The Universe Might Be Unspooling

You have until October 10th at 1:30 pm to get your affairs in order, because I'm pretty sure Steve Harwell from inexplicably famous surf-rock-something-or-other act Smash Mouth eating 24 eggs as part of an online bet at Guy Fieri's restaurant was one of the last signs of the apocalypse. Check the first Left Behind book, I think it happens somewhere around page 200.


After being prompted by a bizarre online fan challenge, lead singer of the multi-platinum GRAMMY-nominated group Smash Mouth, Steve Harwell, has set a date to eat 24 eggs as promised. Pairing up with celebrity chef Guy Fieri who has offered to cook the eggs, the "Egg Challenge" will take place on October 10, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. at Fieri's restaurant, Johnny Garlic's, in Dublin, Calif.

The call for Smash Mouth to eat two dozen eggs came about when a fan prompted the challenge on a blog website, Something Awful. The spontaneous request was immediately backed by a multitude of fans via the website, Twitter and Facebook continuously urging Harwell to eat the eggs. Soon, it became one of the hottest trending topics on Twitter and Yahoo, and like an encore chant at a live concert, Harwell had no choice but to submit to their pleas.
