The Mailtes have started, too:


Revealed: The value-for-money Easter eggs that contain MORE chocolate that it says on the packaging
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/food/ ... money.html

Collington, Oxford, United Kingdom, 1 hour ago
How many of these eggs actually have EASTER on the EXCESSIVE packaging?
+46 -8

If it doesn't say Easter its not an Easter egg.Don't buy them without Easter on.
+32 -6
Hesnotthemessiah, Cambs, United Kingdom, 1 hour ago
And none of them have the words "happy" or "easter" on them. I wonder why...
+32 -7

Where¿s the reference to Easter. First it was Christmas being rebranded winter holiday, now Easter. They are happy to make millions out of a Christian festival but refuse to acknowledge it on their product. Probably too late this year but next year we should all boycott any products which do not acknowledge the festival they are making money out of.

Any body else notice, those eggs on display, no longer actually use the words ' EASTER EGG ' ?
+17 -2


And over in the 'Never Happened' corner:

Vindigirl, London, United Kingdom, 35 minutes ago
it has been banned at my Grandson's school in Kent because the majority are you know what.
+5 -1

I know it's the wrong thread, but you have reminded me of Christmastime in the factory I worked in when I left school, and how happy the Pakistanis there were to receive, and give! Christmas cards. Not just the grass-muslims who'd join us in the pub after work and drink Scotch (Bells was the favourite iirc) but the religious ones who observed Ramadan and went into the little room provided for them to pray several times a day.

I can only assume all this "ofendz teh muzzies" crap comes from stupidity tempered with profound ignorance.

I really am beginning to despair for this country.

As an addendum to the above, my adoptive Turkish family have taken to adorning their Facebook and messenger pics with Easter chicks - and they're 'you know whats' .
Well of course. Easter represents the culmination of the teachings of the second-greatest prophet in Islam.

The Pope has allegedly just abolished Hell (I shit you not). The comments when the M*il readership wake up to this should make for an illuminating theological discussion.

On the account of a 93-year old with a history of rather inaccurate reports of Pope Frank's views.
Denied by the Vatican.

An interesting point, were the report true, would be that the pope would be stressing one element of the conventional view of hell, rather than another. Playing down the fire, brimstone and demons with nasty toasting forks and playing up the eternal separation from the grace of god.

I wish he'd given some warning.

I'm stuck with a stack of this useless currency
