This was no eggxaggeration.
When I first read that a security guard in China was caught stealing and hoarding 1,000 eggs from the food factory where he worked, I assumed the guy must be crazy. Then I thought, wait a minute, why am I judging a man who I’ve never even met without knowing all of the details?
Maybe the dude is trying to set a world record for highest cholesterol level… or perhaps he’s planning to move next to Justin Bieber and wants to be prepared just in case.
According to The Mirror, the man, known only as “Gu,” had labeled each egg with a “use by” date. (See, the guy was only planning to eat 1,000 fresh eggs. Now do you think he’s crazy? Never mind — don’t answer that.)
The official motive, according to Gu himself, is that he “really liked eggs.” Yes, that’s a real quote, although he did add that his klepto tendencies don’t stop there.
“I lost count how many times I have stolen. Probably hundreds of times. I have stolen everything in my house.”

Gu may be the most organized food thief in the world.
