After doing a recent post on poached eggs, I got to thinking about the many different styles of fixing eggs and the people that like to eat them a certain way.
In my personal world view, there are exactly four different crowds who like their eggs a certain way. Not surprisingly, they also tend to fall into certain political buckets. A place from which they never seem able to climb out of….
The hard boiled crowd!
Icon: Billy Joel Theme song: A Matter of Trust!
This beer drinking, hard working bunch of guys and gals can be found in any city where things are happening. Why? Cause these are the folks that make things happen; be it construction, power generation, mechanics or whatever! They tend to be Independents politically and they take life like they take their eggs hard boiled and tough!
The sunny side crowd!
Icon: Ray Stevens Theme song: Everything is beautiful!
Here we find all the ‘artsie fartsies’! They are talented, gifted and want everyone to know it! Money is never a problem for them and life is so beautiful they almost can’t stand it. Politically they comprise the part of the Democratic Party that is so far to the right that they almost aren’t in the left!
We’re all scrambled and loving it crowd!
Icon: The Beatles Theme song: Helter Skelter
This is most certainly the largest crowd out there. It’s comprised mostly of the middle class who all are struggling to make ends meet and who will listen to anyone who shouts loud enough to be heard. You’ll find a confusing…well scrambled mix of just about every party here, all moving this way and that without rhyme or reason.
Those egg sucking aristocrats!
Icon: President Barack Obama : The Barack Obama Song
My personal favorite crowd. You’ll find them are most any Democratic rally. These folks have a singular and awesome talent to share with the rest of us boobs. They can adroitly talk out of both sides of their mouths, while sucking a coddled egg down, all at the same time! President Obama is their charismatic leader for life. A man who can talk for hours, saying nothing, but lifting your wallet all the same. Ya just gotta love someone with talent like that!
