Survey: Do You Prefer the Egg White or the Egg Yolk Portion?

I have recently read several posts about egg white. This got me thinking of a simple question.

When you eat your eggs (fried eggs, poached eggs, soft boiled eggs...etc), do you enjoy the egg white portion more or the egg yolk portion more?

1) Egg White
2) About the same (no clear preference)
3) Egg Yolk

Thanks for your inputs.

      Holy crap. You are fast (in responding)

      1. I prefer the whites generally unless the yolk is runny and oozy and there is buttered toast close by. Num num

          Basically this. Hard yolk or runny white makes me gag. I prefer them eaten together anyway.

          1. Please, Dear Fuser, forgive me, I still love you, but, I wanna try:

            Oh, Egg, so rewarding
            Your soft, virgin white
            Protein rich, flavorless
            Do your job , protect
            That glorious, yellow soul
            That fatty, wonderful core
            That magnificent, magical love
            Put your strong back against
            Her soft, supple pillow
            Firm yourself proudly, and let her
            Offer bulbous bliss
            Offer tender milkiness
            Offer her pleasure to each of us
            Let us revel in the ooze of the Sun
            The affirmation of the Galaxy
            The infinity of the Universe

            Um, I guess I should note, to assuage any confusion, I'm a yolk guy.

                    I love the yolk for it's deliciousness and the white for it's protein punch. Alas, I love them together but I usually eat one whole egg w/ added whites for extra protein.

                  I probably should have had a separate category just for your love.

                    Aww, CK, if life ever was without love, even this crusty, dirty, ol' 'hound couldn't eat. Sad as that might be to consider, the fundamental notion that you posited in the OP simply proves that even when a drunken, hungry, grayin' mutt like me passes on to the endless bowl of kibbles and pigs ears in the sky, there will still be wonder and magic growin' from the piles I left in the yard.

                    So sad. Somehow I missed FoodFuser's passing news. Love the guy. (No wonder I have not seen him for a long time).
