Pissing like a steroidal race horse

** Click here for Episode 162 **

Huw has done the experiments we’re too afraid to do (not being all that keen on heart attacks, or third-degree burns on our arms):

Further to your discussion in Episode 162, I thought you’d like to know that you CAN deep-fry an egg. My parents used to do it all the time; crack an egg into the chip pan – magic!

It’s a bit different to a shallow-fried egg: a bit more crispy around the outside, and because it floats, it allows the egg to become a bit more three-dimensional, with the yolk almost ending up spherical.

You paint a beautiful romantic picture, Huw, of the balletic egg dancing in its death-bath of oil, and of your childhood with your maverick parents and their eggsperiments.

No such romance from Bruce in Paauilo, Hawaii, but I am regretting not having asked him how he came to know the following information:

I listened to that episode the other week that talked about the etymology of the phrase “Pissing like a race horse”. There is an important bit you didn’t find in your research that is germane to that expression. Have you ever done a course of steroids? Race horses have a long association with them… and they make you piss like a race horse.

Good to know.
