PYEONGCHANG, South Korea - The Norwegian Olympic team tried to order 1,500 eggs and ended up with 15,000, according to a Twitter post.

The 2018 Winter Games in South Korea are underway and there will be no shortage of protein for the Norwegian camp.

In Korean, just one syllable differentiates 1,500 and 15,000, according to the Olympic Channel.

Thankfully, the team was able to return 13,500 eggs, according to Norway’s Aftenposen.

Chef Stale Johansen also told the Aftenposen he would like to surprise the athletes with tacos.

We might all be different but it seems we all love tacos.
