Fried Eggs, Hold The Donkey Poop

It's so hot in Arizona, you could literally fry an egg on the sidewalk -- just watch out for the surrounding donkey poop.

OATMAN, Ariz. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Folks in Oatman, Arizona, are ordering up some fried eggs – hold the donkey poop.

The 20th Annual Sidewalk Egg Frying Contest is heading to the former gold mining town on the Fourth of July in celebration of the sizzling hot summer weather.

Participants are given 15 minutes to fry an egg on the sidewalk using anything but open flames.

Spokesperson Rich Godder says folks use all sorts of contraptions to get their eggs cooking in the sun, including magnifying glasses, aluminum foil, and even high-powered solar panels.

What they really need to worry about, though, are the wild burros that wander through the area.

The asses tend to poop all over the place, so doo-doo dust will probably be wafting through the air and hiding in the concrete on the day of the frying frenzy.

That’s why Godder doesn’t recommend anyone actually eat their sidewalk fried eggs.
