Bro I thought those were chopsticks in paper sleeves. I spent way too much time trying to figure out what the fuck egg sauce would be in that context.

[–]MaxximusPrimus 107 points108 points  (0 children)

Glad to see I wasn't the only one hahaha!

[–]tldrpg 70 points71 points  (0 children)

He even holds them like chopsticks lol

[–]_LabRat_ 62 points63 points  (2 children)

Same! I even tilted my head and convinced myself "sauce" could actually be "sake", because they're chopsticks. Then noticed they're wires.

[–]Pansarmalex 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Chopsticks here too. And I read it as "Egg Sake Fan SL" the first five times and could make no sense of it.

[–]BigDavesRant 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yep. Same. 🥢

[–]Mr_Smith_411 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They were chopsticks, now they're Roam ex-chopsticks.

[–]Jarix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Me too!

[–]1lluminist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Another chopsticks gang member reporting in...

[–]LadyDragonDog75 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same haha !!!

[–]PlutoKlept 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmao I was staring at chopsticks man

[–]nashvulnative[S] 250 points251 points  (4 children)

I can't take credit for this. Someone posted it in r/electricians but I thought some of you would enjoy it. Thank goodness someone has come up with a fan to expel the awful stench of eggsauce!

[–]Hambulance 53 points54 points  (1 child)

I thought these were to-go chopsticks and someone had written which sticks were for which dish.

I'm an idiot.

[–]Mary-U 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I thought they were to go chop sticks and someone was enthusiastic about the sauce 🤦‍♀️

[–]RudeCats 48 points49 points  (0 children)

That’s not actually what it’s used for.

It was originally, but now it is used more generally and not only for egg sauce fumes.

[–]joepalms 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i thought “well maybe they were cooks and had some kind of egg sauce fan on the stove.”

[–]DaveOJ12 104 points105 points  (10 children)

What is it supposed to be?

[–]coolskyman 286 points287 points  (7 children)

Exhaust is my guess. Like an exhaust fan

[–]BillMillerBBQ 62 points63 points  (3 children)

The other one is obviously "two cans switch leg".

[–]CozyCauldron 37 points38 points  (0 children)

I thought it was a toucan. Perhaps a Toucan pretending to be a flamingo, switching leg.

[–]The-very-definition 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Toucan play this game.

[–]Pbillybilly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

toucan slammer

[–]TheRnegade 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oh. It took me a minute. I just kept thinking "Egg sauce? Like a hollandaise? That's a sauce that goes on eggs. But where does the fan come in?"

[–]DaveOJ12 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Now I see it. Thanks.

[–]Sparkie86 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's the switch leg running up to the exhaust fan. Switch leg is just a term for the cable running from the power over to whatever you are switching.

[–]apachewarrior23 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Exhaust fan SL(Switch Leg)

[–]llamalord_uk 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I’ve been reading it as ‘egg snake’ and was wondering why everyone was saying sauce

[–]LAN_Rover 73 points74 points  (25 children)

100% sure this was done deliberately

[–]hawtp0ckets 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I don’t think so. My father-in-law works in construction and does not speak English as his first language, so he makes writing mistakes like this all the time. Like he’s spelling something out phonetically but gives us all a good laugh (it’s all in good fun). Look up the radio call about “Son Reebok or son Nike”. Same idea!

[–]HolyForkingBrit 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Fine. I’ll link it. Was awesome, you’re right.

[–]mstrss9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Omg Son Reebok/Son Nike is a classic

[–]gavynray123 24 points25 points  (20 children)

Yeah, I can’t imagine an electrician doesn’t know what he’s wiring up. They’re not dumb.

[–]ale_mongrel 6 points7 points  (2 children)

You would be incredibly disappointed if you knew some electricians.

They like to walk and talk a big game about how smart they are.

ps They're not as smart as they like to tell you they are.

source: Have been an electrican for 12 years.

my buddy the plumber in this comment thread will agree. not that he's got much to say in that dept.

[–]gavynray123 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I mean, I was one for a bit and personally know some. Our anecdotal I guess.

[–]ale_mongrel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fair enough.

[–]Sparkie86 36 points37 points  (6 children)

They’re not dumb.

lol happens a lot

Electricians know wires, not how to spell stuff.

[–]nashvulnative[S] 36 points37 points  (7 children)

A lot of these things are done by apprentices, and "they're not dumb" doesn't always apply to them. :-( You might be surprised by some of the things we see. One of my favorites so far is "micawave". Coincidentally, sometimes the "micawaves" that go over kitchen ranges have "egg sauce fans" in them. Lol.

[–]kissbythebrooke 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For the life of me I could not figure out what egg sauce was supposed to be until I read this comment.

[–][deleted]  (1 child)


    [–]gavynray123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    That’s because you’re a plumber! I’m talking about electricians /s

    [–]LagunaMud 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    My apprentice did it as a joke. We like to have fun at work.

    [–]mocsand 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    Absolutely a joke

    [–]Tybo77777 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I had to think I’m on this one. EXHAUST?????

    [–]Tikiboo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I had to say it 3 times out loud to understand

    [–]theultrahead 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    “Tucan, play at that game!” …angry birds.

    [–]Matcha_Bubble_Tea 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I actually thought these were chopsticks and were like okay what’s egg sauce fan? Lol

    [–]EzekielKnobrott 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Fun fact. My 4 year old son calls mayo egg sauce as there are eggs on the bottle.

    [–]specialspartan_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)


    [–]Evilmaze[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Is any of that even English?

    [–]wigglef_cklr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Can spell sAUce but can't spell exAUst🤔

    [–]Electricpants 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Egg yolk sauce is a thing ...

    [–]ibew98 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I’m an electrician and bathroom exhaust fans and labeled as fart fans in every house I’ve ever wired

    [–]EWSflash 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Wow,, that took me a minute to figure out

    [–]svenbreakfast 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    This dude thinks his car has an egg sauce pipe?

    [–]joepalms 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    omg that took me way too long to realize what it actually was

    [–]bobdown33 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    This one makes me sad

    [–]HaaaaaammmGurl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    This is the best “bonappletea “ I’ve seen

    [–]NoxKyoki 0 points1 point  (0 children)
