>> There'll be plenty of protein for athletes in the Norway winter olympic camp, after a Google translate fail from their team chef led to a somewhat scrambled message. And the delivery of 15,000 eggs instead of 1,500. Norway's Chef de mission told reporters when the order arrived from a local South Korean supermarket, the eggs just kept coming, and had press cracking up when asked about it at a news conference.
>> The eggs was more like a misunderstanding than something that we needed. So it was an extra zero on the order, so it went from 1,500 to 15,000. Shit happens.>>
If they keep the order, he now faces the bizarre task of thinking up ways to use the eggs.
While the average person could probably handle one fried egg, it'll have to be more like five a day. If the norwegian camp wants to avoid food waste, each person will have to tuck away 124 eggs each.
