Lenny Bruce told the story of working on a farm as a kid, where they sold the
eggs laid by the hens..when they didn't have enough, Lenny would be deputized to
go to the market and buy store-boughten ones which they'd then put in their own
containers, after first making sure to rub them in chicken guano. The customers
always raved about how fresh the eggs were.
Oh wait a minute, that's the same story.
