Quiz About Eggs

Updated on October 3, 2017
Gloriousconfusion profile image

I love a good quiz - but of course it has to be about things I know, so no good if it's sport or celebs. I still do pub quizzes with friends

On this web page you will be able to enjoy a quiz about eggs, maybe learn a new fact or two

When you read my poem about making soldiers out of strips of bread, and dunking them in runny boiled egg, it might remind you of your childhood..

And then, finally, you can join in the quiz and poll.

Do you like boiled eggs? I do, I love them!

But I remember that when I was young, every now and then we would find a bad egg.

I was taught that you should break eggs into a cup separately when cooking, to avoid the nasty situation of having the good eggs tainted by the final bad egg.

Being by temperament a bit of a risk taker, I discovered by experience that this was wise advice.

Here's an Eggy Poem I Wrote Myself - It's a children's poem really


Eggs and Soldiers

Eggs and Soldiers

Munchy-munch they go


And crack-crack-crack

To open eggy neatly.

Spread your bread

And sprinkle salt

Then eat your food politely;

Little fellow

Dipped in yellow

Dunky-dunk I go.

Now his head is bitten off

His jacket coated gold

And crystal white his salty legs -

Don't let your egg get cold!

Bad Eggs

Returning to bad eggs: - The point I want to make is that I haven't seen a bad egg for years, until after I had started writing this webpage, that is

What reminded me about bad eggs was another piece of advice that, if an egg floats when you boil it, this could mean it's bad.

I had a floating egg recently and quarantined it - I still opened it, but kept it away from the toast, sniffing and inspecting it carefully with each tap, then tasting it suspiciously ..........Perfect!

But a few days ago, lo and behold, I cracked my boiled breakfast egg, and took a mouthful without looking. It tasted disgusting but I had swallowed it before realization dawned on me that it must be bad. I inspected it, and sure enough, on the cracked-open "lid" of the egg, there was a greeny blotchy area. I rushed for my camera and in the shot above, you can clearly see it at the bottom of the lid. Knowing that elderly people can get seriously ill, or even die from salmonella in eggs, I was freaking out, and couldn't decide whether to make myself sick. I have a pretty strong constitution, from years of eating slightly out of date food, so I decided against that, but quickly swallowed two little bio drinks, so that at least I would have some good bacteria inside me to fight the baddies. I lived to tell the tale, and didn't have even the slightest illness.

Here's a Brave Little Soldier Egg Cup - Great for Your Easter Eggs or Eggs for Breakfast - Children would love this little soldier egg cup - I love it too - how

This is such a novelty - any children who are reluctant to eat eggs will be clamouring for a boiled egg when they see it served up in this egg cup, with shaped soldiers to dunk. This includes quite a few grown-up children!


So what makes good eggs float?

By now you must be thinking "what a nerd"

      I once met a very old man from Minot, ND. He told me eggs and occasionally chicken is what he grew up on. Claimed he even ate the feathers. Said he quit eating eggs after he got drafted for WW2. So I believe that, next to milk, eggs are nature's most perfect food. I am somewhat Irish and eat potatoes almost everyday and I especially like Eggs O'Brien w/cheese.

      PS-I only got 60% which is terrible for a know-it-all like me.

      I love eggs cooked in many different ways. I have to admit I flunked your quiz - how embarrassing! Loved the little eggy video. I'm sure it will replay over and over in my mind every time I crack an egg! :-)

      They'd be singing "Hot-hot-hot"

      After being in the fridge? They'd probably shout "I'm boiling hot!"

      Luckily on the quizzes I had a friend that raises chickens and I actually remembered most of it. Also the video that you found brought a smile. Just wondering what they would have done if they were about to be boiled instead.

      @Ahdilarum: It's just a quiz, not an academic treatise, and, I might add, I did do some research. However, I an neither an eggologist or an egghead, though I might have been a tad egotistical in thinking I knew the answer!

      Cute lens! Faberge eggs and quizzes :->

      Worst smell? I guess rotting meat is accurate - it was in a hospital in which I was working after a body had been found on base.
