It's almost time to crack open the good times as Easter draws near. Aside from the traditional chocolate, candied or colorfully decorated Easter eggs, there are so many other things that can be done with this fragile oval-shaped wonder--it made an awesome breakfast for me this morning!

Implications - The appeal of the egg-shaped design comes not only from its recognizable shape, but that particular shape's practical uses. The oval shape is actually one of the strongest while using a minimal amount of material, making it an ideal choice for architecture.

Other than being a delicious edible treat, eggs have inspired designs for furniture, gadgets and fashion. Take a look, whether you enjoy them scrambled or clustered!
