    So I was having a discussion with someone about the traditions of Easter.

    We concluded that once a year chickens and rabbits go to war (not really sure why yet). The rabbits steal the chicken's eggs and hide them and the chickens get pay back by hallowing out the rabbits and dipping them in chocolate. How does this sound?

    In Jamaica we eat "bun and cheese" for Easter. Can you explain that?

    P.S. the idea sounds...feasible...


    Whence comes this logic: no evidence = false?

    That's odd, I heard of a similar story involving sand monkeys and bunnies..

    Yes I can. Everything else either melts or is smoked. :wink:

    Easter doesnt mean anything to me, other than the annoyance of running out of ciggies or milk sunday morning. (Rather like christmas except you have stuff to do on xmas, like open pressies, watch TV, stay warm and enjoy a nice xmas dinner) - What can you do on easter ?? Its so boring I might go crucify MYSELF for a bit of entertainment.
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    Easter for me is nothing about rabbits hiding eggs. it's completely diffrent from that. I was this year the first time celebrating easter. I do not really know where the use of easter bunnies and eggs derives from but I think it has something to do with fruitfulness. bunnies are very fruitful as you can see in australia. they rapidly have invaded the continent. and an egg is even the top symbol of fruitfulness because the babies come out of it. Easter means life, life for eternity. evidently, eggs and bunnies express life. Easter also means to get free from depts or sin. thus, it involves a feeling of having a new life.


    The use of eggs and bunnies deals with this aspect of life and fruitfulness, but I do not know why a bunny is used for it. A few centuries ago, it was not only a bunny that brought the colored eggs but also a fox or a cuckoo dependingly on the region.

    The use of easter bunnies and eggs dervies from the pagan festival called "Ostera" which come around a month after the spring equinox (if I remember correctly)

    The eggs symbolising new life and the rabbits symbolising fertility.

    I was over in Australia during Easter. It was interesting to note they celebrate Easter the same way we do; commemorating the death and resurrection of Jesus by telling our children a giant bunny rabbit left chocolate eggs in the night. Now, I wonder why we’re fucked up as a race. You know, I’ve read the Bible. I can’t find the words ‘bunny’ or ‘chocolate’ anywhere in the fucking book. Where do you come up with this shit? Why those two things? Why not ‘Goldfish left Lincoln Logs in your sock drawer’? As long as we’re making shit up, go hog wild. At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back crawling across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it!"

    What's sad is that the true meaning of Easter has been Hijacked by the Christian whackos....execution, blood drinking and resurrection of a zombie. Why can't the Christians leave good enough alone and take the death and agony out of the enjoyment of the egg as a fertility symbol and the anticipation of biting the ears off of a chocolate bunny.

    doesnt even have to be a chocolate one, id bite the ears off a real one

    I remember one easter i was about 8 years old, the chocolate bunny my parents had bought me just kept falling over. I later discovered it had acutally caught chocolateytosis.
