Egg. This is the theme chosen for this week's Theme Thursday.
I have to admit, this is one theme that has had me stumped. I didn't know where to go with this.
So, I am just going to run down a quick list of some eggs that have been of interest to me.
First up is one from my childhood. I give you the one and only Mork from Ork, with his eggship:
I used to love "Mork & Mindy" when I was a kid, watched it every week. Robin Williams was hilarious, making Mork a truly memorable, one-of-a-kind character. I also had quite a crush on the lovely Pam Dawber, who played Mindy.
Speaking of Mork, this was one of my favorite toys as a kid:
Played with this all the time, until it was either broken or lost. Ah well. Good memories, however.
Next is this absolutely amazing creation:
The Cadbury Creme Egg consists of a chocolate egg shell filled with a white and yellow creme filling. It is delicious, and not too big to seem like a horrible snack choice. And no, I don't want to know the "Nutrition Facts", thank you very much.
By the way, does anyone else think these things have gotten a lot smaller over the years?
Here is a cousin to the creme egg:
The Cadbury Mini Eggs are a smaller candy, made of a hard sugar shell with a chocolate filling. And they are very tasty. Could eat these little bastards by the bowl full.
Again, keep the nutrition facts to yourself.
Finally, I couldn't end this blog without something horror-related, so I give you this:
This is an alien egg collectible from "Aliens", the 1986 sequel to the hit "Alien". The alien queen has an egg chamber in the movie, and Sigourney Weaver's Ripley manages to destroy most of them.
Nasty little buggers, ain't they?
Hope you enjoyed this rather bizarre post.
Now I gotta find me some Cadbury eggs!
