Egging
The Washington Post reports on a growing epidemic of eggings. As they say, "Nationwide, there is evidence of eggings escalating into much more than a practical joke." The reporter, Mitra Kalita, actually called me up to get a quote about this issue, and so if you go to the very end of the article (on the second page) you'll be able to read my profound thoughts about the phenomenon of egging. To tell the truth, I've never egged anyone in my life, so I didn't feel like much of an expert on the topic. But I do run a website about hoaxes and pranks, so I guess that makes me as much of an 'egging expert' (or egg-spert) as anyone.

Apparently the Museum of Hoaxes just got egged -- although not in the generally eggcepted way -- maybe the news item is not that "hoaxy" after all?

Egging, is the act of doing nothing.
It is translated from the spanish version of "haciendo huevo" or "hueveando" which implies playing with your testicles in lieu of nothing better to do.
