Quite amusing
3 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought that this comedy short was quite amusing. Curly Joe DiRita did a stellar job as lead character. Good Bad Egg was fitting title, lead character mentioning dislike for eggs (and for chickens)! I can sympathize with him as eggs are OK with me IF prepared in way that they do not TASTE LIKE eggs! (I never was fond of sulfur, but the incredible edible egg CAN be prepared in various ways that one would not taste the sulfur.) The inventions were basically phony, first the dish washer that ruined the "wife's" best dishes, which she had worked ten years to obtain. Then the crazy inventor came up with a CLOTHES WASHER which was no good either. All in all, it was quite funny.
