I Want It! Condor Egg Omelette

Bill: At this rate you’ll be broke in a month.  The only thing left to do is…open a Clown College and train some regional Krustys.
Krusty: You mean like that bozo, Bonko the Clown?
Bill: Exactly.
Krusty: Forget it.  I’ll just cut back on the condor egg omelettes. Mmm, a couple of those would be tasty right now.
Bill: I’ll found the college tomorrow.

Sometimes there are food and drink products that exist in The Simpsons universe that I simply cannot buy or reproduce. Thus, I present to you: I Want It! An Eats Like A Duck feature where I yearn to breathe free…I mean yearn for products that don’t or can’t currently exist.

Here are the approximate sizes of a chicken egg vs. a condor egg (according to Wikipedia):

Extra-Large Chicken Egg: 2.25 ounces or 63.8 grams

Condor Egg: 10 ounces or 280 grams

Having a three egg omelet made from extra-large chicken eggs would be approximately 6.75 ounces or 191.4 grams. Meanwhile, a single egg from a condor is roughly the equivalent of 4.5 extra-large chicken eggs, that’s a lot of egg – and Krusty says he wants a couple of omelettes made from them!

I doubt that Krusty enjoys eating condor egg omelettes because he get more eggy bang for his buck though. He likely enjoys this dish because the condor is endangered – making the eggs especially rare. The more a dish is out of touch from the common person, the more someone like Krusty appreciates it…which is why I also want to eat it, take that commoners!

  1. Maybe you could substitute an ordinary vulture egg?

    Most condor eggs you pick up from the supermarket are just a bunch of duck eggs taped together anyway.

    The egg you could seriously substitute size-wise is a goose egg. That’s about 3.5 chicken eggs.
