“Why couldn’t the egg quit smoking?"/"Because he’d Benedicted to it.”

"Benedicted” sounds like “been addicted,” and there have been several “Eggs Benedict” puns. “When I lay an egg around here, it’s just ignored! That’s O.K… I’ve benedicted for three years now” was posted on the newsgroup alt.humor.puns on October 13, 1999. “Lol RT @roybotROCK: Addicted to eggs benedict. Eggs benedicted” was posted on Twitter by Suzanne Michelle on March 29, 2010.

“Tried the host’s eggs benedict last week. Benedicted ever since HAHA (it’s a yoke)” was posted on Twitter by Michaela Arseneau on October 20, 2012. “#breakfastsongs Might as well face you’re Egg Benedicted to love”—a pun on the 1986 Robert Palmer song “Addicted to Love”—was posted on Twitter by ѕυѕαηηαн on May 12, 2013.

I’ve never Benedicted an Egg. I’ve never Bloodied a Mary. (Thank heavens...) I’m not sure if any of this is bad… except for the Mary thing. That’s good.

The muffin asked the egg if he had an alcohol addiction. The egg said, “Yeah man I’ve benedicted for years now.”
I’ll see myself out.
