Those egg things.... sometimes it's just a matter of having general culture/education.

You don't need to travel to England to know about the eggcups.
If you've watched British movies, series or read books, surely you've seen the eggcups or heard about them.

I am from Lafayette Indiana and can say I have no idea wtf an "eggcup" is. We just called them what they are... "boiled eggs".

 But apparently some areas sit the boiled egg in its own cup = eggcup. 

In seriousness I find the talk of eggcups on this thread lighthearted. The interview of Stuart not so much. This thread needed some lightness. 

I think we can all agree whether or not we think eggs need their own cup that the removal of videos from YouTube does no good for GnR and has hurt dedicated fans that enjoy sharing with others. YouTube has preserved 1988-92 GnR. Or it did.

So funny. I never realized not everyone had eggcups. Turns out many people in the US don't :lol:

FYI, it's not some posh British thing, common people have them too.

Come to think of it I've never seen an American on a film with an egg cup surrounded by dippy soldiers.

Never heard of an eggcup prior to this thread, and after reading these last few pages I still am not really sure what it is. It's literally a cup to hold one's egg? I'm American, but I don't eat eggs, so I come at this with very little experiential knowledge.

Top left is a "soft boiled egg." Bottom right is a "hard boiled egg."

Eggcups are used for soft boiled eggs so that the top of the shell can be removed so you can get at the egg with out spilling the runny yoke.

Maybe some people use them for hard boiled eggs, also? But not where Im from. Just for soft boiled here.

This is your brain after listening to Guns n Roses, any questions?😄

We cook a soft boiled egg where the centre is still runny then put them in an egg cup, remove the top and dip buttered toast in it. 

Like so.

Here in Detroit, we hard-boil eggs and dye them different colors at Easter time.  Then the Easter Bunny hides them under the couch and behind the TV and shit.

Sometimes we don't find them for days until they start to smell.

Raw eggs, on the other hand, are strictly used for throwing at random garage doors or passing cars on Devil's Night.

Devil's Night is every night in Detroit, isn't it?
