Easter

Once again, Easter is almost upon us. However, before the big day, we have to complete Lent and endure Good Friday. Although for the life of me, I cannot fathom out what is supposed to be so good about it. It certainly wasn't good for the Jews. As the day marks the start of 2,000 years of persecution. Likewise, Jesus didn't have one of his better days. It wasn't even a good day for the Romans, as they had to work.

Nowadays, Good Friday is a much more palatable affair. Not only is it a national holiday, but we get to eat hot cross buns. Plus we also get to watch Ben-Hur on television.
The holiday period reaches it's climax with Easter Sunday. We celebrate this day with rabbit and chicken imagery, and the salad dodgers' favourites, chocolate eggs.
Unfortunately, there are always villains eager to take advantage of the festivities to satisfy their own evil ends. It has come to my attention, that throughout the period of Lent, catholic priests wear vestments of the same colour as Cadbury Dairy Milk wrappers. A colour easily identified with chocolate to any child in the country. Hence the grooming begins.
Catholic priests, fluffy bunnies and chocolate. Some naïve fat catholic boys might soon find lettuce slightly more appealing in the days to come.

  2. Give the catholics a break. What have they ever done to you? Or perhaps I don't need to ask that question. Okay, fair enough. Hang the bastards!

  3. Why do adults make kids go on Easter egg hunts? Isn't it just making work for both themselves and the kids alike. The adults have to get up early to hide the eggs. Then they have to stand around offering encouragement to impatient kids as they scramble about getting filthy dirty looking for their chocolate booty. Wouldn't it just be easier to give the kids the chocolate?

  4. I don't care what it's all about, just as long as I get my chocolate egg.

    1. Perhaps I should dip something in chocolate and offer it to you to taste.

    2. But it does seem to be possible to have too much salad.

  8. I must confess, I do enjoy being showered with gifts of chocolate at this time of year. Sex and chocolate go together so well. I suppose that that is what this post is all about. Although I'm more in favour of chocolate and legal sex.
