Here's a scan of a carton of eggs I recently bought at the story.

There's nothing really strange about the packaging--unlike the C. Everett Koop egg carton I found several years ago--but there's something the company's mascot, Heidi Hen, that I find a little curious.
Do we really need "the Hen" to follow her name? Can't we see she's a hen? And since this is a carton of eggs, wouldn't we just assume this? And why give her long eye lashes so as to heighten her femininity? Don't we assume that a female chicken would be laying the eggs?

There are stranger things than female chickens laying eggs these days, I have found that nothing ceases to surprise me, so maybe elaboration is best.
