Poll: What color eggs do you usually buy?
lawrence · 18 years ago
I don't believe in god, so does that mean I shouldn't eat eggs, or I shouldn't care what colour they are?
I'm not sure how I don't care.
Do I really not care in the way that god intended? Or do I not care in some other way?
I guess I need more options.
aaaaaaaaaactually you CAN get green eggs. it all depends on where the chicken gets the coloring from. i've learned a lot from my coworker w0t has a farm - some eggs are green or blue (on the shell, not the white or yolk) because they get the coloring from the chicken's bile. brown eggs get the coloring from the blood :)
heeee. I've had that in my head since this poll popped up. Plus, I sang it on the wall the other day.
Wouldn't it make more sense to each chocolate eggs?
Doesn't most cake contain eggs?
Isn't it nice to see eggs of different colors living together in harmony?
is that why the rabbi is so insistent that I get white eggs instead of brown? I thought it was just him being weird, like the time he freaked out because he doesn't like mayonnaise in his egg salad. it wasn't a matter of kashrut, it was a matter of him being a nebbische

I can have eggs in like cake, cookies and frech toast (The chocolate cake thing is a joke I have with an old freind). As a child I hated eggs. I don't think it was a bad allergy, but I don't have a tollerance to it like the one I built up to Penut Butter and cats.
doesnt kashrut say you're not supposed to have any blood though? so that would explain why no brown eggs.
exactly. I didn't know the brown was from blood until now. I had always assumed it was just the rabbi being weird. the mayonnaise thing was an example of him having non-kashrut-related food weirdnesses.
I think this was just confusion based on the wording, maybe. At the end of your post saying that it wasn't kashrut etc, etc, about the mayo also seemed like it could be the conclusion of the message based on the new info on the brown eggs.
I'm not saying that very well. But it can also be read as you saying that's why he objected to the eggs...not kashrut but...
So yeah...the fun nature of multiple ways to read text! :)

I usually buy white but I like brown better for some reason. And I like local organic stuff too! We used to have our own chicken that laid eggs. That was sweet.
White eggs are the only eggs that are ever on sale around here.

I don't like regular type eggs. I like chocolate eggs. :)
I always wonder what the first person to eat an egg was thinking. "Oh look! Something fell out of this large bird! I think I'll eat it!" *giggle*
My guess would be they saw some other critter do it. Where do you think "monkey see, monkey do" came from?......great, now all i can think of is a monkey on a seadoo.

I'm pretty sure the no-mayonnaise things had more to do with his having good taste buds ;-)
That is interesting... I read recently that brown eggs come from dark colored chickens and white from light. Hmmmm....
...and there is much evidence that what I just said is the case, including here: http://www.mrbreakfast.com/ask.asp?askid=23
Here is a good article with more references on egg color

*shrug* that's just what the dude @ work said. i mean. no where is a Robin blue :D
As long as we are on the topic.
Which came first the chicken or the egg?

The egg that the first chicken hatched from was not laid by a chicken.
just to be contrary...The chicken, why would God make an egg with nothing to sit on it?
A chicken is simply an egg's device for making another egg.
