Norway's Olympic team given 15000 eggs due to translation error

Team Norway will be eating a lot of eggs this winter olympics after 15,000 eggs were delivered instead the 1500 they wanted

Norway's Winter Olympics team received a surprise delivery of 15,000 eggs after accidentally ordering ten times the amount they wanted.

They'd meant to order 1,500 eggs, the chefs said, to make omelets, fried eggs and other dishes for their team of over 100 athletes.

Thanks to a scrambled translation, Norway's Olympic team almost ended up with enough eggs to make breakfast for everyone in Olympic Village.

The Norwegian Olympic team chefs, though, may have outdone themselves just a tad when a Google Translate error at a South Korean grocery store ended in 15,000 eggs being delivered to their site, as opposed to 1,500. But because none of the chefs could speak Korean, they ran their list through - what else - Google Translate. But last week, he was shocked when 15,000 eggs showed up in his kitchen.

That's the dilemma chefs for Norway's Olympic team had to deal with after a simple translation error in their order.

"When the truck showed up, they started to carry in the eggs".

Tore Ovrebo, head of the Norwegian team, blamed a typo for the error, and said he was anxious about what would happen to all the excess eggs.

Twitter users had fun making puns about the eggs and speculating about how they might get used. Might we also suggest some sugar bread, whatever that is (cake?), for the athletes who don't win medals, Chef Johansen? And Chef Ståle Johansen still promises all kinds of egg-based treats for his athletes, including, as he told Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten, "sugar bread made for medal winners".
