    The funniest thing about this? Eggs aren't spheres; they're ovoids.

    But I suspect it never happened...

    Oviods... Aren't they something to do with the female reproductive system? Oh, my bad I was thinking of peeps. Maybe some skaters can now be described as having an "ovoidy program".

    :rolleyes: Me, too. If it turns out someone actually said this to the girl, I will actually force myself to eat a Peep in penance for doubting her. And I never eat Peeps. They are revolting.

    I must say, though, that I find it kind of hysterically funny that it's Christians who appear to be the most upset about this. Er......

    I'll tell you what's revolting. The amount of Peeps hate on this board, that's what. :drama:

    Are Peeps more or less revolting than root beer or chocolate soda?

    Yes, another example of people not knowing (or being deliberately obtuse) about the true roots of the Easter holiday.

    Christianity did the same with Yule -> Christmas, BTW.

    Easter Eggs are in the Bible, right? Didn't Jesus paint one at the Last Supper?

    I'm reporting that to retired racehorse/dressage horse Ted the Peep Ho, who posts on Chronicle Forums. (How he types with hooves...) Though I admit, while I like Peeps, my own ex-racehorse finds them a tad puzzling at best.

    And the Christians don't give a crap about some random goddess. Easter falls where it does BECAUSE IT TRACKS WITH PASSOVER. The Last Supper is a seder meal, for heaven's sake, that's why real communion wafers have to be unleavened--Jesus was using unleavened bread. The whole OMG CHRISTIANITY STOLE FROM "PAGANS" (at most, hyper-fancy eggs from psyanky, which date to sun-worship in early Slavic and pre-Slavic tribes) tends to gloss over that especially where Easter's concerned, we just stole from Judaism. What with Jesus begin a Jew and the Crucifixion and Ressurection occuring on one if not the most important Jewish holiday.

    Peeps are disgusting.

    Root beer is awesome.
