Easter Pretty Barbie

Jesus, God’s Son. My teenager reports that when you press a button, He intones the Our Father, among other things, in what she describes as a “hunky” voice. Hear Him speak John 3:16!

Mary Messenger of Faith. Also recites Bible verses.

These guys, in a box marked “Contains the Story of Moses.” Count the loaves and fishes in the basket belonging to the rather dumbstruck-looking . . . uh . . . latter-day friend of Moses.

“Chocolate-Covered Bunny’s.” Now . . . first I wondered how they got the “bunny’s” to hold still long enough to cover them with chocolate. Then I thought maybe they just dipped them, which would be not a tidy operation, but there are dedicated people out there willing to go to great lengths to do all kinds of things, so, you know . . .


But then I was informed that the “Chocolate Covered Bunny’s” sign also said, “Hollow!” So technically what we’re talking about here is “Chocolate-Covered Bunny-Shaped Air.” While supplies last.
