EGGSISTENTIAL GUIDE TO EATING YOUR ART OUT Today, a complete Post-Modernist tale entitled: “Eggs any Style”. When you have booked yourself in for a fortnight at a seaside hotel to get away from it all, the last thing you want is another set problems. But, as the man found 8
Стр.8
out, even at a seaside hotel there are new problems. Such as what to have for breakfast. The man studied the breakfast menu on the first day and hesitated. There were things on the menu that he hadn’t eaten for months. Things that sounded simultaneously tempting and threatening. Black budding. Kippers. Arbroath smokies…. “May I take your order, sir?” He looked up into the face of the waiter, a smooth expressionless face. He smiled at the waiter. The waiter did not smile back. Suddenly he felt animosity towards the waiter. He looked again at the menu. His eye fell on an item he had not noticed before. It said, “Eggs, any style”. “I’d like eggs, please,” he said “How would you like them?” “Art Deco.” “Excuse me, sir?” “It says, ‘eggs any style’. My favorite style is Art Deco.” The waiter’s face flickered ever so slightly. “I’ll see what can be done, sir”. He returned ten minutes later with a boiled egg sitting at the top in a very thin, very tall, undeniably Art Deco eggcup. It had a very long, undeniably 1920s spoon with it. “Thank you”, the man said “Not at all,” said the waiter the next morning at breakfast the man looked the waiter in the eye and asked for neo-classical eggs. “I’ll see what can be done, sir,” said the waiter He returned with a plate of scrambled eggs, arranged tastefully under a Palladian arch of toast. “Thank you”, said the man “Not at all,” said the waiter on the third day the man asked for Fauvist eggs. “I beg your pardon, sir?” said the waiter . “Fauvist. Fauvism was a short-lived painting movement which preceded Cubism, distinguished by its love of bright colors and bold shapes…” “I am perfectly well aware of the nature of the Fauvist movement, sir”, said the waiter. “I was just not sure whether you had actually said ‘Fauvist’. “It sounded a little also like Fascist and a little like Vorticist and a little like…” “Fauvist,” said the man “Very good, sir,” said the waiter. What he brought back was a plate of eggs loosely cooked and dyed with purple and red, smeared across the plate to look like an angry sunset. It was inedible. But it was undeniably Fauvist. “Thank you,” said the man, pushing the mixture to the side of the plate. “Not at all, sir”, said the waiter, taking the plate away. 9

On succeeding days the man asked for his eggs to be done in a dizzying variety of styles. Futurist, absurdist, Celtic revivalist, Early English, Jazz Age, even melodramatic. The waiter, backed by the imaginative kitchen, was never once baffled. The Celtic revivalist eggs had come coddled in a nest of seaweed. The Jazz Age eggs were done with gin. For the eggs in the style of the melodrama, the waiter had brought them simply boiled, then yelled out: “For God’s sake, sir, before you eat those eggs, think of your daughter Nell who even now is being seduced by her cruel landlord for a matter of rent money so small that you could easily have paid it yourself for a very small price of these eggs themselves, which have incidentally been poisoned not a moment ago in the kitchen by the very woman you wronged so many years ago in Calcutta!!!” The rest of the dining room had listened aghast, but the man had to agree that the waiter could not be faulted. On the last day, at breakfast, the man asked for his eggs to be done in a post- modernist style. “We at this hotel do not think that post-modernism is worthy to be called a style, sir,” said the waiter coldly. “It is merely a ragbag of cultural mannerism.” “So you will not bring me a post-modernist style egg?” “No, sir.” The two men stared at each other, eyes deadlocked. “In the case,” said the man, “bring me Abroath smokies.” The waiter went away triumphant. He told the kitchen that they had outsmarted the egg-eater. In fact, the truth was quite different, after nearly two weeks of eggs, the man was desperately constipated and needed almost no excuse to choose something else. (by Miles Kington, Independent 11/09/96) http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1P2-4810136.html c) Answer the following questions: 1. Why should the guest have decided to order eggs in different art styles? 2.
