There's something tragic about Easter candies: the prolonged dismemberment of chocolate bunnies; the microwave execution of stale Peeps; the buried-alive panic of mini-chocolates stuffed into a plastic egg that was never found. But all that pales in comparison with the grim discovery Empty Sandwich shared with SA's Forums!

Empty Sandwich

I've wondered for some time what would happen if I incubated a Cadbury Creme Egg. The problem is, only unfertilized Cadbury eggs are sold in stores.

So I did what anyone else would do: I called around, asked some very discreet questions, and managed to get my hands on some fertilized eggs.

I don't know how my source managed to fertilize them, or what kinds of animals he used. (He was awfully cagey on those points. I told him no humans, and he agreed. Or said he did.) I don't know whether these are legal to have, or ethical to have, or anything else. This is basically backyard-meth-lab science.

All I know is that today, I carefully cut open an egg that'd been incubating for 14 days, and I took some pictures:

Here's what I know so far:

Nothing living is going to come out of these eggs. I don't know if it's the creme, or my bullshit jury-rigged non-scientist science, or if these are just horrible chimerae that man should not have created and that nature cannot suffer to live.

I heard of a live one but it only lived about a few seconds after being hatched. It all comes down to how well you perform the incubation process. Some guy on reddit is claiming to have it perfected.


Not alive you say? Well, he seems pretty perky to me!

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

  • Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
