Eggshells in disposal question.

Am I dreaming, or did I read somewhere long ago, that it was bad to put eggshells down the disposal? We have a 3/4 HP beast that seemingly would grind up whole trees, but I can't seem to get the eggshell admonishment out of my head. Anyone else ever heard this one? Maybe yet another urban legend? Thanks.
