Eggstraordinarily stupid.

CBS will stamp ads for its TV shows on 35 million egg shells in grocery stores this September, including such slogans as “CBS Monday: Funny Side Up” and “CSI: Crack the Case on CBS.”

Um. Are you kidding me? No really, are we being punked? Who … wait … I- I gotta lie down and rest. Stupidity is contagious and I really don’t want to get it.

    That’s stupid. But if it’s true, I’ll be paying extra for eggs at the local farm.

    How did CBS get the chickens to co-operate and lay eggs with marketing messages on it? Were they promised a new series like “Amazing Chicken Race” or “How I met your Rooster?” How about CSI, Henhouse?

    Ohh, wait…I missed the part about it being stamped on the eggs. My bad.

    I heard they will be stamping Katie Couric’s pic on some of the eggs as well. Geee, can’t wait – NOT!
