The yolk's on you, or some other weak egg pun
on 14 September 2015
If you’re looking to play a joke, you’re not going to fool anyone into thinking this is a hen’s egg, not with the one I was sent anyway. Firstly it’s significantly smaller than your average supermarket medium egg, and secondly it’s got a clear raised line running all the way around it.
If it didn’t have that clear manufactured mould line, you might think from a distance it was a very small hen’s egg, but then as soon as you touch the rubbery you’d realise- it feels like a very firm squash ball that hasn’t been warmed up. Also when it first arrived, the one I got had a dusty powder all over it, which started coming off on anything I bounced it on.
It’s not bouncy enough to work as a bouncy toy either. Its firm structure means that the ovoid shape dictates the direction of the bounce and it’ll go just about anywhere except back up.
I can see how it would be a good tool for actual nesting hens, and very useful for the egg-and-spoon race on school sports day. Unfortunately as I’m not a primary school teacher who keeps hens, I slightly regret spending my pennies on this, but at least it wasn’t many pennies.
