it depends on how long you kept it sitting on the counter to show off to your friends and family.  mine has been there for nearly a year.  I probably shouldn't eat it.

We threw our first egg over the house today and it didn't break!  yippiechickie
So we got to throw it AND eat it.  Is that good luck?

We blew ours out and kept the shell... then scrambled up the insides and fed it to the hen that laid it.  She loved it.
