The Egg Family


Father, Mother, and Junior have egged me on to do this post about them. My ideas were a bit scrambled and I didn’t know eggzactly what to do, but I poached this idea from a long eggo post.

The sunny side up about this whole thing is that the yolk is on them because I’m the one having the fun.

You may notice that the big daddy of all eggs is green with envy. He wanted to be like the others, but his wife, the mother egg, got browned off with all his complaining.  Her baby is browned off too, but as it turned out later, he was all bluster on the outside and runny guts on the inside. Father Egg always said Junior was coddled too much, but he still gave him his benedict – shun.

“Remember that we’re all the same on the inside. Our outer shell may be different but, for better or worse, we’re all whites on the inside,” Father Egg said.
“Yeah and a bit of yellow belly. That comes from being destined to be a chicken,” Mother Egg said.

Father Egg said, “I know I should never have left Denver and the other omelettes. You are the most deviled egg I’ve ever met. I know you think that was a wise crack you made, but in the end that crack will be your demise.”

“Fiddle faddle,” said Mother Egg. “Trying to be so hard boiled. You really are just a shell of a man.”

“Be careful, Mother,” said Father Egg. “You think I’m just over easy, but I know egg-I who was too eggcitable, and was always foaming at the mouth until his people had the idea of whipping him up into a lemon meringue pie.”

“That won’t happen to me,” said Mother Egg. “I’m just going to set here and write my memoirs. Someday omeletters will be in the museum archives and I’ll be famous. Junior can help me.”

“Oh no,” clucked Junior. “I’m too much of a chicken.”

“All right,” said Father Egg, “It’s time for some more yolks. Did you hear the one about the guy who went into the restaurant and asked what the specials were. The waiter said, “I recommend the cold tongue sandwich.”

“What?!” the guy said. “Me? Eat something that someone else has had in their mouth?”

“Oh, pardon me,” said the waiter. “Well, let’s see. How about an egg then?”

And so it went until they all cracked up and took a flying leap into the frying pan.

It turned out that big daddy turned out to be twice the man anyone thought he was. Here he is in the bowl. He had an eggstra yolk to tell, but we never got to hear it.

  2. That was so much fun to read. I never thought that eggs would also talk to each other. I think to have a scrambled egg for breakfast now and I will talk to it, but I don´t think it will talk back to me.

  9. This was the king of egg puns!! WELL done for sure, and reading it was over easy with a tinge of runny eyes, because I was sad to see the Father Egg finally cracked and opened (but impressive, with the two yokes). A double joke yoke for sure.

  11. Okay, I’m not going to crack another pun to match those already on the plate 🙂 but it’s quite cool to find an egg with two yolks. Don’t think I’ve seen one.

    • Oh, but you couldn’t resist, could you, Adele? Haha. Cracking a pun. The two yolks are not that uncommon in a farmhouse, usually, for eggzample, when the new layers are sorting themselves out, but of course you won’t find those in the store-bought eggs. Those all have to be eggzactly the same size. You’d probably have to pay eggstra for farm eggs. I bet you didn’t think so many egg-puns eggzisted.
