    I love the annual 'chuck your egg down the hill and see whose goes furthest' competition. This is why I, with the help of my good friend Mr Egg, embarked on a Secret Mission.

    To victory!

    I had what I thought was a great idea. I would coat Mr Egg in glue! This would either give him a hard shell which would allow him to roll for days unhindered, or make him stick to the grass.

    Lookin' good, Mr Egg!

    Unfortunately, at this point Mr Egg cracked. I think it's because I was blasting him with a hair drier in order to get the glue dry in time for the big competition. After a moment's panic, I sprung into action. We had to carry on! It was for honour!

    Luckily, there was some insulating tape nearby...

    Ninja styleé

    Holy hot damn. Surely nothing can beat us now, Mr Egg!

    The competition

    Well... actually, they could. I lost. Bugger.

    How do you dye the eggs, FunkSlap? They look really good, especially compared to our relatively primitive felt pen doodlings :D

    We use the tablets that you put in the vinegar and they fizz. Then you dilute it with cold water. We also used regular food coloring for added effect!

    Oh yeah, we also use wax candles to draw on the eggs. (the dye doesn't stick to the places colored with wax)

    Cool eggs. I usually just scramble them and throw the shell.
