Egg recall: journalists can't resist yolky headlines

The egg recall is no laughing matter. The recall is up to half a billion eggs in 22 states. That's 'b' as in BILLION. I am particularly aggravated because I gave up meat and practically do not eat anything except eggs.

However, as a former journalist, I enjoy seeing the headline writers take liberties with puns. Here's some:

--US scrambles to recall 500 million eggs - ABC News

--It's a case calling for some hard-boiled detectives RT

--Bart goes after bad eggs

--DeLauro and Waxman, Leaving No Shell Unturned, Ask for Egg Recall Info

Ok, enough with the fun, guys!

As for the egg recall, it is very serious. More information here
