OK. Makes sense we'd want glue, since we're trying to get
the flour to stick to the otherwise slippery onion rings.

A) The egg is a gluey binder.

PS: Sorry for the duplicate posts; I wrote to the aioe server
admin Paolo, to see if he can debug why that happens. I'll use
a different server that doesn't hiccup so much.
