Six eggs – twelve yolks

with one comment

Four eggs - eight yolks

The Telegraph this morning told the story of a Cumbrian woman who discovered that all six eggs in a box had double yolks: six eggs – twelve yolks. They put the odds of this happening at over one in a trillion.

Does that mean more than a trillion boxes of eggs have been consumed since 16May03 when the photograph shown here was taken? We had a box of six double-yolkers, though only four were used for the meal we were preparing.

  1. Why didn’t it occur to us to ring the national newspapers when we had these double-yolkers? xx
