Medieval Egg House

Rarely written about, these egg houses, built using eggs from the giant Gon-Gon-awey bird of the Blackforest, were a cheap and practical way of getting a roof over your head without having to shell out a large amount of money, in fact..they were very cheep.  Apparently the fashion went as they weren´t all they were cracked up to be.
Here, a lokal Yolkel can be seen re-positioning his Egg house after moving a heavy cupboard away from the center of gravity. 


After seeing Dalauppror´s Paint your egg challenge..I just had to have a go. Still one day to go Y(F)olks and if you miss the deadline, there´s always next year :-D
HAPPY EASTER !! :-D

  6. Sorry, but your punnery cannot go unpunished. *Distributes the rotten tomatoes and cabbage* Remember to aim for the face, and below the belt is totally legal.

    :P

  16. Cracking good idea! - Your story reminds me of a childhood rhyme:

    Birdie flying on wing so high-
    drops a present from the sky-
    Farmer stands there, wiping his eye-
    thanking God that cows can't fly!
