I kinda got in trouble with the writer of Ardra. He told me on Friday to try and get an Easter Special in by Sunday.

Well.. I was tired, but I still worked on it... He said to have them in Easter Bonnets and dresses.... Well... insomnia makes you see things... and I saw "Easter Bunny Suits"....


so... yea :/

I always found it ironic that crosses are used to banish or ward off undead, yet the very thing they symbolize came back from death. All hail Zombie Jesus! (I kid!)

Also, saw a funny article about a chain of stores in england doing a press release about a sale, but in it, they talk about how too many people have forgotten the "true" meaning of easter, which they say is celebrating the birth of jesus. People point out the error, and they issue a correction that says "rebirth" of jesus. Finally the church stands up and is like "We, uh... actually use the term "resurrection" for that. And they issue a third release, stating the true meaning of easter, which everyone else has forgotten, is the resurrection of Jesus. Of course, that doesn't explain eggs or bunnies, or the rest. Thus, the original/true meaning is actually the old fertility rituals in celebration of the goddess Eostre.

Don't get me wrong, there's only 365 days in a year, so pretty much every holiday is bound to be on top of another holiday, but the fact that we're still doing on the bunny/eggs/grass stuff is just hilarious. Especially when you consider that so many christians, who would go to any length to prevent gay marriage, censor the airwaves, or fight any other perceived moral threat, seem to have no problem letting their kids run around with bunnies, hunting eggs, and otherwise practicing the rites of a pagan goddess. It just cements my belief that people don't so much get mad at things because they find them wrong, but rather because someone else TELLS them they should find them wrong.

Anyway, happy easter to everyone! May your eggs be chocolatey, and your saviors undead!

If we cut out all the chocolate and cut fuzzy critters, all we'd really be celebrating is the end of fish and lasagna Fridays.  Soon enough we'd forget the holiday with no sugary traditions surrounding it (like the various saints days or the 'National' holidays like presidents day).  Don't give in to the chocolate! It's a secret plot to ensure Easter survives beyond a day for low interest car loans and half-off sales!
