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

tools:
  • sewing needle
  • pokey tool
  • cup
materials:
  • 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.

Step 2: Blow out eggs

Hold egg over cup or bowl with larger opening facing down.

Make a seal around the small opening of the egg with your mouth and start blowing into the egg. It will take some pressure to get the egg to come out from the shell, so be patient. If you're having trouble try reaming the openings with the needle and try again.

Step 3: Rinse insides, let dry

After all eggs have been hollowed out rinse the insides under a thin stream of water, then leave to dry.

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 >.>

Moral to this story, you can't go wrong with a shop vac ;)

My egg pun:

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.

Wow cool! How did you make those progressive images into one image in the "Bonus" 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
Oh you're talking about a GIF image. I can't see any GIF image. Maybe my browser or something.

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.
