Yolk (August)

The yolk is on you, as children love to say. Or, in this case, on the Bureau of Statistics. The proportion of egg on face of the Bureau is 33% yolk and 67% egg white, though these figures need adjusting if we factor in eggshell:  say 5%? Yolk is an indeterminate colour ranging from orange to lemon, making it nature’s way of charting the spectrum of a primary. A breakdown of those figures into averages is not currently available. August 9 was Census Night, proof technology is not all it’s cracked up to be and yolks fly thick and fast.
