I've never understood that thing about having to break some eggs if you're going to make an omelette.
Because, of course. That is what the recipe requires, in order for you not to have bleeding gums. That cliched aphorism does not hold any real meaning in the usual contexts that people use it in. "Well, you see, if you want to do that thing, you're going to have to follow the generally accepted set of tasks in order to complete it." That is also known as 'doing stuff'.
The saying could also imply that there is collateral damage involved in performing certain unsavoury tasks, but in actual fact if you are unable to crack an egg and get it into the pan or other omelette preparation receptacle...well frankly you shouldn't be in any position of responsibility, oval or otherwise.
The only reason this is all in my head is because I am currently making some poached eggs to eat. I love poached eggs. If I wasn't so lazy I would eat them every day. But everyone knows that in order to make poached eggs you need to use some eggs. Man, I still don't get it.
