    Finally! The link between Jesus and chocolate eggs has been explained to me.

  2. thanks for setting the facts straight! And to think I thought it was a Christian rip-off of a pagan holiday

  3. JoJo says:

    Mmmmmmmm… Chocolate..

  4. easter bunny says:

    Remember – chocolate is for life, not just for easter

  5. mishahu says:

    chilled for a couple of days. love it!

  6. Daniel says:

    Jesus spent a weekend dead for your sins.

    You forgot the part about how he also saved all the space aliens living on other planets. That’s like the BEST part! Next to the part about the chocolate.

  7. maggs says:

    “Which bit?” wonderful…

  8. Jerry w says:

    The news this morning reports that a suicide bomber killed 48 in Pakistan, and 60 died when a dam broke near Jakarta.

    My math skills are somewhat limited, but I think that this means that god is ahead of the terrorists by a ratio of 5 to 4. Now there’s some chilling.

  9. rcw says:

    I have personally seen the chocolate eggs, the rest is the bit that’s questionable.

  10. Submoron says:

    It’s a hare not a rabbit!

  11. dyl says:

    I don’t believe in chocolate eggs, They’re just chocolate bars melted an molded into egg form. But you can believe what you like.

  12. Hobbes says:

    A hair brought the eggs?

  13. grouchy-one says:

    I’m keeping all my chocolate eggs until they hatch into chocolate chickens

  14. Stonyground says:

    I think that the Pagans revered the eggs and rabbits as they represented fertility. Fertility was very important in olden times as it sort of made the difference between just going hungry and actually starving.

  15. Uncle Roger says:

    “Now that’s just silly” Spoing!

  16. JohnnieCanuck says:

    Which bit? Oh, that’s easy, Mo. The ears. Chocolate Easter Bunnies are made in His Image and I have proof. None of the CEBs my wife bought for our kids ever had ears just like the picture of Him above.

    Silly wabbit story. Who’d be gullible enough to believe in a cartoon about a talking animal? Snakes, asses, rabbits, humans, all the same thing. What? They think humans are too special to be classed as animals? So maybe they are thinking plants or fungi?.

    Who’s being silly, now?

  17. grouchy-one says:

    This remindes me of Dawkins’ description on Original Sin – a curious disease passed down from father to son through the semen…
    “of course the story of Adam an Eve was only ever symbolic, wasn’t it? Symbolic? So, in order to impress himself, Jesus had himself tortured and executed, in vicarious punishment for a symbolic sin committed by a non-existent individual? As I said, barking mad, as well as viciously unpleasant”

    Says it all really

  18. Ketil G says:

    heehehe Bunny rabbit lays chocolate egg on easter, not Jesus

  19. hyoid says:

    Which bit indeed.

  21. Chris says:

    Actually if you do some research you would find that the whole Easter thing is a spring ritual to bring back the sun from the underworld. The eggs are painted red with with deer on each side of the tree of life. The rabbit is actually a wind spirit that carries the sun back and the egg is rebirth of the sun and the life of the world. It goes much deeper than that. The Christian religions just took the pagan ritual over to convert the people.

  22. zigby says:

    South Park explains the true story…

  23. Nick says:

    the chocolate eggs are a lie.

  24. Don says:

    Quite so, Grouchy-one. No talking snake = no original sin = no need for the blood sacrifice=this stuff makes no sense at all=invent theology.

  25. Stephen Turner says:

    Just to clarify a couple of biological points:
    (1) Ketil G: Bunnies don’t lay chocolate eggs – bunnies are mammals and therefore viviparous, so (if they are made of chocolate) they give birth to live chocolate bunnies.

    (2) Grouchy-one: the best way to speed up the hatching of your chocolate eggs is to sit on them, or to put them under your pillow. Either of these strategies will also help keep them safe from predators.

  26. Daoloth says:

    Stephen- you are forgetting monotremes. Otherwise known as “Gods little jokes”.

  27. Stephen Turner says:

    Ah yes, the monotremes. When the first skins and dead specimens came to Europe they were dismissed as fakes.

    If chocolate were mentioned in the Bible that would really be something. And when Christ is shown the whole world by Satan during his temptation, another opportunity to demonstrate knowledge of America was missed.

  34. crazyamigo says:

    I think the chocolate eggs and bunny is a multi million dollar contract between cadbury, nesttle and the vatican .I wonder if Jesus ask for a cup of hot chocolate when he was thirsty nailed to the cross or he change water into chocolate in Canaan
