Richard Simmons in a bunny suit? Buster from that PBS kids' show Arthur? Just don't try and tell me you didn't think "gay rabbit" when you saw the picture.
From Weasel Zippers:
The White House announced Monday that this year’s Easter Egg Roll will be “more environmentally friendly,” including eggs made with wood certified by an environmental activist organization and packaging “to minimize waste and environmental impact.”Green eggs and scam.
The press release issued by the White House states that the eggs will be produced in the United States from hardwood “certified” by the Forest Stewardship Council, a non-profit organization with a presence in 50 countries and a mission “to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.”
The “greener” packaging for the eggs – available in purple, pink, green and yellow – is made from paperboard certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. The paperboard “uses no wood fibers from controversial sources” and the printed carton the egg comes in can be recycled. The packaging is also decorated with vegetable oil-based inks and water-based coatings.
BTW - "Earth Day" lands on Good Friday this year, April 22. Any Catholic who attempts to connect the two events - such as a priest during Good Friday services, for instance - ought to be ex-communicated on the grounds of being an idiot.
Guess which one I will not be celebrating that day.
