So I watched some of that horrible summer show, "I Survived a Japanese Game Show." Ok. It's entertaining as hell. But here's the question, who the hell signs a contract to be a on a show where they have no clue that they will be whisked halfway across the world? I mean, how dumb - people will do anything to be on tv. I'm glad the contestants are adapting more since they started off looking like horrible Americans. But you know the Japanese, they crayzay too. They come up with some crazy useless junk. For instance I saw these Japanese egg molds and jumped for joy at the pure cute/uselessness of them.

It just so happened that O.G. just bought me this ridiculous stupid egg cooker that is, of course, shaped like an egg. What. Suddenly she thinks she's Mork from Ork. The thing doesn't work for sh*t. Next time I will just boil them the old fashioned way. In any case, I boiled some eggs, and while they were still warm, pressed them into the molds and stuck them in the fridge. The kids were all excited to see the eggs shaped into a car and a fishy.

The Kid munched his up but the Baby, as usual, was put off by the fact that - 'Wait a minute, THIS AIN'T A CAR...IT'S AN EGG!" Cue hysteria. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

I'm with the Baby on this one. That egg thing is WEIRD.

I'm all for useless as long as it means cute. Eggs shaped like anything=awesome. I like poached eggs, though, so that wouldn't work out too well.

The guys use the egg cooker on the truck. They can't exactly boil water while driving.

I read that that show wasn't "real." (Like most reality tv, I suppose!) It did look entertaining, but I haven't seen it.

Eggs shaped like anything=the most disgusting thing EVER!!! Unless it's a Cadbury Creme Egg, of course.
