The miracle of modern China: fantastic fake eggs!

The production in China of fake phones, cars, designer accessories, sneakers and more is well known. But did you know they make fake eggs? The eggs have convincing shells, yolks and whites, and even hard-boil more or less like the real thing (or maybe they come that way). Of course, fake Chinese eggs are often toxic and can turn you into an "idiot," according to the post on the other side of this link. But, still, you've got to marvel at both the manufacturing prowess and sheer audacity of the counterfeiters. It's also amazing to me that a human being can make an egg cheaper than a chicken can. Check out this first-hand experience with fake Chinese eggs, along with video evidence.

Fake? How is it fake? Is this some kind of elaborate April Fools build up? A viral add for Cadbury's Cream Egg? Shenanigans!

April fool's coming on March 25 this year? Must be second or third almost-convincing-hoax I'm exposed to in the last few days.
