I'll need to see pix of said Moms before I can render an opinion.

If I can't come up with a bad pun of my own, is it okay if I poach one of theirs?

So one mom scrambled away.

Tell me this is some kind of yolk.
 
2013-04-02 10:58:34 AM
This cracks me up. They really scrambled for the eggs didn't they. Those hard boiled parents need to learn how to roll with it.

This is why I don't bother taking my kids to these kinds of things anymore. I don't want to be an overbearing helicopter parent and my kids don't have a chance against the overbearing helicopter parents of other kids. This kids are supposed to be getting easter eggs, who cares if poor Jimmy didn't get 4 baskets full of eggs?
 
2013-04-02 11:02:11 AM
Injured mom will certainly shell out some scratch to get that nose fixed.  If they were going to peck a fight, they could have done so for better reasons.

This is serious. It was a AAA Large USDA unapproved brawl.

I'd consider taking my kids to this one.  Zoos are rarely able to recreate animals interacting in their natural habitats, but I think they nailed it here.

I'm with bsharitt.  I don't bother taking my kid to any - even when I went last year at his daycare, it was a madhouse.  There's no excuse, unless the kid is like under 4 or 5, for a parent to be "helping" their kid pick up eggs.  It's sad that the goal of these is "omfg how much crap can little Timmy get" rather than everybody having fun.  My son's uncle does an easter egg hunt for him in his yard every year, which is much more fun for everybody involved.  Now that my son is getting older too (he's 4), his uncle is starting to come up with some fun hiding places.

Using the adjective "bad" in front of the word "pun" is an oxymoron. This implies that there are "good" puns.

Our hunt is just family, so it's not a madhouse usually. But seriously, people. Limit the eggs each kid can find. You can find x eggs, and then you're done. Problem solved.

This. The only public Easter egg hunts I ever took my daughter to that didn't leave me appalled were at churches.

Cwolf, omelette you finish, but 'poached' was one of the best egg puns of all times.

I love these easter egg hunts.  I usually hit 3 or 4 in the morning with my kid Ralph every year.  Ralph's a bit stocky, due to many generations of large family breeding, and he can really use his size to capitalize on the egg finding.  We have this strategy where I distract the moms with my boyish good lucks or an accidental 'slip and fall' breast grab, and when one of their kids spots an egg, Ralph snags two or three out of their basket.  If he can't get to their basket, he'll just pretend slam into em kind of like a down syndrome baby meeting a sliding glass door.   It works out pretty well for us.  Even when Ralph gets caught taking eggs out of other kids baskets, I can calm the helicopter moms down by letting em know that Ralph's mom killed herself just a few months back, and he has to have extra of everything to stash away because he's scared that they will just up and leave him.  It's actually gotten me some pretty good Easter milf action for a few years.  Yeah it's pity sex on 'christ out of the cave day' but i get to go home and have the real thing afterwards with the wifey while Ralph goes over the loot.  We had a good score this time.  Might even be able to save a few more bucks by giving some out at Halloween this year.
 
2013-04-02 11:30:55 AM
What they should really do is follow the example of the Simpsons in At Long Last Leave and have the kids put in an arena of sorts where they use various weapons in a fight to the death.  The winner takes the eggs.

I think you can make an eggception in this case...

You mean using "bad" in front of "pun' is redundant.  "Good Pun" would be the oxymoron.

I'd take my kids to this. Not for the Easter eggs, but for the sweet mom-fights.

Thank you for the gentle correction.  Up to my eyeballs at work.  I shouldn't have even commented without researching my terms, but I really hate puns.

There are some "good" puns.  The difference is a bad pun makes you roll your eyes, while a good pun makes you groan and smirk.  Reference one of the Terry Pratchet discworld books for examples, some of his puns are very clever.

So, one mother abused assaulted another mother's kid, and got away with it?   Where is the outrage?  Someone think of the children (yadda yadda yadda).

Ooooh, thank you.  And I understand about work.  I have frequently posted the exact opposite of what I meant because I was doing too many things at once.

I think at this point most people automatically assume if they suck they're puns and if they're good, they're "clever wordplay."
