Superman Screws With Jimmy Some More
As for the eggs, Jimmy must be trying to recuperate from the horse incident.
Now that I think about it, Clark Kent's job is the real problem. Sure, being a reporter gives him an advantage to helping people, because the news is always flying right into his lap, but on the other hand, he works with the most inquisitive people in the world, people who would give their lives to knowing who he really was.
It's also ambiguous as to whether or not they'd be willing to sell him out. Here, Jimmy waits until they're out of earshot, but in other comics, he'd totally do it in front of everyone. Ditto on Lois.
Also, I love Jimmy's line about "lame excuses" that he's clearly used to getting. Hee hee, how's Supes gonna get out of this one?
So Superman spins Jimmy around and lets his vomit rain down on poor people below just to save his identity. And because a super-being needs to get his kicks, too.
Then Jimmy laughs in Clark's face at the idea of him being strong. Perhaps Jimmy is the real dick. That's an M Night Shyamalan twist for ya.
