It may sound like a paradox, but smiling little chickens can be the perfect company to enjoy a perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg. Yes: in the real world, an egg means no smiling little chicken, and a smiling little chicken means no egg, but the egg cups' world is not exactly like the real one. Little chickens and soft-boiled eggs can be at same time on your table, in total harmony. Be careful, nevertheless: even in the egg cups' world not all little chickens smile, and some of them may even look quite scary.
