Chocolate Bunnies in the Night

The late, great Bill Hicks said it best:

”I was over in Australia, uh, during Easter, which was interesting. 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. Anybody? Anybody got any clues out there, or…? Where do you get this shit from, you know? Why those two things, you know?

Why not goldfish left Lincoln logs in your sock drawer, you know? Long as we’re makin’ shit up, go hog wild, you know? At least a goldfish with a Lincoln log on it’s back goin’ across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

Childlike voice: Mummy, I woke up today and there was a Lincoln log in me sock drawer!…that’s the story of Jesus.” Bill Hicks

And people give me shit for being an atheist, WOW.  Yeah, I’m the crazy one here.

Next thing you know someone will try to tell me that the birth of Jesus is commemorated by a fat guy in a red suit sliding down a chimney leaving presents for all the good kids around the world.

DUH’America, Happy Fucking Easter.  Keep watching TMZ, keep drinking your Budweiser, keep buying Suburbans; the rickshaws are on their way.
