Pic: GettyThe chefs for the Norwegian Olympic team were left with egg on their faces after a grocery order got lost in translation. The Korean language uses a different counting system, so Norwegians probably would not have noticed their error once it was translated.

Half a truckload of eggs was delivered to the team compound after they made the accidental order, Business Insider reported.

By wrongly translating the number of eggs they ended up with a surplus of 13,500 eggs.

But Google might have translated that request into 15,000, the team said.

The ozone's recovery may have been overstated, report warns
Overall, the effects balance out but this means the ozone layer over the area studied is remaining in its depleted state. Until now, experts have expected that the global ozone layer would completely recover by the middle of the century.

Now the Norwegians just have the big decisions to make about how to take their eggs: poached, fried, scambled, on toast, as an omelette, frittata, baked or maybe even an egg salad. That would have meant that each one of Norway's 109 athletes would need to eat almost 12 dozen eggs apiece over the next two weeks to finish the stash. "There was literally no end to the delivery", said Johansen.

After taking receipt of 15,000 eggs instead of the 1,500 they wanted at this month's Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, Norwegian chef de mission Tore Ovrebo struggled to suggest what they will do with the delivery.

Despite all the egg-citement, Johansen told Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten that they were able to return the extra 13,500 protein-packed treats.
