The Omelette Man

There’s something rather allegorical about people who do just one small thing all their lives, but do it better than anyone else.

So bloody true. Whether it’s the Omelette Man, or the Joker, they both suffer from the same quality of being persistent. I’m humbled, when I come to think of it — they have a purpose.

You see, one fateful review in the Lonely Planet guidebook, mistakenly described him as an omelette shop, even though he had originally been making many foods. This review changed everything, and now he cracks open about 1000 eggs a day.
