IN September, CBS plans to start using a new place to advertise its fall television lineup: your breakfast.

Well, we already have ads on our bananas, apples, and tomatoes. Why not eggs as well?

The etching is ultrathin, to a depth of 50 to 90 micrometers, or 5 percent of the shell

When I was at 5 Below (A line of teen-oriented stores where everything costs 5 dollars or less for reference) they had these “magic bean” plants.  They came in a soda can type setup, just add water and a plant would grow.

The “magic” part was that there was a fortune etched on the cotyledon of the plant, it would show up when the plant put forth its first shoots.

Here is an example

http://www.magicbeanforyou.com/home.html

These guys will actually print a custom message on the bean for company specifics (hmm.. a museum of hoaxes bean plant?)

I’d like to know how they do that… writing on the inside of a bean before it germinates… Im assuming its something along the line of what Llama was talking about with the acid on t he hardboiled eggs… but one would think that would kill the plant?

Forget the eggs, CBS!  Put your ads on the gas pumps.

Pay my local Thorntons a fee for putting your ad on their gas pumps and let them use the profit to make my pumping experience less financially painful.

I’ll stare at your ads without a complaint.
