Egging made easy

A costume devoted to egging

I know egging can be considered mean, and messy, but I could not resist. I suggest that someone, for a halloween costume, duct tapes eggs over their entire body. This egg covered person would trick or treat as normal, until they came to a house they felt like egging. When the owner of the house opens the door, the egger gives a bloodcurdling warcry, and runs straight into the side of the house. This would smash most of the eggs on the costume, leaving a huge smear on the house. Also, if desired, the egger could have a friend photograph the onlookers faces.

       Bun, for the bizarre image. Icing for the warcry.

       Bone, for the appalling cleanup of the costumed one.

       Bone, for the waste of good food. Didn't your mother tell you there were starving children in Europe (or Asia, or Bangladesh, or Ethiopia, or Nicaragua, or whatever corner of the Earth tore hardest at her heart that month)?

       There's a bun unaccounted for then.
migennes, Feb 05 2006
  

       Bun, unaccounted for. (you meant).

       fantastic.
Truely Fantastic.

       fish, because this sort of thing should never be encouraged.

       croissant, because this is the HB after all.

       Bun. The people who boned this must have had a depressing childhood. I think if a young blood went through that trouble, he deserves his rewards.

       egging boring?

       The problem with this idea is that it works only once.

       The technical issue here is whether chicken eggs will stick to duck tape.
ConsulFlaminicus, Feb 05 2006
  

       The eggnical tissue is where eggs will stick.
zeno, Feb 05 2006
  

       Neutral, until you have read [AffroAssault]'s egging story.

"Quuaaackk?!"

       Bun for the justice inherent in this noble idea. The egger punishes his victim and in the act punishes himself even more. First, there is the work and expense involved in taping on all those eggs. Then, we have the pain from the house collision followed by the pain when the owner of the house kicks his butt. Lastly there is the pain involved in removing all of that duct tape from his bruised body. Compared with the usual practice of simply throwing eggs when no one is looking this is a laudable idea.

       //The problem with this idea is that it works only once// Actually, since there are eggs //over their entire body//, the egger should be able to make a second pass in reverse. And still have a few laterally-mounted to use for hand-filling any inconsistencies in the splat pattern.
lurch, Feb 06 2006
  

       Bun on the basis of [hangingchad]'s wisdom

       "What the fuck have you come as?"
"WOOOOAARRRRAAARRRARAA!!"
*thud*
  

       Croissant.
calum, Feb 06 2006
  

       I imagine the warcry to be Zoidberg-esque +
spiritualized, Feb 06 2006
  

       I think you could probably do four or five splats.   

       Front, back, left side, right side, top of the head (for your grand finale).
shapu, Feb 06 2006
  

       I agree, Hangingchad put it best. Bun.
Pac-man, Feb 06 2006
  

       You could also rip a few eggs off if you want to egg houses old-school style.
notmarkflynn, Feb 06 2006
  

       I like it.   

       [sab8823] diverts the attention of the homeowner with his full-frontal assault while I cunningly sneak around the back and lob a jar of pickled eggs through the conservatory window.

       this would solve a problem i had once--every1 had gotten 2gether 1 nite 2 egg houses--n some1 had "accidently"(it really was an accident-they had grabbed the wrong carton from their fridge) brought hardboiled eggs-which we realized after breaking several windows:(

       I laughed my ass off at that. [+] for originality.
