I thought it was the power of Jesus that made chocolate bunnies?

Oh, made BY children.  Well, I'm not as excited as I was at first.

Coincidentally, the chocolate chip cookies I plan to eat on Easter morning will also be crafted by child labor (my child's).

(The school psychologist) gives me a chocolate Easter bunny. And this shows how tricky those guys are. I eat the chocolate and I think, wait a second... this isn't around Easter.

"Was this a test?"

He said, "Yes."

"And what does it mean?"

He said, "Well, had you eaten the ears first you would have been normal; had you eaten the feet first you would have had an inferiority complex; had you eaten the tail first you would have had latent homosexual tendencies; and had you eaten the breasts first you would have had a latent oedipal complex."

I said, "Well, go on. What does it mean when you bite out the eyes and scream, 'Stop staring at me!'?'"

He says, "It shows you've a tendency towards self-destruction."

I said, "What do you recommend?"

He says, "Go for it!"

It's been a tradition since the early 1800s for my Virginia relatives to eat Easter treats made by slaves.

Those kids are heathens, living in heathen countries.  They are all going to hell anyway.....I mean those places are so backward, they don't even have NASCAR.

During an Easter Egg egg hunt I once found a chocolate bunny but it was a hollow victory.

Shostie: I only buy organic, fair trade chocolate bunnies hand-crafted by deposed former dictators of banana republics.

Oh, so you don't mind that in order to give land to the deposed former dictators, they have to displace local artisans who are then forced to sell their children into slave labor making chocolate bunnies with lead for eyes?

Last year, Ramon highlighted 10 Fairtrade, Organic, and Vegan Sources For Easter Chocolate. That is a good place to start for avoiding the soul-crushing despair you'll feel if you find out mid bunny that your chocolate was produced with the help of slave children.

Sure, buy vegan chocolate to avoid soul-crushing despair. Yeah, the kids'll buy that.

And Jesus said, "Leave the children alone, and don't try to keep them from coming to Me, because the kingdom of heaven is made up of people like this, and they build the chocolate bunnies because their fingers are small and nimble."
