Getting To Know You #1 - Erik, The E Of EGG

Buzz has been buzzing about the return of one of the pioneers of the podcasting phenomenon. That pioneer? The EGG In The Morning Show. Known for their poor planning and random anecdotes, The boys (and occasional girls) of EGG have been lacing up their boots for another round of, what they affectionately call, mock radio for you.

In the wake of their earth shattering announcement of their imminent return to the interwebs, people have been chomping at the bit with hard hitting questions like, "What's a Gene Joner?", "What radio station are they on again?" and "Why are you calling me?"

Erik & his lovely bride!
We hit the streets to find out answers to your questions because we here, at the EGG In The Morning Blog Site, care. We have been following Erik, the E of EGG, around his hometown of Vancouver, WA for the better part of a week and we were finally able to finagle him into the trunk of our car. We questioned him for hours, demanding the answers you've been seeking. Here's what we were able to find out --

EGG In The Morning Blog: So, Erik. The fans of EGG need to know -- If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?

Erik: Hide it?! Heck, I would ride it! To work, to the opera, to the bathroom even. Although, if I rode an elephant to the bathroom, I would need to start planning ahead because I have a really bad habit of waiting until the last possible minute.

EITMB: Tell me about it. Peeing is such a chore. Alright, so tell me -- what are your favorite color of socks to wear?

E: You know, I went back and forth for years between black and white. Black or white, black or white, black or white. Finally, I came to the conclusion that the first thing I should do is get some pants.

EITMB: That's all well and good but do you wear boxers or briefs?

E: Both. At the same time. You can never be too careful.

EITMB: Erik, do you enjoy your celebrity status?

E: Gah, I was afraid this question was going to come up. My best guess is OHMIGAWD YES!! I can't tell you how many times I have been out at a mall or a sporting event and people have seen me, recognized me, immediately stopped eating whatever they had in their mouths and walked over to me, handing me what they have left saying, "Thank you for not killing me softly with your good looks." I would do anything for my fans.

EITMB: *hork-hup* Sorry, I just threw up a little in my mouth. Speaking of food, where is your favorite place to eat?

E: Well, it really depends on how loud the food I'm eating is. Like, if I have a fresh bowl of corn flakes, my favorite place to eat is a library or a funeral service. But if we're just talking a bowl of Kraft Mac N' Cheese, I will eat anywhere the elephant drops me off.

EITMB: What is this? I don't even-- okay. Let's get back to something that's a little more prevalent on America's mind. If you were a biscuit, which would you be?

E: Doggie, hands down. I mean, our fans are like dogs. Soooooooo loyal. I want to be their reward when they remember to not go potty on the floor.

EITMB: You know, I think I've about had my fill. I'm gonna untie you now. Anything else you want to say before I let you go?


Just remember, you asked for that. I need to find me some liquors. Join us next time for a similarly silly session with the legend himself, Gene Joner! The second G of EGG!
