成语 to egg someone on 其实跟鸡蛋一点关系都没有,它的意思是怂恿、鼓动某人去做他们并不特别想做的事情,而结果很可能令当事人当众出丑或犯错误。

例句

“Why on earth did you try that jump on your bike?”
         “These boys were egging me on and I didn’t want to seem to be a coward”

请注意

另一个含有 egg 的表达是 with egg on someone’s face。可想而知,脸上挂了鸡蛋该有多么不舒服,所以我们可以用这个短语形容某人处于难堪、尴尬的情形中。
