Go To Work On An Egg… AND DIE

"Felix Salmonella" would be a good -- if extremely obscure -- name for a bandI made bucatini carbonara last night-someday I'll share the recipe!-so I was a little freaked out this morning to hear about the absolutely massive recall of salmonella-tainted eggs. Then I remembered I'm bulletproof, and the gypsy woman told me the only way I would ever die was being run down by a bike delivery guy. The rest of you might want to watch out, though.

What's your homemade mayonnaise recipe? I like to live dangerously.

The bulletproof part will only help if someone is firing eggs at you from an egg cannon.

The lack of egg puns here is egg-cruciating.

I'm so ova puns.

I'll take a crack at it. I will not lay down in the face of this eggnominious accusation that we are all too chicken to make egg puns. The yolk's on you, friend.

It may not be salmonella, but I think I just made myself sick.

ROMA! Please avoid using "gypsy" as it is on a par with "mulatto" in the pantheon of anachronistic, somewhat racially insensitive terms.

This is why I have no qualms eating raw cookie dough. I mean, how often do we have one of these scares? Once every 5-7 years? I am not going to live my life in fear.

There's a recipe for cookies right here on this'n site that does not include eggs – perfect for raw dough eating!

This is going to be one of those Appointment in Samarra situations where you try to cheat death by moving somewhere with no bike delivery guys and then get run down by a bike deliver guy on vacation.

God, that would be a HORRIBLE name for a band.

jolie (#16)

Don't you mean that would be a HORRIBLE name for a bad?

I didn't think Balk was old enough to remember the Go To Work On An Egg campaign. I mean, it's almost as old as Drinka Pinta Milka Day.

Salmon taint is NOT an appropriate subject for this blog…If there aren't pictures.

Switch to pasta alla gricia for the time being.
