The Poached Egg Schism

The Poached Egg Schism has a very ancient history. The historian won't find it written down anywhere, it won't be on runes or on tablets, and if it is there are some academic nitpickers who will argue that the words Poached Egg have over the course of oral transmission been mistranslated.

Interesting however that while the written record of our time upon the planet is replete with Schisms, it's a pretty sort of word, sounds well thought out, just the one vowel, yet by attaching the word Poached Egg to a schism the veracity of a traumatic historical event becomes suspect in the minds of the more pussy-footing student.
