TA'AROA

Tahitian Creator God

Also known as TA'AROA, TA-OROA

Creator God who rustled up a delicious Universe

The father of Oro, he made the entire universe using a clever piece of creative cookery.

You will need two eggs, with yourself inside the second egg. On hatching you will need to boil your flesh into soil, stew your bones into mountains, roll your intestines into eels, steam your internal organs into clouds and squeeze your blood into birds.

Now for the feathers (yes you will have feathers). These are to be used for flower arrangements. Then, this being an economical recipe, you use leftover bits of shell for stars and things.

If anything goes wrong you will still have an egg you made earlier and can do a simple omelet. This is a Ta’aroa specialty and has never appeared in any cookery book. Thank Godchecker.
