    Dunno about them.  To hard.  Maybe some T.S. Elliot's Love song of J Alfred Prufrock

    LET us go then, you and I,   
    When the evening is spread out against the sky   
    Like a brisket etherized upon a table;   
    Let us go, through certain half-burned lumps,   
    The muttering thumps           
    Of restless nights keeping lump alight   
    And sawdust smokers with acrid fumes:   
    The stall that follow like a tedious argument   
    Of insidious intent   
    To lead you to an overwhelming question….           
    Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”   
    When it's done it's done, then we visit.   
     
    In the room the women come and go narry   
    Talking, of Guy Fieri.

    Mr Leopold Bloom ate with mustard and relish the egged inner organs of beasts and fowls. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards over mesqite lump, a stuffed roast heart, liverslices egg grilled with crustcrumbs, hencods' roes en papillote. Most of all he liked low and slow mutton kidneys which gave to his palate a fine tang of faintly scented urine and applewood.

    Kidneys were in his mind as he moved about the egg softly, righting her breakfast things on the humpy tray. Gelid light and air were not in the kitchen but out of doors gentle summer morning everywhere. Smoke from the egg made him feel a bit peckish.

    The coals were reddening.

    Another slice of grilled bread and butter: three, four: right. She didn't like her plate full. Right. He turned from the tray, lifted the kettle off the egg and set it sideways on the fire. It sat there, dull and squat, its spout stuck out of the dome. Cup of tea soon. Good. Mouth dry.

    "Come, Egg’s compliments to ye; come and see if ye can serve me. Serve me? ye cannot serve me, else ye serve yourselves! man has ye there. Serve me? The path to my adjustable rig is laid with iron grate, whereon my steak is grooved to sear. Over unsounded flames , through the rifled wisps of smoke , under torrents’ beds of coals, unerringly I sear! Naught’s an obstacle, naught’s an greater force to the cast iron way!"

    - Moby Dick, Herman Eggville

    Every Who down in Who-ville liked Christmas a lot...

    But the Grinch, who lived north of Who-ville did not!

    The Grinch hated Christmas!  The whole Christmas season!  Now, please don't ask why.  No one quite knows the reason.  It could be his dome wasn't screwed on just right.  It could be, perhaps, that his Egg wouldn't light.  But I think that the most likely reason of all may have been that his lump was two sizes too small.

    But, whatever the reason, the lump, dome or what, he stood there on Christmas Eve with a cold raw pork butt.  Staring down from his cave with a sour Grinchy frown at the warm lighted Eggs below in the town.  For he knew every Who down in Who-ville below was busy now, Egging happily in the snow. 

    He wasn't just smart, he was a doctor!  Thanks Dr. Suess!

  • Guys, Eggcelsior and I talked about cut and pasting these into a separate string in OT that might have a life longer than my OP.  How's that sound?

    Eggcelsior, who started this, suggested calling it Literary Eggscursions.

    "You're an egghead. You've lost touch with reality . You get precious. Cen-Tex's cooks have ruined you. You drink yourself to death. You become obsessed by" clear smoke". You spend all your time egging, not working. You are an egghead , see. You hang around forums."

    “But I don’t want to go among egging people," Alice remarked.

    "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all eggers here. I’m an egger. You’re egger."

    "How do you know I’m egger?" said Alice.

    "You must be an egger," said the Cat, or you wouldn’t have come here.”

    “Egging is one of the greatest human gifts. But all too often a search for the perfect brisket temp drives out the search for the perfect meat... Egging without the ability to wait for "no resistance" and pulling early leads to mental and moral breakdown, to tough meat, and possibly even psychosis. Then, a gasser. ”

    ― Egging for Algeron, Daniel Keyes

    “Gassers are alright, I guess — but it doesn't appeal to me", I said. "I mean they're alright if they go around cooking burgers and dogs all the time, and like that, but you don't do that kind of stuff if you're a egger. All you do is make a lot of dough and roll out pizzas and wok shrimp and buy wood chunks and drink Martinis and look like a hot-shot. And besides, even if you did go around grilling burgers and dogs, how would you know if you did it because you really wanted to save time, or because you did it because what you really wanted to do was be a terrific egger, with everybody slapping you on the back and congratulating you in the forum when the goddam post was over, the members and everybody, the way it is at the Eggfest? How would you know you weren't being jealous? The trouble is you wouldn't. Just get the egg. ”

    If you can talk with trolls and keep your virtue
    Or walk with Doc --- nor lose the common touch
    If neither burns nor massive flame ups can hurt you
    If all Eggs count with you, but none too much
    If you can fill the unforgiving grid space
    With sixty pounds of hamburger and bun
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And--what is more--- you'll be an Egger, my son.

    We cringed in the shadows, having fled in terror, but VI remained, and even strode forward defiantly to seize the dome handle.

    "You cannot flash! I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the Flame of Royal Oak. The dark fire will not avail you, Flame of XL! Go back to the shadow. You shall not flash!"

    An behold, he raised the dome, and no flames licked at his arms.

    Women desire six things: They want their husbands to be brave, wise, rich, generous, obedient to wife, and lively on the egg.

    EGGrey Chaucer
  • "What's to-day?" cried Scrooge, calling downward to a boy in Sunday clothes, who perhaps had loitered in to look about him.

    "Eh?" returned the boy, with all his might of wonder.

    "What's to-day, my fine fellow?" said Scrooge.

    "To-day?" replied the boy. "Why, Christmas Day."

    "It's Christmas Day!" said Scrooge to himself. "I haven 't missed it. The Spirits have done it all in one night. They can do anything they like. Of course they can. Of course they can. Hallo, my fine fellow!"

    "Hallo!" returned the boy

    "Do you know the Barbeque Store, in the next street but one, at the corner?" Scrooge inquired.

    "I should hope I did," replied the lad.

    "An intelligent boy!" said Scrooge. "A remarkable boy! Do you know whether they've sold the Extra Large Big Green Egg that was standing inside? Not the Mini, Small, Medium or Large; but the Extra Large one?"

    "What, the one as big as me?" returned the boy.

    "What a delightful boy!" said Scrooge. "It's a pleasure to talk to him. Yes, my buck!"

    "It's sitting there now," replied the boy.

    "Is it?" said Scrooge. "Go and buy it."

    "Are you daft, Sir!" exclaimed the boy.

    "No, no," said Scrooge, "I am in earnest. Go and buy it, and tell 'em to bring it here, that I may give them the direction where to take it. Come back with the man, and I'll give you a shilling. Come back with him in less than five minutes, and I'll give you half-a-crown!"

    "I'll send it to Bob Cratchit's!" whispered Scrooge, rubbing his hands, and splitting with a laugh. "He shall have lump, and a Plate Setter, and a great Christmas goose.  He sha'n't know who sends it. It's twice the size of Tiny Tim.”
