Opening Arguments


Don't want to spoil your breakfast or anything, but:

It might make a larger omelette but a bigger egg isn't necessarily a better one — and it certainly doesn't make the hen that laid it very happy.

That is the view of the chairman of the British Free Range Producers' Association, who says that if you want to be kind to hens, you should eat medium, not large or very large, eggs.

“It can be painful to the hen to lay a larger egg,” Tom Vesey.

And, of course, you should have small rather than large strips of bacon with that. Wouldn't do to be kind to the chickens and forget all about the pigs.
