This is What’s Trending Today…

More than 100 athletes from Norway will compete in the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, which open Friday, February 9.

They and the other world-class competitors, of course, need plenty of good food to help them perform to the best of their abilities.

Norwegian cooks in South Korea must keep their nation’s hungry athletes well fed. They have been placing orders for things like eggs, vegetables and meat at local supermarkets. They must use Google Translate to make sure Koreans understand their requests.

Ahead of the Games, the Norwegian cooks placed an order for 1,500 eggs. When the order arrived in a large vehicle, they received 1,500 eggs….plus another 13,500...for a total of 15,000 eggs.

“There was literally no end to the delivery,” Norwegian cook Stale Johansen told Norway’s Aftenposten.

The story of Team Norway’s “scrambled” egg order was trending on social media this week.

Some blamed the problem on Google Translate. But there may have simply been a typing mistake in the original order. The Korean language uses a different counting system, so Norwegians probably would not have noticed their error once it was translated.

Luckily, the Norwegian athletes will not have to eat huge amounts of eggs for every meal during the Olympics. The cooks were able to return the extra eggs to the supermarket.

And that’s What’s Trending Today.
