My name is archiver and I am a tea drunkard...

This may not be the weirdest old advert ever and it may not be the most depressing or bewildering but it is certainly up there with the funniest. (Although this one still makes us laugh after many years...)

If you or a friend know of anyone who was driven to murder by too many eggs, do let us know.

Taken from an Orkney Herald dated 21st September 1898.


  1. In 1902 my great-great-grandfather was murdered by a friend who had eaten too many eggs. He was yoked to death.


Are you delighted by what you have just read? Are you revulsed and appalled? Do let us know, we'd love to hear from you.
