Parents, It Is Unseemly To Brawl With One Another Over Easter Eggs

Featured

i came here to hunt easter eggs and kick ass, and i'm all out of easter eggs


You know what kind of people are the literal worst? Parents. Now, we are sure that those among you who have spawned are protesting and saying no no no, perhaps OTHER breeding types are bad people but you yourself are a beacon of sweetness and light and your child really is indeed all that. We are not going to listen to even one minute of that shit unless you are willing to disavow this particular parental behavior.

PEZ Candy abruptly canceled its third annual Easter egg hunt Saturday after parents stormed the field in Connecticut, according to a company news release.

Children as young as 4 were pushed aside by parents eager to grab as many of the 9,000 eggs hidden in three fields.

Listen, you fucking helicopter mommies and daddies, children are perfectly capable of hunting their own Easter eggs. The entire enterprise is actually literally designed only for child participation, not for you to turn into rugby thugs over the whole thing. Who the ever-living-fuck is competitive about Easter eggs, anyway? We get that some things are worth going full Lord of the Flies over, like getting little Atticus or Seraphina into a good preschool, but will your child really feel less empowered and special snowflake-y just because they got fewer Easter eggs? Apparently, yes.

“Unfortunately people chose to enter the first field prior to anyone from Pez staff starting the activity. The crowd moved to the second field, waited for only a couple of minutes and proceeded to rush the field without being directed to do so and before the posted start time,” Pez officials said in a statement on Saturday.

Pez officials said the crowd of people “immediately moved to the third field, took over and removed everything well before the activity was to even start.”

"So we started talking to people and say 'hey this is supposed to start at certain time'," Pez General Manager Shawn Peterson said. "Well that lasted about a minute and everyone just rushed the field and took everything."

Welch told Eyewitness News that children were trampled, parents knocked over children and eggs were stolen out of peoples’ baskets. Peterson said the crowd was "kind of like locusts."

What a story to tell your child lovingly, repeatedly, as they grow up: "Remember when mommy and daddy actually cut a bitch in order to make sure you had the most eggs? Never forget that you had the very most eggs and can have anything you want in life, my bright and shining star."

Why can't these parents just chill out, maybe smoke some weed? That would probably make the whole Easter egg hunt thing much less stressful. Oh, wait.

A neighborhood Easter egg hunt was marred by the threat of violence and a police response that found an unlicensed marijuana business and $108,000. [...]

A man ran into the neighborhood screaming his roommate was going to shoot him. When police responded they found [...] more than 45 pounds of pot.

Takeaway? Adults ruin everything. Easter, drugs, everything. Never grow up.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
