What do you write on your eggs?

Of course, given a sacred family tradition like dyeing eggs, mix it with a pre-teen boy, and what do you end up with? An orange egg with the word “poop” written on it. Actually? There were TWO eggs with the word “poop” written on them, but the blue one didn’t show up as well as the orange one.

We didn’t dye as many eggs as we normally would have. I broke two while we were boiling them and one while we were dyeing them. I’m kinda klutzy like that. I was really glad we did get a chance to dye eggs though. Easter is not complete unless you have eggs with “poop” on them. I’m pretty sure that’s written in the New Testament somewhere.

  1. From someone who grew up with chickens and had the “doo-dy” of collecting the eggs – it’s far better to have poop written on the egg, than to have ACTUAL poop on the egg.

  2. Against Me! was on the main page of myspace today. I noticed it and thought it was kind of cool.

    And…coloring Easter eggs is so much fun. Especially when you write “poop” on them. Or draw sexual organs. Not that I’ve ever done that, or anything. I swear.

  3. My Mom made still tries to make us dye Easter Eggs every year. I’m 33 years old.

    Anyway, my brother (when I was in college) was really into that movie “Deep Cover”. One year he made all of his Easter Eggs “Deep Cover” themed, so they said things like “Felix Barbosa” or “Jumbo Barbeque Shrimp”. It kind of stuck with us, and every year I make a Felix Barbosa egg.


  4. I laughed my ass off at this one but rest assured it is not purely a boy thing – my daughters (and my hubby) thought this was hysterical so I am sure we will have our share of poop eggs as well. They kept talking about Lilz’s poop eggs for like an hour and giggling and even mentioned it this morning. We’ll just have to make sure we don’t take the poop eggs to grandma’s.
