Thank god. For a second I assumed someone saw an egg and literally thought "that oblong white thing.. idk? Could be a bomb!?"

At first I read this as "wrapped in a banana" and was really struggling to understand why someone would wrap anything in a banana, but especially an egg or bomb.

It is known colloquially as the 'wham-bam'.

This gave me a terrible idea!

Peel banana but leave like 2" of the peel intact.

Jam egg into little 2" pocket.


I'm imagining the peeled pieces acting as stabilizers for the egg bomb!

Yeah the potassium of the banana reacts with the eggs calcium. Basically thermite.


Wand_Cloak_Stone t1_j5mh0tr wrote

I did too but for some reason my tired brain thought it made complete sense and I moved on. I didn’t realize it didn’t say banana until I read your comment.

Probably someone on drugs or having a mental health episode.

Wow . First Egg smuggling and now this. The egg wars are coming to a boil.

I wish the investigators luck poaching the culprit. If you want to crack a case like this, the deviled is in the details.

Glad nobody was hurt, otherwise we wouldn't be able to yolk around like this.

Local detectives are working hard to crack the case now.

I mean if it was a rotten one then that description isn't too far off.

In middle school some kids thought it'd be hilarious to throw a dozen rotten eggs into the air return of the school. Clear the fucking building OUT in under 10 minutes. Also got the bomb squad and several other authorities involved due to them thinking it was a chemical attack.


techleopard t1_j5l456q wrote

The smell is... Well, once you smell it, you KNOW that smell. It's engrained into the surface of your brain forever, like skunk musk or a dog with parvovirus.

It's a bit funny that none of the adults in school didn't immediately know what that smell was.


SheriffComey t1_j5l7z54 wrote

Most of the students and some teachers said exactly what it was. I mean like you said you just know.

Where administrators were coming from was in the off chance someone used the eggs to hide the smell of something else. Basically an abundance of caution. We used to do that in the early 90s


GrannysPartyMerkin t1_j5m63gy wrote

Wait, you can smell Parvo?


techleopard t1_j5mm18z wrote

When the dogs start to have diarrhea, it has a very distinct smell. It is not just a "sick poop" smell, nor is it just a blood smell. It's almost...chemical.

I remember as a kid trying to make rotten eggs to use for mischief, and we just couldn't get them to rot, even waiting for weeks with them. So frustrating, ha.

Eggs are so expensive now that we've resorted to hiding them! Where is Frank with his egg during these trying times.

Who the hell is wealthy enough to waste an egg on a hoax? Those things are hella expensive!

Obviously some concerned neighbor knew the homeowner was going through some trying times

If there really were threats made against her, an egg wrapped in a bandana placed under the house makes me think someone is trying perform some sort of ritual to curse her.

One can only hope that the homeowner has the phone # of the caller and the police do follow-up and arrest the threatener.
