Avoid Burro Poop At ‘Egg-Cellent’ Festival

OATMAN, Ariz. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Watch out for burro poop when frying an egg at one kooky cooking festival.

The 19th Annual Sidewalk Egg Frying Contest sizzles into Oatman, Arizona, this Saturday (Jul. 4), where folks will cook up eggs on the ground using nothing but the hot Arizona sun and homemade contraptions.

Participants will have to be careful what they cook at the “egg-citing” competition, however, because burros roam free on the streets of Oatman, often taking a poop wherever they please.

Spokesperson Jackie Rowland says residents try to chase the burros away to keep them from entering the competition grounds so they don’t end up dropping a deuce on anyone’s egg.

She says, “We won’t let them cook a burro biscuit with gravy.”

Even if the burro’s crap doesn’t end up in the eggs, Rowland says it’s not a good idea for anyone to eat any of them because “burro poo dust” may float into them without anyone realizing it.
