Evil egg empire expands exponentially

Changing accent lights part of disturbing trend

Her penguin fixation aside, we have to agree with Craving colleague Caroline McCarthy in her stand against the "color-changey phenomenon." In fact, the issue has become increasingly dire ever since.

Readers of this space will note that we have been warning of egg-based subversion for some time, usually under the guise of audio devices. Then this week, what began as a misguided psychedelic revival crossed into the sinister realm of the Ovo Underground with these color-morphing eggs from HouseOfRave.com. The "Oggz," as they are known, are supposedly harmless accent lights that "change color like magic, transforming colors through the whole rainbow."

We, of course, know better. If they suddenly sprout speakers, their true mission will be revealed. And we will be prepared.

(Note: Fellow Craver Erica Ogg claims no involvement in this latest development. We, however, are withholding judgment.)
