Dad Eats Bad Egg And His “Timeline of Disaster” Goes Viral

Image shows two partial clips of Dave's journal after he suffered food poisoning from eating a bad egg.

Hopefully, you have never eaten a bad egg and will never experience the agony that this poor dad went through. If you have eaten a bad egg, then you will be able to sympathize with Dave Eames. His response to the incident, recorded in his daily journal, was hilarious. His son shared the bi-fold pages of Dave’s journal on X (Twitter), and we can’t stop laughing at Dave’s misfortune.

The journal entry began normal enough, with a comment about colder weather and a shoutout to his favorite sportsball team.

Dave’s journal looks fun, with creative drawings and bright colors. But things got a little more intense on the lower half of the page. Dave explained that the family had breakfast for dinner before watching the game. He pointed out the little culprit that caused his downfall.

The next page describes, in graphic detail, the exact nature of Dave’s distress.

The image Dave drew shows him expelling his breakfast for dinner throughout the night. His belly was rebelling against the bad egg, and his legs were cramping. Medically speaking, the cramps were probably the result of dehydration from the vomiting, but I’m no doctor. Dave wasn’t done drawing, though. The lower half of the page included what he terms the “Timeline of Disaster.”

Thursday saw Dave recovering from the “Episode of the Bad Egg.” His wife stayed home from work to nurse him, and the family dog stayed close.
