Norway Winter Olympic team orders 15000 eggs by mistake

Chefs for Norway's Winter Olympics team revealed they accidentally ordered 15,000 eggs instead of 1,500

Norway Olympic team has been left with egg on its face after ordering, well, too many eggs!

Olympic athletes require plenty of protein, but not this much. So what would you make if you suddenly had 15,000 eggs in your kitchen?

The result: instead of getting 1,500 eggs delivered for their team of athletes, they got a shipment of 15,000, as they reported ruefully to news agencies.

Chefs for the Norwegian Winter Olympic team thought they had ordered 1,500 eggs when they received a Saturday delivery in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The Guardian comes to Google Translate's defense, saying that while reports lay the blame there, it thinks there could have been another wrinkle.

Joker Movie Aiming to Cast Joaquin Phoenix
Variety reports that three-time Oscar-nominee Joaquin Phoenix is being eyed by Warner Bros. for the part. There had been rumors that Leonardo DiCaprio would take on the role but the plan fell through.

Fortunately for the team, who, according to Johansen have enjoyed eating fresh salmon and tacos in the past, once the chefs realised their mistake they were able to return the 13,500 surplus to the grocer.

Norwegian chef de mission Tore Ovrebo struggled to suggest what they will do with the delivery, but did not rule out consuming them. Excellent sources of both of those nutrients, widely consumed by athletes, happen to be eggs.

Norway has the highest all-time Winter Olympics medal count, with 329 medals amassed since the first Winter Games in 1924.

"They said themselves that it was a Google translate slip", Lea said. "In the meantime we are hoping for 30 medals", Mr Ovrebo said.
