Cream Egg Challenge

Have you had a creme egg yet this year? I doubt you have. This is why I propose you go out and buy one and spread the wealth a little.

Buy a creme egg, ask the next person in the street you see if they have had a creme egg this calendar year (- why is it spelt creme and not cream) – if they reply in the negative, lob the wrapped egg at them and continue walking. This way everyone will eat an egg very soon.

This is exactly what I did to two unsuspecting passers by on Friday night having purchased said egg from a 24 hour garage. Obviously I missed out on consuming it myself but I made somebody’s night (well maybe not…)

Oh yeah, I reckon i’ve had 10 so far this year. You only need to be generous once!

PS It’s not really a challenge…
