The Cook, the Egg, the server and breakfast. Emeril, eat your heart out. This enterprising chef/computer geek has managed to fry an egg using only the heat sink on his server, some tinfoil and a collection of copper 1p and 2p coins. Sure the egg took 11 minutes too cook, but it did taste "loverly!" Photo's galore!

And one apostrophe from that "photo's" while you're at it. Sorry about the pedantry. And the pederasty. Though I'm guilty of only one.

Anywho, that was pretty cool, except for the part about "putting on the brown sauce." Understand it's not like I'm asking, "what is that brown sauce?" It really doesn't matter. I just didn't like that he put "brown sauce" on his sandwich.

Bloody interesting what people do when they are bored. I love it!

From i_cola's link to the HP Sauce site:

Did You Know?

The Campbell Soup Company uses more than 44 billion stars each year in its canned Chicken & Stars Soup. In three years, Campbell's produces more tiny pasta stars than there are in the Milky Way.


If you get really bored, you can count the stars in your soup while you wait for your egg to fry.

the ingredients for the brown sauce look a bit like A! sauce.

Also from the HP Sauce site:

Joke.. New product idea for the Millennium:Y2KY Jelly
"For when you want to put four digits where only two could go previously."

That's really quite disturbing to see in the sidebar of a site about food.
