Oh Brother: White House Using Fake Eco-Eggs for Easter


And here I thought regular eggs were eco-friendly. You know, the ones found in nature and originally created by God - unless he created the chicken first (which is always open for debate). Fake Easter eggs for a fake Messiah. Almost seems appropriate.

The White House announcement Monday said that the eggs at this year's April 5 roll will be made from paperboard that contains no wood fibers from endangered forests, is recyclable and features vegetable oil-based inks and a water-based coating. They'll come in purple, pink, green, and yellow.

They will also surely disappoint every kid in America. Unless your child is the sad tyke that dreams of finding paperboard eggs with absolutely no wood fiber. Ah, but what child among us can resist the pleasures of recycling? Once again, the joyful nature of youth is being outlawed by whining, self-righteous do gooders. But wait. There's a theme:

This year's theme for the roll is "Ready, set, go!" (really... someone got paid for that?) and part of Mrs. Obama's plan to promote health and wellness in the United States and combat childhood obesity.

No word yet on whether Michelle Obama plans to replace the traditional Easter chocolate with fruits and vegetables from her garden, but I'm willing to bet the first lady is the same type of parent who doesn't hand out candy on Halloween.

As the Jawa Report puts it, in the age of Obama even chickens are being laid off. Oh well. At least it's a step up from the Mao Christmas ornaments.
