Blog: You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs

Catherine Sleep | 17 December 2004

Since men and their shortcomings or otherwise are the topic of the day, here’s a suggestion from the British Egg Industry Council designed to help the poor critters cope with making themselves a humble omelette.

Cath MacDonald from the BEIC said: “The majority of omelette SOS calls are from men, who clearly don’t have a clue in the kitchen. Knowing how most men think, rather than tell them just how easy it was, we thought we’d find a really complicated way to show something really simple!”

Here goes:

2E + 25mlH20 + 0.25gNacl) + (6.5n (f) x 25.5cm (d) = 2193.75ncm) + ↑   = PO

The Explanation
(2 eggs + 25ml water + 0.25 salt)  +  (6.5 newtons (force) x 25.5 (distance) = 2193.75 newton cm) +  ↑  (heat) = (PO) Perfect Omelette.

So now you know. What could be easier?
