Playing with your food is a real no-no when you're a kid. But once you're old enough to head off to college, it suddenly becomes OK -- at least if Animal House taught us anything.

Available from the aptly-named Monkey Business for just $US12 each, the plastic moulds, designed by designed by Avichai Tadmor, are pretty easy to use. You just hard boil an egg, place it into the mould and seal it up before it cools, and then submerge the whole thing in cold water. In a manner of minutes you'll have the perfect dinner sporting accessory. In fact, a tennis racket's webbing could actually be pretty useful for slicing eggs. [Monkey Business]
