I'm guessing some kid did it with his/her mouth.

Egg yolks for ice cream, cremé brulee, mayonnaise, Bearnaise and Hollandaise sauces. Egg whites for angel food cake, lemon meringue pie and cholesterol free omelets (you'll need one f you make all that other stuff).

Tonight I tried this method of separating eggs. I tried it on 3 sizes of eggs and found that on a grade AA large egg it works perfectly. On an extra large egg, while the bottle will suck up the yolk, it may also break it. Even broken, the yolk stays in the bottle.

Finally I tried this on some medium eggs and it also worked well, in fact, I was able to suck up several yolks without emptying the bottle so I ended up with a bowl full of whites and a bottle full of yolks. I then shook the bottle to "beat" the eggs and poured the yolks in a thin stream into my pot of cooking soup (a la eggdrop soup). Cool experiment - btw - the egg completely wrecked my sunchoke soup ;)

Still fun....

I showed it to Mrs Hoot..we are both impressed with this technique!!
Ever' time I hear the term "separate two eggs"...I can't help but remember Curly from the Three Stooges in the kitchen shaving ice and then preparing a turkey for dinner....It's hilarious. A Classic!
Later on, Shemp recreated the bit in another short called "Listen, Judge". The video below is a mite long (and colorized, dag nab it) but it is funny!
