Today, Americans celebrate Veterans’ Day, to commemorate their fallen warriors. We Eggs do that, too:
1. Second Punic War: Hannibal cobbled together many allies to fight the Romans, including the powerful Eggish tribes that lived in modern-day Switzerland. He used the Eggs while they were useful, but clearly Hannibal feared the might of the Eggish warrior. He had all his human allies attack us in the back, including trampling us with elephants. Cowards.
2. Battle of Kyoto, 1931: Okonomiyaki is a foul Japanese dish in which many eggs are killed to make a sort of “pancake” or “pizza”. In a bold strike against this atrocity, the famous rebel Tamago Katayude (卵 固ゆで) launched a coordinated attack against okonomiyaki restaurants in Kyoto. Eggs would launch themselves into the chefs’ faces, preventing them from being able to cook any okonomiyaki at all. It took two weeks for the “professional” Japanese army to put down the unequipped, amateur Eggish freedom fighters.
It’s obvious that one of the okonomiyaki chefs later must have become a high ranking Japanese commander in World War II and stole the suicide attack idea from Katayude.
3. The Denny’s Rebellion, 1976: In a Denny’s in Mobile, Alabama, the 105th Eggish Brigade formed to overwhelm the restaurant, and started to march on City Hall. Then the S.W.A.T. team showed up.
To celebrate their “victory”, Denny’s introduced the “Grand Slam” breakfast the following year. Humans still order Grand Slams today.
