It is common for restaurants to buy eggs by the crate in multiples of 30 in South Korea, but changing one syllable would mean the difference between 1,500 and 15,000.

The chefs needed the eggs to feed Norwegian athletes at the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

The chefs blamed a translation error, but it looks as if a typo might also be at fault.

Anyone know how to say "we ordered too many eggs" in Norwegian?

"There was literally no end to the delivery".

Team Norway's chefs ended up with more than 10,000 extra eggs earlier this week thanks to a translating error.

Johansen recalled the moment the delivery van arrived and the team began to unload pallet after pallet of eggs.

Get on to Google Translate to render the order in Korean and send it to a local supermarket. But there may have simply been a typing mistake in the original order. "After a while, they [the chefs] thought it lasted so long, it never stopped", Halvor Lea, spokesman for the Norwegian Olympic Committee, told CNN. That would have meant that each one of Norway's 109 athletes would need to eat almost 12 dozen eggs apiece over the next two weeks to finish the stash.
