Signs that Halloween is tomorrow

eggs at the checkout

Sign reads, “Eggs are at the checkout”. I remember seeing similar signs in other shops in previous years. My car was egged twice on successive years after working late. “Those damn kids!”

  1. Ha that’s brilliant.

    A few years back some scumbags ran out of eggs and started throwing rocks at cars instead. Mine got hit on the roof. I was bloody lucky they didn’t hit my windscreen and they were even luckier that I couldn’t catch them in time.

  2. Eggs do damage cars when thrown, my car at the time was ‘egged’ about 7 or 8 years ago and the shells actually scratched straight through the paint and caused these wonderful fractured circular rust patches to appear, I wish I’d taken photo’s of it now to show you what I mean.

    It didn’t really bother me at the time as that car was a bit of a banger but if it happened to my current car I’d be heart broken, That’s the downside to finally getting my grubby mits on a car I really wanted as opposed to something that gets me from A to B.

  3. I know exactly what George means, its like a tiny shark tried to take a bite out of your car. My old car got egged once, I only realised I was hit the next day when I saw dried goo and egg shell stuck to the back of it.

    Eggs can be lethal, manys a person at a bus stop has had to be taken to hospital with fractures due to eggs being launched from passenger windows of cars.

  4. Tell me about it. I got egged in Cork on Sunday night, while about to go in to a jazz gig. I must be a softie, because the egg bounced off my back without breaking. Either that, or the ghost of Dizzy Gillespie was looking out for me: his daughter was singing, and it was excellent. 8)

  5. ive always loved throwing eggs at those snotty trick or treaters. Well im a tricker not a treater and they get blasted with eggs!
