That sounds so American.. LOL. When I was in the US we were served scrambled eggs every morning. Oh God the smell.. it made me nauseous. I don't really like eggs in general though, sometimes I feel like I want to have a baked or cooked egg, but that's not often..

I use to live in a city in which almost everybody was Buddhist.
What amazed me was the motorcycles which would deliver a huge number of eggs (I would say at least 100 dozen eggs) on the back of their motorcycles. My Mother-in-law is a vegetarian and a follower of Kwan Yin. As a 'vegetarian' she is allowed to eat chicken and fish. Figure it out, I never could.
My wife and daughter are Buddhist. When I buy eggs for them, I generally
buy 4-6 dozen. My wife goes thru them so fast that she doesn't ever put them in the refrigerator.

Some cultures and some people think fish and shrimps are vegetarian, like some Asian countries. It's strange, considering East Asian countries are influenced by Buddhism you'd think they at least have some notion of what vegetarianism is about. Vegetarianism simply means not eating animals.

And not just there, across the world you have those that separate fish from other animals. I don't know how even the chickens ended up on a vegetarian menu...

What may be happening here is there's a strange notion of what 'animals' are. If you check some commentaries on scripture it's not uncommon to see guru's and people mentioning ''the beasts of the world, the insects, the animals, tiger, and the birds'' - or similar sentences. But these are all animals, so it's quite illogical to talk in such a way..

but then, if you look closely at Buddhism, it was Asoka who introduced vegetarianism.
