Does anyone remember that marvelous movie of the sixties (I think) called 'The Mouse That Roared'?
Adolf starred in the recently made sequel.
It all began with a flight from Auckland to Perth, via Sydney. The airline will remain nameless but it was one of those where you buy a beer and a snack on board. (Say no more.)
Adolf perused the extensive menu - hot breakfast of eggs, sausage and hash brown or cold wrap. Being a person aware of matters dietary and cholesterol familial, Adolf chose hot breakfast.
There they were - two little malevolent yellow bleary eyes, staring up from a soggy chunk of once was hash and never was brown. Facing starvation Adolf closed his eyes and imagined it was all cordon bleu. It worked until he got to the egg, for when it hit the molars, I kid you not.
The bloody egg squeaked.
