As loyal readers know, Nanny and certain "research" institutes never cease to come up with spurious ways to waste time and money on research that provides humanity with conclusions/findings that are bugger all use to anyone.
Step forward the British Egg Council and Mindlab which, using "sophisticated" maths and data mining, recently concluded that there is a statistical relationship between a person's character, lifestyle and social class and whether they like their eggs boiled, fried, scrambled or as an omelette.
The Telegraph reports that poached egg eaters are outgoing, listen to upbeat music and are happier, boiled egg consumers are disorganised, fried egg fans have a high sex drive, scrambled egg aficionados are guarded and omelette eaters are self-disciplined.
Seemingly the average poached egg-eater is likely to have two children, and no more than one sibling and is more likely to be a woman than a man.
Boiled egg-eaters had a tendency to be careless and impulsive.
Fried egg-eaters are most likely to be younger and male and most frequently found among the skilled working classes.
Scrambled egg-eaters are more likely to be in managerial or senior-level jobs and also to own their own home, and omelette eaters are likely to have a tidy home.
Under normal circumstances we would expect Nanny to try to use these "findings" to manipulate/control us. However, as she loathes eggs, I suspect she is in rather a bind over what to do with them.
Personally I enjoy fried eggs (two or three at one sitting), yet I am neither "young" nor "skilled working class" (although I do work); so that rather puts the kibosh on the quality of that research then!
