Blowing Hard Eggs And Other Sexy Cooking Tips

1. Poke a small hole at the fat end of the egg (where the air pocket is). This allows the egg to release pressure thereby preventing its shell from cracking during the boiling process. It also has the added benefit of reducing the buoyancy of the egg.

2. After boiling the egg for 8 minutes, cool the egg in ice water and pinch off a bit of the shell at each end of the egg.

3. Firmly palm the egg and blow into one end of the shell. The egg will slip out the other end without any need to peel it.

About Me, Not You

I was christened Wannahockaloogy by our tribal leader. He was a bitter old man with throat cancer who believed that, to truly hock a loogie, one must not retrieve the phlegm from the throat, but from the soul. His weakened, delirious state made it easy for me to overthrow him and seize control. Now, I am the chief and I have internet access. Beware, delirious smoking populace. Beware.
