A MAN is reflecting on the death and resurrection of the son of God by eating a Creme Egg, it has emerged.
As Easter gets underway, Roy Hobbs is taking a moment to dutifully remember the brutal crucifixion of Jesus Christ by biting into a popular egg-shaped chocolate filled with white and yellow fondant.
He said: “A lot of people forget that Easter is partly about how Jesus was persecuted and put to death for being a prophet. It’s a pretty important event in the Christian calendar which deserves to be treated with respect.
“That’s why I always take a moment to think about the sacrifice of our Lord as I indulge in a mouthful of sweet, sugary Creme Egg goodness. By following his example I don’t get drawn in by the commercialised temptations of the Easter holidays.
“And let’s not forget that on the third day Jesus rose again. Which is almost as miraculous as the syrupy centre of this delicious Cadbury’s treat. It’s a shame he died thousands of years before they hit the shelves, really.”
Reaching for the next Creme Egg in his huge stockpile, Hobbs added: “They make them with white chocolate now as well, you know. Jesus would’ve f**king loved that.”
