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.

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.
