Christians and Jews, just a couple of days ago, celebrated the Holiest Days of the Year in their respective religions - Easter for the followers of Jesus and the Passover for the celebrants of Judaism. Of course, remembering the triumph of God over sin reflects only the religious side of the Easter/Passover story.
To many people these days, Easter is simply a day for the kids to dress up in their Sunday-Go-To-Meetin' finery, even if they don't go to Sunday Meetin', and hunting all the colorful eggs left behind by chickens who were raised on LSD or some really good 'shrooms. But, I digress.
I must confess, no Catholic pun intended, that I have never met The Messiah face to face. I've never met Jesus either, although I do recognize Him as the Son of Man and the Founder of the Church that we know today as the Catholic Church. However, I am not here to do a post on my (or your) religious beliefs.
I am here to show you how some "Christians" choose to "celebrate" these Holiest of Days.
Take this family in Memphis, Tennessee. Please!!!
Mayhem in the Blues City
Like millions of Christians worldwide, Annette Pearson was celebrating the holiday with some guests, another family. Annette had carefully hidden Easter eggs around her yard to be just difficult enough to find that the children present would be a bit challenged to find them. So far, so good.
But! You just knew that a big ass BUT! was about to rear its ugly head. This is, after all, Dumbass
One of the eggs that Annette had hidden was a "Grand Prize Golden Egg!" In it was $7! Seven dollars!? Are you kiddin' me? A young crack head in Memphis can't even buy a decent-size rock for seven bucks. seven big ones was evidently some serious cheese to one of Annette's Easter guests from the other family, as he rather vociferously objected to what he thought was Annette helping her own kids to locate the Grand Prize Golden Egg with the $7 in it. This dumbass got so mad that the slapped Annette upside the head! Not just once, but twice!
This is when the real fun started.
What Would Jesus Do?
WWJD is not a question that entered Annette's freshly slapped head. Upon being assaulted over a $7 Grand Prize Golden Egg, she went inside her house and grabbed $25 Balck & Decker Claw Hammer.
The dumbass that smacked Annette on her skull soon found out that it didn't matter what Jesus would do, it only mattered that Annette clobbered him upside his own head with the claw end of the hammer! The man was now bleeding like a stuck pig headed for the rotisserie at a Memphis BBQ Joint.
Did I note that the other family soon joined in on the brawl? They did. More mayhem ensued. Assholes, elbows and ball peen hammers were everywhere! No mention of the $25 B & D Claw Hammer at this point. There is a mention of the arrival of the Memphis Police Department, however.
Sadly, the dumbass who wailed away on Annette's noggin was not arrested, but his wound did require four staples to close. Annette, on the other hand, was hauled off for $25 Black & Decker Claw Hammer Assault and is now enjoying the hospitality of the Shelby County Inmate Easter Club, headed up by janet Reno lookalike inmate, Julie "Spike" Snodgrass.
Happy Easter, Annette!
