Something profound

I like things that grab your attention and draw you in. I’d love a job as the sleeve writer for book covers – those little excerpts that make people want to read it.

Daniel was afraid for his life, but he knew a decision had to be made, right or wrong, his life was destined to be changed forever,,,,

Like I said, I like to draw people in.

My thoughts for today are. What is the go with chocolate and Jesus day? I’ve never understood the whole Easter bunny and chocolate eggs deal in relation to celebrating Zombie Jesus rising from the dead. (If you’re religious I do apologise should I offend you. I’m not religious as you can probably tell)

See here’s the thing. You go anywhere in the world and stay at a motel, you WILL find what I refer to as the Jesus draw. The draw which contains the bible as distributed by Gideon’s (I don’t know who Gideon’s is) I’ve never owned a Bible, nor have I read any of it. I know some of the well known passages that get flogged in movies such as the valley of death speech from Pulp fiction. But other than that. I’m not up to speed on the whole Christian / Jesus / God thing. Though I do remember a time in ‘religion’ classes at primary school. (They were held once a month on a Thursday morning for an hour!) when the religious teacher lady asked some question (I don’t know what she asked as I didn’t actually hear that she said) as myself and this boy called Alan we’re not paying attention, he said something and my answer to him was ‘Jesus Christ’ and I was pulled back into reality by the teacher saying quite clearly at the front ‘Yes Sally that’s correct!’

What blows me away is:
a) Rabbits and eggs are married up (I’m assuming it’s some subliminal message about creating life maybe??)

b) Chocolate eggs and rabbits?

c) All I can see is a chocolate is apparently an aphrodisiac, and rabbits are well supposed to fuck a lot.

So what is the actual message of Easter? Other than Jesus is clearly a zombie as he’s come back from the dead!!! *lol* I can so hear my friends telling me I’m going to hell for that comment right now. Little do they know we’re probably already in it (hell)

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all about right and wrong, there’s an entire ‘morals’ entry there. But isn’t that human nature? That we treat others how we’d like to be treated? Thus my theory of those who are right fucking arse-holes basically give us a free ticket to be right fucking arse-holes back to them, because at the end of the day they aren’t trying to be cocky fuckers, they just want someone to treat them like shit!?!

So there is my profound thoughts on today Easter Sunday 2010 also known as ‘eat a shit load of chocolate day and ‘oi I’m not dead in here’ Zombie Jesus day.

That’s all I’ve got.

A friend of mine calls Easter "dead guy in a cave day". I'm not religious either, but to me Easter is a great time to catch up with friends and family. So Happy Easter!

Arj Barker got a huge applause on Friday night by opening with "I'm fucking glad Jesus died because that gave us all the opportunity to be here tonight".. I'd never thought about that before, but I liked it.

As for the eggs and chocolate thing, I think it's all a plot by the Christians to get us talking and thinking about Jesus... because Christmas wasn't enough.

"We've already given them presents to get them to celebrate our holidays. What else will they like?"
"Umm.. chocolate? I like chocolate"

You know, the Bible is a good book, no matter what your religious leanings. It's full of violence, sex, natural disasters, fights and people being burned for no good reason. It's pretty exciting and if you get the right version, the language is really pretty.

Though we all know the ending already.

Eggs, rabbits and chickens are all pagan symbols for new life, which is what we Christians tacked on to our Jesus holiday. Because you know, Jesus got a new life and stuff. So they marry up just nicely.

Pretty much all religions can tie their holiday traditions into the pagan rituals, because they're all tied to the seasons. Spring time (Northern hemisphere Easter) is new life. Winter time (also Northern Hemisphere Christmas) is when we have one last feast for the year, before the stores have to be carefully rationed until spring.

Where chocolate comes in, I don't know. Somehow I think that's tied to Mars, Hershey, Cadbury and other big confectionary business.
