There is a billboard by my house that shows a picture of an egg. There is a cartoon "thought balloon" above the egg that shows a hot and fresh Ham, Egg, & Cheese McMuffin. The caption reads, "Every Egg's Dream."
Call me nit picky. Call me crazy. Hell, call me a drunken nutcase with too much time on his hands, but this just bothers me to no end. It is not every egg's dream to be a fast-food breakfast sandwich. It is every egg's dream to be a chicken, preferably a chicken that is well fed and lives to a ripe old age and dies in his/her sleep.
I simply cannot accept that any egg dreams of being cooked and served with greasy hash browns in some "top o' the morning" value meal. It would have had to enter this world with some pretty low self esteem issues to desire this. Not to mention that it would have to be filled with such self-loathing that it was looking for someone to blame, to the point that it became anti-Semitic. After all, it is looking forward to meeting it's demise only to be joined with ham and cheese on a limp English muffin. It is as if the McDonald's Corporation expects us to believe that they have been interviewing chickens and their findings have lent conclusive proof that chickens are doubly damned, being both flightless and tasty, and they have given up all hope.
Am I out of my flipping mind here?
