Yesterday over at Magpie & Cake, we get a pointer to a photo of someone in an egg costume in a New York City Parade. This reminded me of the Stonecutter episode where Homer just discovers the secretive group and asks Lenny how he can become a member.
Homer: Stonecutters, eh? How do I join?
Lenny: There are only two ways to gain membership: be the son of a Stonecutter --
Lenny: -- or, save the life of a Stonecutter. [starts to eat a sandwich]
Homer: Hey! [grabs it, stomps on it] I saved your life! That egg sandwich could have killed you by cholesterol.
Lenny: Pfft, forget it, Homer. While it has been established that eggs contain cholesterol, it has not yet been proven conclusively that they actually raise the level of serum cholesterol in the human blood stream.
Homer: So one of those Egg Council creeps got to you too, huh?
Lenny: Aw, you've got it all wrong, Homer. It's not like that.
[a man in an egg costume creeps, then runs, away]
Homer: You'd better run, egg!
