Standing Ovation


A standing ovation is the art of balancing an egg upright on a flat surface. In ancient Rome, it was a common practice to balance thousands of eggs outside a theatre during a performance, which the audience would trample upon their exit. This practice lends it's name to a round of applause, which now mimics the sound of thousands of eggs being simultaneously crushed.
