Too stupid to boil an egg?

Ah but what colour does it turn if it's gone off?
In Soviet Russia...
In Soviet Russia, the egg too stupid to boil YOU.
The bacon is done when the fire alarm goes off.
Well, I am pretty stupid.
Yes, but how do they convince the chickens to swallow the tiny printers?
mkay, as a divorced 30-something living in a trailer (albeit a funky vintage spaceship looking thing), I feel somehow qualified to present to you my egg-boiling technique:
put egg in a small pot.
cover it with
bring it to a boil.
turn it off.
wait: 5-7 min for soft-boiled, 10 for hard boiled.
Hope that helps.
Just don't ask me to format your html.
Out of curiousity, is the trailer parked down by the river?
Hey, that's Julia Child's recipe! Theif! Stop theif!!

I really, really wish you'd get that Chevy on blocks and the pile of Old Milwaukee Light cans out of your yard. And chain that Rottweiler up!
I was going to fry up an egg for breakfast today and actually cracked one open that was rotten. Brown and smelly! Completely put me off of my eggy-weggs.
stomper that takes waaaay too long. Get egg. Get a needle or a pin. Jab (gently) a tiny hole in rounded bottom of egg (ie not the pointier top). Put egg in boiling water. Watch bubbles ecsape from the little hole-- they are leaving that little air sac inside the shell. (By piercing this you make sure the egg doesn't explode in the boiling water.) Leave for 4 mins for a well cooked egg with a runny yolk.
I'm gonna horizontally scroll your underpants because of that...
Egg covered in cold water, bring to boil, boil for 3 mins. Toasty soldiers. Yum.

Y'know how long it took the chicken to make that egg? 6 more minutes ain't gonna kill ya. But seriously... the idea is that eggs like to be cooked slow, or they get tough. Yah, and the trailer isn't down by the river, yet. But if the wind picks up a little more...
on the stupid front.
on the Ceeb the other night. Highly recommended if you get the chance.
I have this great recipe for ice cubes. Send me five dollars and a SASE, and it can be yours. Recipe guaranteed to work if you follow directions!
But will it get the chicks? In truckloads?
