Believing in the Easter Bunny is like saying
you believe in an over sized purple bunny,
pooping colorful eggs all over your lawn.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Good Idea: Finding Easter eggs on Easter Sunday.
Bad Idea: Finding Easter eggs at Thanksgiving.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
The Easter Bunny made his list and
checked it not once but twice.
And unfortunately, he found that
you've been naughty not nice.
Now, I knew it was bad news
when his ears started to droop.
But he still left you special
brightly-wrapped bunny poop!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~Rules of Chocolate Easter Eggs ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.
Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

Diet tip: Eat an Easter egg before each meal.
It'll take the edge off your appetite, and that way you'll eat less.

If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?
If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.

Money talks. Chocolate sings.
Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.
The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate eggs home from the store in a hot car.
The solution: Eat the eggs in the car park.

Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?
Because no one wants to quit.

emoticon WHAT IS YOUR MONEY WORTH? emoticon
Too many people buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have,
to impress people they don’t like............Will Rogers.

Money is not the most important thing in the world. Love is.
Fortunately, I love money............Jackie Mason

Many people are so poor because the only thing they have is money.

Don't think money does everything, or you are going to end up
doing everything for money.
