations.
With an eggsternal shell that would survive eggstreme conditions (barring eggsplosions), the egg was an eggsellent choice where eggsessive sharp edges were undesirable for the eggspectant mother when it was time to eggspell it.
I like eggs, and have written two other egg stories:
Precisely and Eggs-actly – simple mathematics to eggsplain the shape of an egg, plus an arithmetic lesson from Calvin and Hobbes.
Much Ado About the Devil – a bit about what you need to know about the devil and deviled eggs.

It is a well-documented fact that guys will not ask for directions. This is a biological thing. This is why it takes several million sperm cells… to locate a female egg, despite the fact that the egg is, relative to them, the size of Wisconsin.

The codfish lays ten thousand eggs,
The homely hen lays one;
The codfish never cackles,
To tell you when she’s done;
And so we scorn the codfish,
While the humble hen we prize;
Which only goes to show you,
That it pays to advertise.

The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed.
– Martina Navratilova –
Out of love I made you a cake. Also out of milk, eggs, flour, sugar, and vanilla.

This recipe is certainly silly. It says to separate the eggs, but it doesn’t say how far to separate them.
