Norway's Olympic Team Has Translation Error, Orders 15,000 Eggs

Norway's Olympic team ordered 15,000 eggs when they meant to order 1,500.

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

So the chefs put in an order for them with a local supermarket, using Google Translate.

But they clearly made an error somewhere.

"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, told CNN.

Fortunately for the chefs, the supermarket took back 13,500 eggs.
