Plastic eggs?- I am sure the environmentalists will have a field day with that plan...

how eggciting

wow. never posted before but saw an opportunity to be "first" so FFFFFIIIIIRRRRRSSSSSTTTTT. LMAO

NEVERMIND :p

I've been to Egg Harbor, I always thought it was named because to the 450,000 bed-and-breakfast inns in the area. Who knew it was named because of a life and death battle with eggs?

First? Woo Hoo?

Fifth... uggh.

*hangs head in shame, slinks off to corner*

Invasive Zebra Mussels WBAGNFARB, but Calcium Chomping Invasive Zebra Mussels would just be silly.

Sorry, should have been "Calcium Feasting Invasive Zebra Mussels". "Calcium Chomping Invasive Zebra Mussels" would be both silly and incorrect. My basic point is that "Invasive" is going to enhance most any band name.

The first thought that popped into my head when I read that headline:

Gilda Radner as Emily Litella: "What's all this talk about saving our natural race horses?"

Maybe with all those eggs around the Wisconsin DNR was wary of poachers?

- so plastic eggs ar less polutive the the real thing?

And the battle cry heard 'round the bay: "Let's get cracking!"

I wonder if the Subservient Chicken will show up for the event or just lay low.

JUST IN:
Due to high levels of folic acid this weeks Boston Tea Party re-enactment will now be referred to as "The Boston Low-Sulfide Soy based beverage Party". And the term 'Party' is misleading, it'll be more of a quick get together rather than a party really. Aww who am I kidding? It'll just be me and my friend Eugene.

Let's just hope that the Great State of New Jersey picks up on this idea. I'd love to see re-enactments explaining the origins of the names "Seacaucus" and "Ho-Ho-Kus".

They are sure to be plenty of people with egg on their (not they're) face.

And I didn't know eggs had breeding grounds?!?

Had we known this would occur, we would never have used up all our egg puns on this.

Well now.... how many want to participate in the reenactment of the naming of the town of BlueBall, Pa? Wait, hold your hands up higher!... Ok, then, how about the reenactment of the naming of Intercourse, PA... ah...thought so!!

"We've asked that real eggs not be used, and we will be prepared to enforce that request," Hansen said.

Villager #1: *whispering* Ok, did each of you bring your 20 pounds of Eggstro'dnaire?

Villagers #2-472: Aye aye, sir!

Villager #1: Here he comes men...wait for it...wait for it...

Hansen *strides around, trying to look tough*

Villager #1: Hey Hansen! Enforce THIS!!! Launch!!!

Hansen: YIPE! *runs like a scared little girl*

Passerby #1: This is eggzactly what I was afraid would happen.

Passerby #2: You've got to be yolking.

I wish I could go to that. I'd take lots of pictures.


To put in my albumen.

"Organizer George Bisbee initially said he wanted to use 3,000 real eggs to re-enact the fight, although he later said he had EGG-ZAGERATED the number."

It's going to be egg-stra fun. ;)

In Ohio we have a couple of locations whose names could use a little re-enactin':

Chagrin Falls
Peepee Creek

I believe that the combatants were told: "Don't fire till you see the whites of their. . ." Oh, nevermind.

When this is all over, somebody's bound to note that the losers got "scrambled".

The winners will say that it was "over easy"

Veterans of past re-enactments are thought to be "Hard Boiled".

Spectator cooks will join the fray with a shrug, saying: "If you can't beat 'em. . ."

Okay, I'll stop now.

what happens when the seagulls eat the plastic eggs? Who is going to scoop all the plastic eggs out of the water? I just can't see plastic eggs as being an eggsellent idea.

Ok so its monday morning dont throw eggs at me

Oooooh! FOOD FIGHT!!!

How about Shinnecock?

Why plastic eggs? How about big rocks?

Why not golf balls?

Since Steve mentioned Superman, I was interested to learn today that after doing Superman, Christoper Reeve was type-cast and had a hard time getting new roles. He even thought about suicide at one point.

That's exactly what the original TV Superman, George Reeves, did and for the same reason. Even the names were similar.

It's Wisconsin for god's sake, not a real state.

Why are you all surprised? The head of the Dept. of Natural Resources wants to use plastic so he doesn't get "egg on his face!"

Of course, you could argue that it was a catch-22, stuck between the literal and the conceptual egging.

I think it would be fun to see how large an environmental impact the eggs would make on the concerned citizens, you know, if you hard boil them and let professional pitchers throw them.

In the name of science.

"The original egg fight among sailors was apparently a spur-of-the-moment release of tension."

Well, what do you expect pent up seamen to do?

When Life throws eggs at you. Take some of that cheese off your heads and make some fekin Omlettes. My granny from Wisconsin always used to say.

Mmmmmmmm... Wisconsin Head Cheese Omelettes!

Arrrrrgleglelgle

Yes, Cristobol. In the name of science, of course.

Hey! Super cop.. super ranger... We just shit in the bay. OooooooooooH.
