Fortune cookies are always fun: the glib sayings, the dubious 'lucky' numbers. But what about when I'm not eating Chinese food or in the mood for a cookie after my meal? How about having a fortune inside of something other than a cookie, like eggs!

And, instead of fortunes maybe there could be terrible egg-puns, making you and your guests into wisecracks after dinner. Satisfy your craving for high cholesterol and terrible puns by hollowing out eggs, inserting a few clever egg-sayings and make your own wisecrack fortune eggs!

Enough talk, let's get cracking!

Step 1: tools + materials

  • sewing needle
  • pokey tool
  • cup
  • eggs

To hollow eggs simply poke a small hole in each end of the egg with the sewing needle, making one opening slightly larger than the other.
Then insert the needle all the way into the egg and stir the insides to break up the yolk, this will make the egg easier to blow out.
<p>wow the blowing of that egg is fantastic</p>
Very punny
This reminds me of a project my class was doing with egg shells, we were all supposed to bring in and empty egg, and my dad used a little shop vac to blow out the whites and yoke. Also, to this day I have no clue what we were going to do with the shells cause I got suspended and the teacher gave my empty egg to someone else &gt;.&gt; <br><br> Moral to this story, you can't go wrong with a shop vac ;)<br>
I put an omlett recipie:
My egg pun:<br><br>Ain't you glad this wasn't a cookie, and a chicken didn't lay this saying? I replaced a yolk with a joke!
Awesome, I love terrible puns! I drive my girlfriend and my daughter crazy with the bad jokes I make, this would be a fun way to push them closer to the edge. Of course, bringing them an omelette with the bad jokes might soften the blow and make it go over easy.
over easy. lol.
I love puns. Great job!
Wow cool! How did you make those progressive images into one image in the &quot;Bonus&quot; step and the last step?
I'd say they probably just used Paint or something. Just copy-pasted the image over.
don't think so...but maybe<br>
Oh you're talking about a GIF image. I can't see any GIF image. Maybe my browser or something.
Thanks!<br /> It's an animated GIf assembled in Photoshop, <a href="http://youtu.be/Z93Z1v5dypE">here's how it's done</a>
Clever &amp; funny!<br>
Love the humor! Super idea! Thanks for sharing. I will add this to my family fun.
I don't know how long you've been sitting on this idea, but it's quite a project. Dorky + crafty + high potential for deliciousness = eggcellence.
Great new project, 'saurus! Just don't let your success go huevo-ver your head.
Yolk quiero Taco Bell!<br><br>Oeuf - Wiedersehen
