Sitting on a rock eating..........

My Dad emailed me this picture. It's a long standing joke in our family. Dating back to when the kids (primarily, I) whine about what we're going to eat & the daddy suggests we sit on a rock & eat hard boiled eggs.

Well, Dad, with our ever growing family, I think you've found the perfect solution for our exciting family picnic fare........





Now that, dear friend, is "Boiled egg surprise!!" Really now, who wouldn't want a shrink-wrapped-sausage-log of boiled egg? I'm telling you, this pic just encapsulates the spirit of the shockingly fearless and occasionally hilarious inventiveness of the Japanese. I bet they even made a reeeeeeally long egg cutter to cut the thing.

Holy F**King S**T!!!!

Have you tasted them? I miss Japan I try to explain to people, how fearless they are when it comes to food. The fact that there is nothing they won't consider doing, or eating. I think all chefs should be made to spend a year there just to blow their minds.

That's...disgusting. MUTANT EGG. Already boiled egg tastes pretty close to "lurchy" as it gets...it's sort of a feat to train my mind that it's not a tasteless, slimily-textured substance from an animal's privates. But...this...
Imagine this one emerging from a chicken. I'd be freaking out.

The really long boiled egg looks interesting, is that really a egg though?
