Price doesn't matter
when the product is so gross
and I want to hurl.

I've never seen an emu egg. They're gorgeous! I'd buy one just to have it to look at.

Yowza ... now that's a big egg! Looks like it could serve 10!

Nurse Nancy said...

Cool color to the egg but no interest in eating one.

Daryl said...

Umm .. scrambled or fried ...

Trisha said...

Wow! Those are some pricy eggs! In addition I was thinking that some poor worker had to put a price tag on each of those eggs. What a job!

Magpie said...

Sally said...

Not me sister, no no no.

TSannie said...

Grandmother said...

They are pretty, but even if they serve 10, that's a lot of money!

30 bucks?? I'd rather buy a cap with that money.:D

I think the shells are collectors pieces, highly sought after. Or so I've heard.

Oh good heavens. Not around these parts they don't. However, we do ship the common creek eel off to other countries who consider it a delicacy, so go figure.

:O Yowza!

Eat? No way. I'd use them for decorating. I wonder how long an emu egg can sit on a shelf before it starts smelling bad.

Like Ellen...I love the color, but...ummmmm, yuck?

Ewww... Empty, they'd be beautiful on display.
