Mixing them with marrowbone will do you no good at all.



autolycus: Cf. Berryman & Berryman, "We Don't Talk about That":



Aunt Peg thinks that she's a hen, but we don't talk about that

Clucks all day to Uncle Ben, but we don't talk about that

He so loves that laugh of Peg's. Digs her soul and digs her legs.

Says beside he needs the eggs, but we don't talk about that.



alanabit: It is not only in German that eggs are slang for what balls are slang for in English, but also in Russian & Hebrew. Naughty Russian children sing:



Po ulitse khodila

Bol'shaya krokodila.

Ona, ona, golodnaya byla.



Uvidela frantsuza

I skhvatila za puza.

Ona, ona, golodnaya byla.



Uvidela kitaytsa

I skhvatila za [yaytsa].

Ona, ona, golodnaya byla.



Along the street walked a big (whimsically female) crocodile. She, she was a hungry one. She saw a Frenchman & grabbed him by the belly.... She saw a Chinaman and grabbed him by the [eggs, but usually some other word is substituted as a tease].



In Yiddish, IIRC, the Hebrew "beytsim" (eggs) has spawned a derivative, "beytismer", meaning a macho type. It is not a compliment.

Jenny O, that's just a slight variant of somethin' my folks used to come up with once in a while:

Six O'clock, and the whistle blew;
Out of the boxcar the hobo flew;
    And he said:
If I had some ham, I'd have some ham and eggs'
          If I had some eggs.

I had eggs scrambled with smoked salmon in a B&B outside of Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland (just before you turn off to Coliaste Ide, for those of you who might know the area). I try to have reindeer sausage whenever I'm North of 60 (or whenever it's available). REAL butter is the kind made on farms from fresh cream, not the sort made en masse in dairy factories -- salted or un, either one is good.

Add to it a big pot of true Kona or Jamacia Blue Mountain, thich artery-clogging cream, fresh orange juice, some fresh fruit...perhaps freshly picked (and washed) blackberries with clotted cream....

Twilight zone moment? I had put some eggs on to boil......got completely engrossed in Jerry's Kitchen Table thread and forgot I'd done so ( hey, it's my age, k?) .....finally came out of the thread and saw this at the top, just in time to save the water in my eggs from boiling away completely. Mudcat, fun, educational and occasionally saves you from setting fire to the kitchen.

Thanks Peace ..... bought some coddlers at a yard sale some time back. The only way I'll cook an egg is to coddle them. Just put in lots of ground pepper with the egg and put the coddler in for a bit.

It's (at least used to be - haven't been in a long time) on the corner of Mt. Royal and St. Urbain streets - a holdover from the days when the neighbourhood was a nexus of the Jewish community. Sunday mornings would see line-ups a block long for breakfast or brunch, the only meals served. On the menu - fresh squeezed orange juice, eggs (any way you like 'em) with a side of bacon or sausage and the best part - the world's best home fries. Also famous for their world renowned mishmash, which is an omelet filled with fried onions, peppers, salami and hot dogs. But the best was what I usually ordered, which was the Beauty's special - lox, cream cheese, sweet onion and tomato served on a toasted St. Viateur St. bagel - to die for.

If you ever make it out this way I'll spring for a trip to Beauty's, you'll love it.

Little old lady, deperately poor, goes to little neighborhood grocery. They know her there, and always allow her to buy what she asks in whatever quantity. So it is that she sets out to return to her tiny apartment with a bag containing a bottle of ketchup and two eggs. As she passes an alley, a drunk staggers out, face turned downward, and bumps into her, knocking the bag from her hand. The bag and contents all shatter on the sidewalk. The drunk looks down at the remains, then up at the lady. "Don't cry, lady", he says; "It wouldn't have lived anyhow; it's eyes were too far apart."
