Grosser than gross: Peter Petrie egg separator

It's an egg separator, but it's so much more. Or less.


Got boys in the 6- to 10-year-old range? Hang out with immature people? Really like gross stuff? If you can answer yes to any of these, then you might actually enjoy the Peter Petrie egg separator.

Although this ceramic beauty will never grace my kitchen counters, you may feel differently. Use is straightforward--crack an egg into the separator and tilt it forward. The egg white drips through the nostrils (ewww!) and into your bowl, where you can whip it up into meringue or turn it into an egg white omelet, or do whatever it is that people do with egg whites.

The yolk is blocked by the nose, so you can dump it out separately and use it in your cholesterol-laden goodies as you please.

If you actually want to buy this gem, you can order it online--from the bargain price of $13.
