Sometimes when other people have too much time on their hands, it is for our gain. Example: Peeps dressed like Miley Cyrus. Peep-Miley from her “Wrecking Ball” video and many others were entries in The Washington Post‘s annual Peeps diorama contest, all of which you can see online. When Easter dinner gets awkward, fire up the laptop for a slideshow that will be entertaining to one and all. [Washington Post]
What’s not to love about Easter? The family time? The food? The Easter egg hunts and big ol’ baskets of chocolate? I’m a big fan of it all. But perhaps my favorite Easter pastime is watching the cute little kiddies run around in their Sunday best, looking like they were plucked directly from the pages of the JC Penny catalogue. And even better than that are the epic photos when kids are taken to the mall for the first (okay, or seventh) time to see the Easter Bunny. I remember when I was that age, and Easter was my JAM.

Well played, Obama family! [Photo: Getty]
I was too busy hosting brunch and raiding my kids’ Easter baskets to notice what yesterday’s Google doodle was, but apparently it was INCREDIBLY controversial. The anti-religious leftists in Mountain View had the gall to not only choose a doodle that had nothing to do with colorful eggs, chocolate bunnies, or Jesus H. Christ himself — they honored a big old lefty instead by celebrating would have been the 86th birthday of Latino civil rights leader Cesar Chávez.
Clearly this was a political statement from those sneaky liberals. Why else celebrate the lesser-known birthday of a progressive icon when they could be reminding us all that it was EASTER?
Unless … unless they’re a non-religious organization that isn’t held to a Christian agenda and they’re known for focusing on historical events that educate, rather than consistently pointing out something that everyone’s already aware of? Read more…
