Hello, I'm a very interesting and intelligent man. And today this egg and I will be helping you to speak egg-cellent (excellent) English.
I bet you've never been taught by an egg before!

It's a bad egg.
In English, if we want to say that someone is bad or dishonest, we can call him a bad egg.
He's a bad egg.
Like my boss, he promised me a pay rise and then he threatened to fire me. He's a bad egg.
And he smells like a bad egg too…

He's a very sensible rabbit. As you can see, he hasn't put all his eggs in one basket.
It would be very silly to put all your eggs in one basket.
Because if you dropped it… you'd break them all.
So, in English we say 'don't put all your eggs in one basket'.
It means you should never rely on only one plan - in case it goes wrong.
Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Did you like that trick?
The problem is, if I get it wrong I can get egg on my face.
In English, if someone makes a mistake which makes him look stupid, we can say 'he got egg on his face'.

Fortunately, I never make mistakes.
