    HUH....

    Well, he was selling eggs for me at work, and one of his coworkers claims there is another word for it.... and although I don't know what term he is referring to, I don't want to discount what he is saying. So, if anyone has been told it is something more "technical" than Egg Song, I would love to know. Even Googling it did not give me anything, so I am somewhat stumped...

    Anyone?

    Anyone?

    Bueller? Bueller? LOL... ok showing my age....

    I'm sure he'd love to hear some of those.


    As for me, never heard it called anything else. Used to call it "buh-garking" before we found out it was called the egg song. I think the "egg song" is already quite technical as it is. :p
