I Can Eat 50 Cadbury Creme Eggs
Not all at the same time. That's gross. No one can do that. My more modest and less lethal goal is to eat 50 by Easter Day. Follow along as I document each egg below.

I'd like to point out that this is not my site. This is my best friend/officemate/life partner's project, but I'm helping take and set up photos. If this was my project, I would have eaten all 50 eggs by this point.

Please do not feel like you have to donate! I am just spreading this around because I think the photos and the idea in general is fun. He tried to do this last year but only made it to 17. Pansy.

Also when I sponsored my egg, I requested a badass drawing of a unicorn fighting a narwhal while a hedgehog watched. So I feel like it's worth a click just to see that drawing pop up at some point.

I love Cadbury Creme Eggs an embarrassing amount. But 50 in a year, let alone 50 days, is really not settling with my stomach well for some reason. Maybe just because I saw the tuna fish sandwich.

So, obviously, I'm going to have to sponsor one.

I'm in for $19.99. I applaud the irony of using confections to fight diabetes. It's like using vodka to fight alcoholism.

I missed the message to the seller thing, so sent an email. Hope it goes well.

Many moons ago I had spent almost the entire contents of my bank account on substances of dubious legality and had a grand total of $20 left to my name. Sadly, I was still a week away from my next paycheck, and I somehow had to feed myself for a week. The only food that I had in the house was an enormous box of Eggo waffles from CostCo; I had neither butter nor syrup to place on those waffles.

As luck would have it, that week was the one immediately following Easter (what my Jewish roommate referred to as "Jewish Easter"; the magical time when all the Easter candy goes on sale). Cadbury Creme Eggs were five for a dollar, so I took the last of my money and bought 100 Cadbury Creme Eggs.

I ate nothing but plain Eggo Waffles and Cadbury Creme Eggs for four days. On the fifty I was invited to a nice shabbos dinner and had gazpacho and brisket, and then it was back to waffles and Cadbury for two days.

Although it was a miserable experience that I would not recommend to anyone, one of the unexpected side benefits is that it saves money on toilet paper. After a few days of waffles and Creme Eggs my digestive tract had decided that it had had enough, and that it would be performing no further duties (heh) until such time as my diet returned to something suitable for human consumption. So, hey, that's something.
