MurphyMurphy: Thou shalt not blasphemeFor the peanut butter / choc eggs are truly the lord's chosen
Bastard Toadflax: I thought Obama won the War on Easter.
hardinparamedic: Would someone who's Christian be kind enough to explain to me what rabbits laying eggs have to do with the Christian Faith, and the Resurrection of Christ?Is this a subtle self-jab?
Man On A Mission: Everyone knows the real way to celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior is not with chocolate covered marshmallow eggs but with Peeps. Duh![4.bp.blogspot.com image 500x287]
DubyaHater: Cadberry creme eggs are still pure poison however. I'm getting a headache just thinking about biting into one of those fondant bombs.
Uncle Tractor: Can we have a war on Easter too?
SpdrJay: Now would be the time for someone to post a link to a site that tells us how Easter was originally a pagan rite dedicated to sex with rabbits, eating live baby chicks, and a huge orgy where people all covered themselves in chocolate and had sex in a big wicker basket....
NeverDrunk23: Uncle Tractor: Can we have a war on Easter too?Funny how Easter is the holier of celebrations over Christmas and yet doesnt get even 1% of the outraged 'We are oppressed' cries like Christmas gets.Actually....why is there more religious outrage during Christmas and not easter?
Real Women Drink Akvavit: hardinparamedic: Would someone who's Christian be kind enough to explain to me what rabbits laying eggs have to do with the Christian Faith, and the Resurrection of Christ?Is this a subtle self-jab?Nah. A lot of the way modern religions of all kinds - but especially Christianity - are practiced are actually just combinations of the older faith of a region or regions with a touch of "we did it first!!!" whargarble thrown in by those ignorant enough to not realize the Pagan and Heathen origins of many of the aspects of the Christian practices.You gotta admit, short of forced Christianization, which proved somewhat effective in a few areas, tearing down the old temples and building a new one in the same place and celebrating the same way the Heathens and Pagans did while changing a few of the names around and the whole why of the celebration is a great way to get new adherents to that faith. They're just not very good new adherents as they're still performing the old rites and are basically just, as a friend of mine loves to say, "highly Paganized Jews". Ouch./NTTAWWT
gweilo8888: Cadbury's Cream Eggs for the win. The inside may be a sugary, sticky hell, but the outside is real chocolate, unlike the shiat sold in WalMart's candy corn syrup aisle. So there's that going for them.
robohobo: Loves me some chocolate covered mallows, also choco/peanut butter eggs, but Cadbury cream eggs are Satan's testicles.
Nogale: Keep your marshmallows. I'll take Cadbury cream eggs.
Anastacya: Oh wow, I forgot about the chocolate-covered marshmallow eggs. Those are so tasty.Cadbury eggs, however, are sublime. I have thus far managed to escape their lustful gazes while in the store, but I do not know how much longer I can hold out.
