Australia: Eggs Added to Controlled Substances List

Police in a Sydney suburb have asked shopkeepers not to sell eggs to just any kid coming in to the store; extra vigilance is needed to crack down on an epidemic of eggings of persons and property by delinquents.  A teen may claim to be planning to whip up a souffle or some French toast perhaps, when in fact a car or grandmother is about to be covered in a sticky, gelatinous mess.  I predict that this effort is pointless: even a complete suppression of the egg traffic will just force kids to turn to tomatoes, or paint-filled balloons, or, perhaps, pomegrantes.   Eggs don't play pranks, kids play pranks.  [Jack Chin]

If you outlaw eggs, only outlaws will have eggs?
