A puzzle,

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Ever notice how the kids can fiqure these puzzles out, And old me was stumped, and then when you hear the answer, Man I should have fiqured that out.

You threw away the outside, and cooked the inside. Then you ate the outside and threw away the inside. What did you eat? love Irene

sounds like an egg to my kids, throw away the outside, cook the inside, eat the outside (white) and throw away the inside (yolk)!
