All across Tacoma, people are looking for eggs featuring the face of actor Danny DeVito.
“He looks like an egg, which isn’t saying anything mean about him,” said organizer Emily Longest. “He is so funny and he can really act like crazy good!”
Longest says the idea behind the DeVito egg hunt goes back to an episode of the cult TV series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. DeVito’s character tries to make a helpful gesture in a chaotic scene, saying “May I offer you an egg in these trying times?"
“Given that this past year has been not so great, I thought I would offer Tacoma an egg in these trying times,” laughed Longest.
Longest, who works at Wendy’s, spent her own money to buy a thousand temporary tattoos which have been rubbed on hard boiled eggs and hidden all over the Tacoma area by her dozens of her newest friends, all of whom heard about the hunt through Facebook.
Better start looking for those eggs now before the raccoons and seagulls find them first!
