Today's award goes to the chef of the Norwegian Winter Olympics team.
Egg sandwiches. Bacon and eggs. Egg salad. Eggs on toast. Scrambled eggs, or fried. After taking receipt of 15,000 eggs instead of the 1,500 they wanted, Norway’s team at this month’s Pyeongchang Winter Olympics may have a pretty limited menu.
Norwegian chef de mission Tore Ovrebo struggled to suggest what they will do with the delivery but did not rule out consuming them. Their registered 121-strong delegation of athletes and officials would get plenty of protein, eating 124 eggs each.
“The eggs was more like a misunderstanding than something that we needed, so it was an extra zero on the order, so 1,500 to 15,000,” he said with a rueful laugh.

Hmmm . . . what can one do with about 14,500 surplus eggs, in sub-zero temperatures? Egg gelato on the half shell, perhaps? Please send your suggestions direct to the Norwegian Winter Olympics team in Pyeongchang. They need your help!
