Are People Really This Idiotic?

Okay, I'm not saying I've never had issues while baking, once in a while it doesn't quite work perfectly but seriously, if I knew someone who was that inept at cracking a freaking egg I would banish them from the kitchen forever. Sheesh. And $20 for that? Give me a break.

Wow. Um... Other than a tragic dropping on the floor or three (which I don't think the EZ Cracker can prevent)... Wow.

Tam said...

I know. The kidlet and I seem compelled to stop and watch it everytime. It's like a train wreck. We just shake our heads at the people who would pay $20 for that.

I actually found a review on YouTube that says it does work, but my point is why would anyone NEED it to work. LOL

I also like how they show both brown AND white eggs, to be completely egg PC.

Eyre said...

Okay, is it bad that I watched that and thought, "I could see that in a BDSM scene"?

Tam said...

LOL That would be a nut cracker Eyre.

Lily said...

Why the hell didn't I come up with this money making idea? You know there are countless idiots out there calling in for their EZ Cracker. Darn it!!

"Uh-oh! Crunchy eggshells ruin those muffins!"

ROFL! I don't know why, but that just tickled me. (Well, maybe I do know why, but I'm too much of a lady to say it. *g*)

I am so going to buy this. That way I don't have to use my ShamWow to clean up all those messy egg yokes. Of course, if I didn't do all my baking while still wearing my Snuggie I wouldn't be so clumsy.

Tam said...

I know Lily. I can't believe I let all these brilliant ideas get snapped up by someone else.

"but I'm too much of a lady to say it"

Bwahahahaha

Too funny Stephani. ROFL My Mom actually bought a slap chop for my daughter. "You're gonna love my nuts" Vince's classic line kills me.

K. Z. Snow said...

I hearted Vince until he got into that sordid boxing match with a prostitute.

Tam said...

Yeah, that was pretty low class.

Tracy said...

Seriously? My 7 year old cracks eggs perfectly...and has since she was 5. If she can do it how stupid does someone have to be to buy this? lol OMG that's funny.

Tam said...

Exactly Tracy. If you're that useless in the kitchen you shouldn't even be there. LOL

Sweet Vernal Zephyr said...

Oh Tam... honey-the burn at my place- kinda priceless. LOL

And I'm with Eyre on this. Why is my mind always in the bondage gutter?!

Tam said...

You "ladies" (and I use the term loosely) are awful. (Must be why I like you so much. :-D)

Eyre said...

Sweet, obviously great minds think alike!

Jordan Castillo Price said...

OMG, I'm the one making that yuk-face like the lady in the blue shirt when I find eggshells in my food. My ex ALWAYS left egg fragments in the food. Always. I thought it was because he insisted on cracking the egg on the edge of things, which made the shell burst into tiny fragments, whereas I always whacked the egg against something blunt, which left a cleaner crack.

Yes. I do think about really dumb things. A lot.

Jordan Castillo Price said...

And also I don't believe the hard-boiled egg would just fly out like that. Though if it did, I would probably buy one.

Tam said...

Well, you could always get him this as a "lovely parting gift" Jordan. LOL I usually crack on a blunt surface as well.

Tam said...

It depends on the egg Jordan. I believe my grandmother said that a newly laid egg will cause you more problems than an older egg. She would always use those to boil because the membrane sticks more to a new egg and you get the messy disaster which we've all had. So if the membrane is stuck on, no amount of fancy equipment is going to make it come off clean. And if it's not stuck on, I don't need to pay $20 to get the shell off.

Sweet Vernal Zephyr said...

Very true! An older egg hardboiled will cleave from its shell very easily compared to a fresh egg. ALSO add a little baking soda in with your boiling egg water and VIOLA ... WAYYYYY cheaper than the $20 EZ CRACKER. ;)

Jordan Castillo Price said...

I did not know the baking soda trick, but I did know the old egg trick. I used to buy eggs from a farmer who (I think) had Asperger's because he was insanely smart, plus he never picked up on facial and body clues that he'd just talked with you way too long. So I know ALL ABOUT EGGS from him.

Jordan Castillo Price said...

I like the "parting gift" idea!

I need to plan ahead to let my eggs get old. Maybe next time I'll buy 2 dozen.

Tam said...

I didn't know that baking soda trick either. What an educational thread. :-)

Everything you wanted to know about eggs but were afraid to ask. LOL
