Oh, you thick Egg!

A moment ago, I received an email from Ikea in Germany -- with the heading Ach Du dickes Ei! Literally translated, that means, "Oh, you thick Egg!"

Will have to ask my German neighbors what that means in real life. Oh, you numbskull? Or: oh, you egghead? Made me laugh, which I needed!

Idioms are fun.

Did you ever find out what this meant? I looked it up on Leo but it wasn't in there. You've got me curious!
