We’ve all heard that old chestnut, but here’s the problem: in Death Valley last week, so many morons have been trying to actually do it that Park Rangers had to take to their Facebook page to beg people to stop.
“An employee’s posting of frying an egg in a pan in Death Valley was intended to demonstrate how hot it can get here, with the recommendation that if you do this, use a pan or tin foil and properly dispose of the contents. However, the Death Valley NP maintenance crew has been busy cleaning up eggs cracked directly on the sidewalk, including egg cartons and shells strewn across the parking lot. This is your national park, please put trash in the garbage or recycle bins provided and don’t crack eggs on the sidewalks, or the Salt Playa at Badwater.”
After the jump, see a video of a Park Ranger frying an egg outside…
I’m not saying that tourists shouldn’t have enough sense to pick up after themselves, but maybe if you don’t want people cooking eggs outside, don’t release a video of yourself cooking eggs outside??
Frankly, I’m surprised the Internet is in such a tizzy about this. You really want a viral video sensation? Send Kate Upton to Death Valley and have her fry up some bacon. On the hood of the DeLorean from Back to the Future. To the Nyan Cat song.
