Works very much in the same principle as my pudding bomb.
A bomb containing low grade eplosives and powdered egg yolk is airlifted into a large cloudbank and detonated. The heat from the explosion will warm and mix the powder with the surrounding moisture. Subsequently, a secondary series of bombs
or missiles is fired into the egg cloud upon its formation at strategic points, evenly omelettizing the entire egg cloud.
The tera-omelette (an omelette by 10 to the 12th power, far superior to the mega-omelette of 1947, and even the modern day giga-omelettes)lands, cooled by its descent into a famine area.
The one side effect is that I have destroyed a rain cloud they may need for crops, so we'll have to be careful when we decide to egg bomb poor nations.
Alternately, this could be used to enter the record books for the worlds biggest omelette.
(?) The problem of egg yolks.

Where the supply comes from.
Why, Russia, of course! [notmarkflynn, May 23 2006]
||I like the omelette bomb - but would
prefer if it didn't destroy the third world -
I'd settle for Texas as a more suitable
target. Combined with one of the global
warming induced monster hurricanes
that's already on its way, it should do the
trick nicely. The survivors can fry up the
egg coated debris as they sit in the trees
watching the world go by piece by piece in
the flood waters. Have the biggest bun of
the day +

||All over your face [nmf]. Egg. All over your face.

||Are you trying to bomb me?
||//Egg. All over your face.//
And all over everything else, it would seem.
You could send in the Custardships for airborne dessert.
