The Sequel to "Waiting for Godot" (AKA en i fuer en i)

This is basically a take off on that the sound "I" can have so many meanings, including the German "ei" for egg.

[The setup is A off-stage, SL, and B off-stage, SR, and two eggs (one hard boiled, the other raw; A and B don't know which eggs are which) are SC.]

A walks out on SL, faces the audience, and announces "I".
B walks out on SR, faces the audience, and announces "I".
A turns to B, points to himself, and says "I".
B turns to A, waits, finally gives thumbs up, and declares "aye".
B points to self, and says "I".
A waits, finally gives thumbs up, and declares "aye".
B, still looking at A, points to self, says "I", and gestures with hand towards A.
A, immediately, gives thumbs up, and declares "aye".
B, excited, turns to audience, points to self, says "I", and gestures with hand towards audience.
Audience says "aye" and gives thumbs up.
B, pleased, turns to A, who still has thumbs up, gives thumbs up, and declares "aye".
A points to self, says "I", and gestures with hand towards B.
B, immediately, gives thumbs up, and declares "aye".
A, pleased, turns to audience, points to self, says "I", and gestures with hand towards audience.
Audience says "aye" and gives thumbs up.
A, smiling, turns to B, who still has thumbs up, gives thumbs up, and declares "aye".

After a 3 second wait, both shuffle forward towards the eggs, still with smiles and thumbs up. Both simultaneously pick up the egg with their right hand and examine it. Finally, looking at the egg, they declare "ei".
Both turn towards audience, display egg with right hand, and declare "ei". With their left hand they gesture to the audience as before.
Audience says "aye" and gives thumbs up.
Both give thumbs up to the audience with their left hand and declare "aye".
Both turn towards each other, hold up the egg with the right hand, and declare "ei".
Both gesture towards each other with their left hand.
Both give thumbs up with their left hand and declare "aye". Both smile. [They should be near each other].
All of a sudden the relevant snippet of Ozzy's "Crazy Train" plays. After it ends, A smashes the egg on the forehead of B, declaring "ei".
B becomes upset, plaintively asking "I?" [as in Nancy Kerrigan's "why me?"].
A nods, says "aye".
B, pissed, declares "ei", and smashes the egg on the forehead of A.
If the second egg is raw, A is upset and B is happy. If the second egg is hard, B is upset and A is happy.
