If you brought the oil up to boiling from cold with the eggs already in the 
oil, it might not.  Puncturing the shell for pressure relief might also 
work, but I'd be worried that the coagulating protein might seal the hole. 
Maybe we could turn this into an urban legend and get Mythbusters to 
investigate for us.
