And in a markedly newer observance,…
The X-Men have got to have a wild Easter. What with Nightcrawler hiding eggs in interdimensional hidey holes, Beast very excitedly explaining the Pagan origins of the holiday’s traditions, and Deadpool just throwing stuffed rabbits at everyone, it’s an eventful day.
If you thought the funky tie-dye Easter egg designs you created last weekend raised the bar, you’ve got about a year to try and top what Jiri Zemanek of the University of Prague came up with. His Easter eggs feature looped animated designs that look like a Spirograph has come to life.
On Monday, while reading an Easter story to dozens of children she’s about to doom to a substandard education, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was featured on the official White House Snapchat under an interesting title: “Secretary of Educatuon.”
The Cleveland Police Department is searching for a man named Steve “Stevie Steve” Stephens in connection with the murder of an elderly man that was broadcast live on Stephens’ Facebook page. In earlier posts, he claimed to be perpetrating an “Easter day slaughter.”
