saturday hunt - local

Well, still no access to camera, and this time I have to do an audio hunt submission. When I saw the word was local, the first thing that came to mind was: "brown eggs are local eggs and local eggs are fresh" It was an advertising campaign in the 80's in Massachusetts.

Here's the NPR story on brown eggs vs white eggs that will have the ad.

Here's a blurb from Megnut:
From NPR's "All Things Considered," White Eggs, Brown Eggs: What's the Difference? Anyone who grew up in Massachusetts in the eighties can tell you, without having to even listen to the audio: "Brown eggs are local eggs, and local eggs are fresh!" At least, that's what the TV was always telling me. And it sure stuck, I always buy brown eggs. I only buy white eggs if that's all they sell, and I do so begrudgingly.

I thought you grew up in New Jersey, not Massachusetts.

Of course, I am someone who firmly believe that it is what is on the inside that counts more than the outside. With that in mind, I prefer my eggs scrambled or in an omelet.

Nice job on the improvisation. Eggs are eggs....you have to break them to use them.

I thought they just fed the hens a diet that changed the colour of the shells/yolks...?

I grew up on a farm and cannot eat "farm fresh eggs" from markets and such. I know the potential for them being fertilized. Ugh. I had eggs for breakfast. I feel sick now.

My earlier years were in RI, which really half the time is a suburb of Massachusetts.
Thanks Evile-sorry I haven't had photos.
Puss, I have no idea.
Susan, you're grossing me out now.
