All I can say is I am glad I do not eat eggs!

EEEEEEEW. Though I have to say the guy who did the article made it sound like all eggs are fertilized, and that isn't the case. But still. ITA. No eggs for me, thanks. I only have 3 left in the fridge and I'm not touching them. I think I'll toss them when I can get to them under the veggies on that shelf.

I didn't think so, bekajoi... they did describe how the clerk told them that's what was "special" about them.<br><br><br><br>
I saw more than enough fertilized eggs when I worked as a cook at Denny's. They weren't supposed to be fertilized either. They weren't quite as "far along" as this egg was though.

haha, oops! I didn't remember that thread. I don't think I even looked at the link that time, I just knew how gross fertilized eggs were from experience. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">

It's called "Balut" (pronounced like Bah-loot) originates in the Phillipines.<br><br>
Even most filipinos think it's gross.<br><br>
You crack the top off the egg and suck it out eating the whole thing (muck and all)<br><br>
I am nauseous just thinking about it.<br><br><br><br>
Balut is a fertilized egg allowed to almost fully develop.

How sad! The chick is actually kind of cute. I mean, if you disregard all the slime. I can't believe people actually eat fertilized eggs!

I don't have such a big problem with those pro-life photos, and I'm not really pro-life myself. The main problem with them, according to some, is that they guilt women who are already conflicted about having to abort. The same cannot be said about eating eggs.

Speaking of the pro-lifers who do that... without warning... I think that's just wrong. Don't trick someone into opening up a page of photos like that. (what if there are kids in the room!?)<br><br><br><br>
Blah. Some people. (thanks for the warning, by the way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> )

Sent it to my husband (who is still lacto-ovo veg), and I swear he wouldn't eat for about 12 hours. When he did, it was mashed potatoes. Plain. That's all his stomach could handle.<br><br><br><br>
There's still eggs in the fridge (at least they're from the local organic egg farm... we're lucky out here), but he hasen't yet touched them.<br><br><br><br>
*sigh*<br><br><br><br>
I had ducks as a kid-- hatched them myself (ok, not literally, but you get the picture). This really hit home hard... wrong on SO many levels. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:">
