Santa Barbara, Calif. -- George Mikos recently found a yolkless egg.
Mikos, a restaurant owner, received an order for "two over easy."
He broke one egg into a pan and it was perfect. But the next egg, on
being broken, yielded no yolk. When the two were in the pan only one
yolk was there for the two of them.
