Yes, because Jesus hiding the eggs was such a central part of the bible story... sheesh.

  Yeah, Jesus slides down the chimney hiding hardboiled colored eggs all over the place.  His reindeer stay on the roof.  The Easter bunny helps him find good places for the eggs. 

But oddly, when I was a kid, I colored those eggs.  At 10, as the eldest child, I started to help my parents hide those eggs (as a kid, I knew the good places).  Jesus and the Easter Bunny slid off my list of real things around that time.

Happy early easter everyone.
E = Mc²

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

War on Ishtar? Isn't she a war Goddess? That seems like a bad fight to pick...

Yes, scary.  She was one of the worst movies ever made "Ishtar (film)".
