Egging them on: or, The yolk’s on us

Egging them on: or, The yolk’s on us

File under cracked up: nzherald reports Christian students at Auckland University are lining up to become targets:

It is an unorthodox Easter celebration but the chance to “egg a Christian” has created a stir at Auckland University – with a large crowd expected to take up the offer today.

Anybody who wants to can head to the University quad today and biff an egg at a member of the campus Christian group Student Life Auckland – but there is a catch.

“The meaning of the Easter story and Christ’s resurrection will be explained to those wanting to throw eggs,” explains a flyer.

“Egging will continue for as long as eggs last. One egg per person.”

“Biff” an egg? Dunno. Sounds a little bit like a way to fashion oneself into a martyr.

Your take?

Below, eggs you wouldn’t want to throw – one from Texas circa Christmas 2009, others from Russia with love.
