EoMEoTE #16
This month I have decided to participate in the End of Month Egg on Toast Extravaganza organized by Cook Sister! (thanks for organizing!!)and this month’s theme is “The Da Clucki Code – a parody in some shape or form of the Da Vinci Code”. I have read the book and I did not like it. I read it because I was having so many heated discussions about it without having read a line so I thought that maybe it was time to be able to back up my arguments and boy did I find a lot to use! I stopped counting the factual mistakes on page 76 and finished it just because I had to. In case. Anyway, I have removed it from my mind and I don’t really remember much anymore but I do remember that they find this guy killed in the Louvre and that he lies spread out inside a circle, just like Leonardo Da Vinci’s universal man (it’s just that Dan Brown ‘forgets’ that there should be a square too, outside the circle because it obviously doesn’t fit in with his own interpretation…) So here he is, on a plate and made by two of the ingredients of my EoMEoTE contribution: egg and small gherkins!
