YouNews Hawkcited! Hawkcited!

Peeling hard boiled eggs is no big deal, if you only have to peel one or two of them. But peeling a lot of boiled eggs can be a time-consuming hassle. Some of our egg-loving viewers are very curious about TV and internet ads for a product called the Eggstractor. It sells online for $14.99 plush shipping and handling. It seems the promoters are trying to scramble up some new business, because we tested this back in 2004 - and it doesn't appear much has changed.
