I was bidding on a boxed set of "Back to the Egg" on ebay and it seems to have been removed by the seller.  A shame, even though the postage from France would have sunk me if I won.

It was a very nice looking set; with t-shirt, book, buttons, what looked like plastic eggs – oh, and I think there was a CD in there somewhere :)

Back to the Drawing Board, eh?

Sorry, couldn't resist. Hate that for you, though. Back to the Egg's quite good, too.

If y'all don't quit picking on trcanberra, the poor soul might get hard-boiled about it.

This man lost an auction and you people are cracking jokes? What hard shells you must all have. Why can't you set a better eggsample?

Apologies. Lets just hope the auctioneer did just remove the item down to his own choice and it wasn't poached. I just hope it wasn't an eggstraordinary item.

What would trcanberra do if he ever got close enough to this traitor who took this item away, this Benedict, to see the whites of his eyes?

I bet the seller was a chicken and turned yellow near the time.

Oh well, if he really wants to sell it I'm sure he'll be back.

(Get it? He'll be BACK! As in "…to the egg"!)
