Norway Olympic Team Accidentally Orders 15,000 Eggs Due To Translation Error


Hopefully the athletes on Norway’s Olympic team are very hungry during their stay in PyeongChang, South Korea.

On Friday, a hilarious report surfaced after the Norwegian team chefs accidentally ordered 15,000 eggs due to a translation error.

The team meant to order 1,500 for the country’s 109 athletes, but instead an entire truckload was delivered. They eventually returned 13,500 of the eggs.

Norwegian newspaper Trønder-Avisa shared a photo of a small portion of the delivery.

“When the truck showed up, they started to carry in the eggs. After a while, they [the chefs] thought it lasted so long, it never stopped,” Halvor Lea, spokesman for the Norwegian Olympic Committee, said,via

“They said themselves that it was a Google translate slip. I don’t know.”
