The World shall taste my eggs!

I didn't get this memory (it's found inside a vault at the base of the literal 'Thorney Towers' in the Brain Tumbler experiment). I understand that the level is a severe screwup of the Coach's mental mindscape, but is the memory, as well? I'm not sure if the memory is a mix of memories or if it's entirely the coaches. When I first saw it I thought it was Lobotos, actually.

Anybody know what it was?

I didn't get it ethier. I thought it was a glitch and they put it in the wrong mind.

Chicken: Coach's Mind
Teacup Thing The Brain Tank

Basically it's coach's plans to take over the world with the brain tank. I haven't seen this in a while but I know it's that. Basically it's the entire plot in one ****ed up vault. it's meant to confuse you.

Close, here's how it goes:

Egg represents a child, then the Brain is taken out (squint and tilt your head and the chick looks like a brain) and brought to the fish (lungfish) who carries it to a carnival (Loboto's lab) and it gets loaded into a teacup. (tank)

But why the completely crazy metaphor?

Is it because it's mixed up with Raz's circus mind?

Si,

And because they wanted us to come up with crazy theories on what the hell it could mean.

Seriously IM Tim Schafer and he'll tell you.

But the child doesn't have his/her brain removed into they get to the asylum. So what would the egg represent then?

Oleander doesn't see the campers as children, only hosts for harvesting brains.

I think I've heard the coach over the intercom saying things concerning eggs, like "Be careful with those eggs.." and stuff like that. Does that have anything to do with it?

Oleander's Clairvoyance.

And yes, that egg thing is his plan over the P.A, since Oleander falls asleep at the psychic P.A. device he accidentally broadcasts his plan all over camp. (rather sloppy in my opinion for a "professional".)

Personally I just think he's out of his mind.


All he knew was that you couldn't hope to try for the big stuff, like world peace and happiness, but you might just about be able to achieve some tiny deed that'd make the world, in a small way, a better place.

The coolest thing about that place though are the figments you find around the Thorney Towers. Theres one from each resident in the asylum. There was a Bull, a Napoleon hat and a basket full of milk bottles. Can't seem to find Gloria's one though...

Cool, I'm totally looking for that next time.
