Disaster Egg

I thought I was being organised, buying an Easter egg a month early.

It was quite a posh one and I thought it would be the perfect gift.
The egg looked stunning; wonderfully decorated.

When I got it home, I studied it through the box - it was magnificently detailed, like a bronze statue.

But I stupidly left it out in the kitchen.

The sun doesn't get very strong there; however I didn't consider that the plastic packaging would act like a lens, focusing the sunlight into the box.

You'll notice there's a sizeable "exit" burn in the back of the egg as well.

I can't give this away now.

I don't know what to do with it.

No idea.

Oh well...

Happy Chocolate Day Easter everyone



Melt it down and pour it over ice cream instead "yum", its not as if its infectious or something.

How would a flat layer of plastic act as a lens? Silly Suman. Would act like a greenhouse though - lets in energy as light, and won't let it out again once it's scattered inside and converted to heat... *pretends to understand physics*

You definitely can't eat that though, radiation danger. You'll have to send it to me to dispose of safely for you.
