One of the stranger concepts from Dylan Thomas' play Under Milk Wood. The character who requests this is a womaniser, and the request is made in the morning.

"Pint of stout with an egg in it."

My English teacher suggested that the egg is used here as a symbol of virility.
Pourtant, the same person asks for a "pint of stout... no egg" towards the end of the play. I recall he had reason not to feel particularly virile at that point in the plotline.
