Thailand runs short of eggs

Recommended Posts

Some Thai quack apparently was on Facebook claiming egg protein was a corona virus prophylactic. So everyone rushes out to buy them.

I saw a couple in Chiang Rai who loaded up with two full shopping trolleys, hope they go rotten on them.

Once again village life scores a hit. Madam Moon's sister-in-law has a very productive brood of hens and we get first pick before the eggs leave for market.

 

We're very unlikely to go short. Which is just as well 'cos I luv 'em.

Hmmmm. It just occurred  to me that the  neighbors  chickens have not been roaming about as  usual.

Quarantined  or chicknapped?

Yeah, read somewhere a couple days ago that some (Thai) doctor type had gone on about how the coronavirus couldn't penetrate an egg shell so people suddenly started buying up eggs, for much the same reason they were buying up toilet paper ('cause they're ID-10-Ts).

Whenever there is a topic about eggs, everybody uses the tried and tested puns.

Doesn't happen for anything else, strange really

That's Thaivisa all ova. Scrambling to get the best yolks in first.

The village momma poppa shops have plenty of eggs but the supermarkets do seem to be stripped of them. I want to know who the evil people are who are hoarding fish fingers, went to Makro yesterday and there were none left.

Not too worried, I eat duck eggs, and the ducks are kept in eggsemplary isolation.
