Look closely – Yes, you read that correctly, it says “Contains egg”.

Kind of reminds me of Wonko the Sane and the toothpicks in Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. If you’re that stupid that you need to be told that eggs contain eggs then you’re hardly likely to be able to read this on the box. What drives food producers to put this sort of blindingly obvious stuff on packaging? What stops them sitting back and saying “Wait a minute, this looks stupid”?
