Go to work on an Egg

Tony Hancock
The British Egg Information service, who know a lot about eggs, had planned to repeat the 1950s "go to work on an egg" adverts featuring Tony Hancock. Unfortunately, the Advertising Standards people have said that the adverts cannot be shown now because they don't promote a balanced and varied diet.

In the example being shown on the BBC News site, one of the protagonists is tucking into his 4th egg of the day, with Hancock understandably upset that his egg stock is being diminished.

You can read more about this nonsense at the British Egg Information Service website.
