I am a firm believer that a man's (or a woman') choice in beer says nothing about their character. It is merely a preference.

This, however, does not apply to hard liquor, and definitely not to cocktails. As a rule, I always watch what I say around a man drinking a gin martini.

Another thing that speaks volumes about a person is their preference in mattress firmness. I have it down to an art. After knowing someone for a few weeks, I can accurately guess whether they are a firm or a soft mattress sleeper at least 80% of the time. Its a gift really.

Lastly, and most importantly, a lot of our personality is tied up in our egg preference. I'm not saying there arent folks out there who like EVERY style of eggs, since I am one of them, but everyone has a fall-back egg style that they order more often than not.

Ok, so maybe not personality, but I'm still curious who prefers what. I had my first soft boiled egg the other day in 25 years and I am newly hooked! I have flirted with over easy and then sunny-side up, but I gotta say, something about spooning egg onto buttered toast makes me feel cultured...

I'm going to just put myself out there and guess that Homer is most likely a hard boiled man...

Man, I used to have poached eggs with a touch of salt and pepper when I was a kid. I'd eat them with toast as well. Good stuff!!!
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)

The trick is to buy a few cases of CCE the day after Easter. That will keep you in them till they come out in January the next year. I have 2 cases sitting in my freezer right now.

Not a fan of eggs. I think it is because I never have had good ones.

LOL! As I was reading your post, Creamy, I thought, "I bet he is just WAITING to see what kind of egg man I am!"

For the record, I "normally" eat my eggs over easy, but honestly, I am not choosy. I like them just about any way they can be made. I will have to say that hard boiled is near the bottom of my list. I can't recall ever having soft boiled, though. Might have to give it a try. Probably won't care for it, though. I don't usually go for cultured things. Yoghurt is ok with enough of the right kind of fruit.

I don't hate eggs, but I never want them.

No matter what, I have to have bacon or sausage to eat with it to give a little flavor and texture.

Spicy devilled eggs can be good, but again, I NEVER crave them or choose them if there is much else to choose from.

I love scrambled, on the runny side, with hot sauce or something else fact, the more stuff I can mix together (potatoes, sausage, veggies, cheese, dash of hot-sauce) the better.

I also like over medium and will often eat a dozen deviled eggs on Thanksgiving (or whenever they're around). Hard boiled are OK but I like to keep the yolk a bit soft so there is some juiciness.

Scrambled or over hard. No runny-ness for me please. Oh and how about a bit of cheese on it there, oh ya and drop that on a nice toasted muffin with some sausage or bacon that would be great thanks. You're the best.
