Norwegian chefs working in South Korea for the Winter Olympics ordered a large quantity of eggs for all those hungry athletes, but they got a little more than they needed. Ten times more.
Instead of ordering 1,500 eggs, Google Translate arranged for a delivery of 15,000 eggs to Pyeongchang.
Twitter had questions. Like, "Why are you sitting on those eggs?"

At least they’ll be plenty of eggs to go with the smoked salmon 😋— Mr. Sarcastic (@mrsarcasticass1) February 8, 2018
