EoMEoTE#17 The End is Nigh: Shocking pictures, page 2!


Eomeotenewspaperannouncement_1 Yes, indeed, the end is nigh – the end of the month, that is.  And we all know what that means… it’s time for the End of Month Egg on Toast Extravaganza. 

Yes folks, it’s the time of month when salaries are due, fridges run low and inspiration runs high.  Just how many ways are there with eggs and bread? [You’d be surprised.  – Ed.]  Well, this is the event where we find out. 

For newcomers to this event, the object of the exercise is to make something creative using eggs and bread/carbohydrates.  It can be sweet, savoury, simple, complex, breakfast, dinner – whatever you like.  The twist I’ve added is to make this an ovo-literary event – if possible I’d like you to post your entry in a particular literary style.  In the past, we’ve had poetry, fan fiction and song lyrics as themes (for the full list, see the end of this post) – something for everyone, really! And this month I have decreed the theme to be… tabloid headlines – think National Enquirer, think The Sun or The Mirror and you’ll get the picture. 

So, to recap:

1. The dish you make needs to include eggs.

2.  The dish you make needs to include bread (or any carbohydrate to which heat has been applied).

3.  Write up your creation on your blog in the style of a tabloid headline or article – even just the title in the form of a tabloid headline will do.  Pictures are always good (I can see it now – "Aliens ate my toast!" – a grainy blob that could be ANYTHING!)

4.  Try to have this all done by next weekend – say Sunday 6 August.

5.  Send me an e-mail or leave a comment on this post alerting me to your contribution.  I will then do a round-up shortly after the 6th.

Have fun!

    Hi Sam
    Ooooh yes, this has been your most anticipated EoMEoTE yet!! And I hope you have a ball with the headlines. Don’t tabloid headlines make you long for The Sun? Theirs are the gold standard of exuberant tackiness…

    Ooh yeah, right down my alley – the weird and wonderful. Right, thinking cap on. BTW thanks for the link to the newspaper headline generator, you know how I am about pictures!

    Hahahaha!! I love your newspaper article! Of course, you know that it isn’t very authentic. You’ve shown an awful lot of text (thrilling text though) on the first page….

    I go out of town for a couple of days, and *that’s* when you decide to spring the announcement, eh?
    I smell a conspiracy!

    Fortunately, I’m back, and I have a week-ish to get this together.
    You can count me in!

    Hehehehehe… I LOVE playing with the newspaper clipping generator. (I promise this is the last time.) But I got scared by the threat of reprisal that I hadn’t fulfilled rules 1 and 2. So guessing that rule 4 is a little less rigid, I grovelling present my post for EoMEoTE17 revisited:
