Today, presenters on BBC Breakfast have been chucking eggs at each other. Why? To celebrate the Six Nations. Even more confused? Yeah, us too.
Calling it the #ChuckyEggChallenge, they want viewers to throw eggs to one another with a rugby-style pass. You have to see how many you can do within 20 seconds, without the egg breaking. Riiiiight....
Clearly a slow day in the office.
However, this did remind us of other bloody weird things that have happened on the news before, starting with...

When a newsreader tried to pretend that a ream of paper was an iPad
Always grab your office supplies before going on-air. BBC news reader appears to be holding a ream of paper. pic.twitter.com/dy50GoEXMm— Sarah Sears (@iamsas) September 18, 2013
When they really needed to scrub up on their knowledge of political figures
I think the person who writes the captions for BBC News has completely lost the plot pic.twitter.com/yvRVhzVLkN— Adam Hess (@adamhess1) June 5, 2013
