It's always good to take a look at life... sunny side up.

Re: Why does a Frenchman only have one egg for breakfast?

Reminds me of the first time I went to the States. I was having breakfast when the Brit sitting at the next table was asked how he'd like his egg. He presumably wanted it turned over as he thought for a minute and then said "errm ... sunny side ... down?" .
