Easter egg sales 'soar by almost 50%'
30/03/2021 | news | business | 589
M&S, Asda and Thorntons are among those seeing a big rise in eggs sales ahead of the Easter weekend.
Now would be a good time to examine the racist terminology endemic in the Easter Egg culture. Using ‘dark’ and ‘black magic’ alongside ‘white’ chocolate to segregate eggs only further divides our society. The colonial racial undertones are evident throughout the chocolate culture and is deeply offensive. I’m proposing a demonstration to subject guilty laden white eggs to a mass meltdown. Removed

Mungo Park - LOL - I've now got brown coffee spills all over my white tee shirt and black trousers due to laughing so hard. Maybe we should segregate my clothes as their colours may offend someone! And where's my white coffee beans, they must be under a spell! - Offended by an Easter egg based on its colour, really Mungo?!! Time to Cancel Cancel Culture, we've reached extreme levels of stupidty

I also get offended by:
The overtly feminine shape of easter eggs
The cost to the environment of the packaging and ingredients
The joy they provide to children/the sorrow to children in poverty
Their religious connotations

I am a chocolate oviod wrapped in foil but am deeply offended you automatically assume I'm happy to be referred to as an 'egg'.

I identify as a non-angular chocolate bar and expect to be referred to as such, my preferred pronoun is 'chocx'.

Agreed.

Not really magic is it?

Now I'm no economist or analyst, but I bet my left back upper tooth that they'll be a LOT of other products that have a marked increase this year compared to 2021...

A LOT...

Perhaps the BBC could send me an application and make me their senior economist?
If you are so smart, why not find a news site that fits your expectations better, raher than keep coming here and moaning, as if you expect the BBC to suddenly change because the superior intellect that is adeyb has pointed out the error of thier ways? Removed

Great news, fat kids & rotten teeth.
So the kids are going to live on a diet of choccy eggs for the rest of the year, are they, or does the smart Brass Eye not understand the concept of a treat? Removed

That's how drug addicts start off thinking a rap of drugs is a treat. Fat, sugar and salt are also well know agonists of the dopamine reward pathway - keep them addicted eh and profits up.

I always console myself that those that behave like that are needed by society as cannon fodder from time to time. Too stupid for their own good.

Easter egg sales, a topic Beeb HYS hoped would not ruffle feathers (feathers egg - ha! ha!) quiet day for the moderator but contributors will always try find a way to bring it round to their agenda / hobby horse. Breggsit - Hows about that then? To quote Sir Jams, knight of the realm, friend of the Pope and stalwart of Beeb. Guys and Gals, Lads and Lassies - who'd like to jangle me jewelry? Removed

The tumbleweed generally rolls through HYS if the 'agenda' refuses to shift?
Headlines sale.
So BBC being a tax payer funded parasite it needs to show that they are on top of every story, no matter how biased, economical with the truth, or just plain stupid.
Its justification of tax payers money.

And the fat get fatter and the Nottingham Park litters need arresting and preferably deporting. I couldn't care if they're permanently on lockdown. The beauty of this world is watsed on them.
