When I told my boys that we had a mammoth egg and that they should come and see it, they were awe struck. "But,..... aren't they....... extinct?!?"
All that needs to be said about this has already been said in one succinctly brilliant post by Sairer at Vintage, Pretty and Shabby in her post entitled,"Massive". She's the one who suggests that the french word for egg - "oeuf" - is much more descriptive (oooof!) of a hen's efforts with these things. Leave it to the french (I say fondly).......
Well, that's my scandalous post for the day!
