Dippy eggs, the Wikipedia version

Commenter Bill Schmeer pointed out that, in the Wikipedia entry on fried eggs, we get some recognition for the “dippy eggs” concept, which of course was the best D of York County!
Good Yorkers know these are basically over-easy eggs. In the Wikipedia entry, Bill points out, it says that “Over easy fried eggs are also commonly referred to as dippy eggs or dip eggs by Marylanders and by Pennsylvania Dutch persons living in southern Pennsylvania, mainly due to the practice of dipping toast into the yolk while eating.”
Hmm, that sounds like something I’ve said before.
Good for the citizen editors at Wikipedia, recognizing a local favorite like that!
