    Easter celebrates the age-old myth of Jeebus' reincarnation as a zombie bunny whose skull was filled with naught but chocolate goo, and who poo'd jelly beans. Many people believe this was unique to Zombie Bunny Jeebus, but in fact all zombies are filled to the metaphorical gills with sweets and candy, and have been since the first Easter. Don't believe me? Go split open a zombie.

    People harvested zombie bunny skulls for centuries. They would bake them, and after cooling the chocolate inside would solidify whereupon the skulls would be cracked open and the solid chocolate eaten.

    Centuries later, the process is modernised and no longer requires zombie bunnies. The chocolate skulls have become egg-shaped, but the eating of bunny-shaped chocolates is still widely practiced, harkening back to a more rudimentary confectionary origin.

    The jelly-bean poos of centuries ago were carrot and swede-flavoured. In modern-day practice, these have been replaced with sugary and fruity-flavoured sweets, the precise flavours of which varies from culture to culture, ranging from orange and strawberry to wasabi.

    The colouring of Easter eggs is a direct carry-over from the practice by many of painting the bunny skulls and giving them as gifts to friends and families.

    Interestingly, the expression "put a cork in it", used to vulgarly tell a person who is speaking to you that you don't wish to hear what is coming out of their mouth, has its origins in the bunny skull baking days, where a cork, at the time little more than a hard bit of mud or stone, was placed in the various skull cavities including the mouth in order to prevent any chocolate goo leaking out before the hardening process was complete.

    Well, I never knew zombie bunnies tasted so nice. Though here in Belgium it's the easter bells that bring the eggs
