Colbert, Fox News Anchors Appalled By Attacks on Easter Eggs

New, 2 comments

Stephen Colbert's "rage is exploding like a peep in a microwave!" Why? Because Easter is under attack: everyone is suddenly calling Easter eggs "Spring Eggs" and "Spring Spheres." And he's not alone! Some Fox News Anchors are so angry about the politically correct name change that they "can't even say it." What if an entire generation grows up thinking egg shapes are spheres?!

As if that weren't bad enough, the Obamas decided to make the White House's traditional wooden Easter eggs out of environmentally-friendly particle board this year. As Colbert puts it, "That's like saying Jesus was crucified on plywood!"
