The Big Egg

A Hen laid a giant egg with something pretty strange inside.

Enjoy!

“The big egg has another egg in it!”

That surprised reaction by a man when he cracked open an oversized egg from one of his hens has garnered plenty of skepticism. Whether the video is real or fake is uncertain, but the possibility of it happening is definitely plausible.

While extremely rare, a hen can lay an egg within an egg: It is caused by a counter-peristalsis contraction. This happens when an egg is forming in the hen’s oviduct and another oocyte is released too soon, causing a contraction that pushes the first egg back up.

Typically, a hen releases an oocyte (the egg cell that becomes the yolk) from her left ovary every 16 to 26 hours, according to Backyard Poultry Magazine. The oocyte then travels through the oviduct, where layers of membranes and albumen are added along the way.

However, if a second oocyte is released too early, the first oocyte (now in the hen’s uterus) gets sucked back inside by a contraction induced by the second egg. The counter-peristalsis contraction pushes it backwards to where it gets embedded inside egg number two.

God's CoffeeA group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain-looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said:

“If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us.”

God brews the coffee, not the cups… Enjoy your coffee!

“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.”

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Bigfoot Bundt Cake

Enjoy!

Big news! Bigfoot has been found…inside a bundt cake! Jenn Fujikawa over at Nerdist used a Bigfoot cookie cutter to make him appear inside this tasty treat.

Sasquatch. Yeti. Bigfoot. He goes by so many names, yet he’s still an enigma. He could be behind that tree in the woods, or perhaps in the icy mountain of a theme park ride, but most likely you’ll find him… in a bundt cake.

Bigfoot Bundt Cake
(serves 10)

Ingredients:
– pre-made chocolate cake
– 3 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
– 2 cups sugar
– 3 eggs
– 1 cup buttermilk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla

Cut out pieces of the chocolate cake using the Bigfoot cookie cutter. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar, then add the eggs one at a time until combined.

Alternate the flour mixture with the buttermilk and vanilla just until combined.

Generously grease a bundt pan. Pour a layer of batter along the bottom of the pan, then place the Bigfoot cake pieces upside down, randomly around the cake pan. Carefully pour in the rest of the batter over and around the cake pieces until they are just covered.

Place the filled bundt pan on a baking sheet (in case of spillage) and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer test comes out clean.

Let the cake cool in the pan until the pan is cool to the touch, then turn the cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Slice the cooled cake to reveal the hidden Bigfoots.

Rubber Chicken Twelve priests were about to be ordained. The final test was for them to line up in a straight row, totally nude, in a garden while a sexy and beautiful, big breasted, nude model danced before them.

Each priest had a small bell attached to his penis and they were told that anyone whose bell rang when she danced in front of them would not be ordained because he had not reached a state of spiritual purity.

The beautiful model danced before the first candidate, with no reaction. She proceeded down the line with the same response from all the priests until she got to the final priest.

As she danced, his bell began to ring so loudly that it flew off and fell clattering to the ground. Embarrassed, the priest took a few steps forward, bent over to pick it up… And suddenly all the other bells rang out loudly!!!

Homemade Weed Killer:

1 gallon vinegar
1/2 cup salt
A dash of dish washing detergent (makes it stick to the weeds).
Empty spray bottle

Put salt in the empty spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way up with white vinegar. Add a squirt of liquid dish soap. Mix well, spray on weeds in the morning, rejoice in their death that evening. This works best on a hot sunny day.
