Marshmallows for Christ?

Aaack! I admit that I went Googling this afternoon for other oddities of Easter (besides Peeps). But slap me silly — look what I found!

Tombs of Christ. Really?

Ok, this is just so wrong. I’m not religious but from my point of view nothing shares the depth of passion and commitment you have for Christianity better than giving your kid a sugary, hollow little bun, telling him it’s like the tomb of Christ and Christ was the marshmallow.

Here’s the recipe, direct from a site that should have an inside track.



I'm a writer making my way through life and offering observations as I go. Old enough to know better but that doesn't stop me.
