Lost in translation Norway Winter Olympic team orders 15000 eggs by mistake

While attempting to order 1,500 eggs for the 109 athletes representing the country, the chef used Google Translate to help draft an order from a Korean purveyor.

Norway's communications manager Niels Roine said the team's chefs believed they had ordered 1,500 eggs from a Korean delivery service in preparation for the Pyeongchang Olympics, but instead were greeted with a huge shipment of 15,000 eggs.

Tours from the South to the resort were closed after a South Korean tourist was shot by a North Korean guard in 2008. Pence will head the USA government delegation visiting the Olympics' opening ceremony at Pyeongchang, South Korea.

The chefs blamed a Google translation typo for the order.

If they decide to do that, their registered 121-strong delegation of athletes and officials would get plenty of protein, eating 124 eggs each. "There was literally no end to the delivery", says Johansen, per USA Today, which notes the situation ended up being a waste of time, not food: The excess eggs were returned.

Killmonger goes head-to-head with T'Challa in a way that makes it hard to pigeonhole him as a typical "villain". It's called Necropolis, the final resting place of all Black Panthers .

Tore Ovrebo, head of the Norwegian team, blamed a typo for the error, and said he was anxious about what would happen to all the excess eggs.

Fortunately for Team Norway, they were able to return the unwanted 13,500 egg, but Johansen said the remaining eggs would be put to good use. "It's not a big issue". "And we hope there will be a lot of sugar bread made for medal winners". After all, you can't make an omelette without cracking eggs. That would have meant that each one of Norway's 109 athletes would need to eat almost 12 dozen eggs apiece over the next two weeks to finish the stash.
