A Seacoast-area church held an Easter egg hunt Saturday in Rochester unlike any other, dropping 60,000 eggs from the sky with big prizes on the line.

As God is my witness,I thought...



Was WKRP's Les Nessman there to cover it?

We were all tuned to the same memory pattern there!

"Oh, the humanity!..."

Darn you, Siouxie. Get out of my brain!

*Cues up Wagner on the helicopter PA system*

"I love the smell of omelets in the morning."

It was an eggstreme ovation.

They are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement!

Everyone scrambled. Some were even beaten.

Guess the yolk's on them.


Omelette you go first next time, Jeffypoo ;-P

As G-d is my witness, i thought eggs could fly...

"I started getting elbowed in the head and stuff. So, I just started diving over moms," said Johnnie Plaisted, of Rochester."

I'm sure little Johnnie's mom is proud...


They haven't already surrendered?

I started getting elbowed in the head and stuff.

I love the symbolism of the Easter Pagent.

4.Jesus meets His Mother
5.Simon of Cyrene carries the cross
6.Jesus elbows people in the head
7.Jesus falls the second time

I'm shell-shocked.

10,000 or 60,000? Eggstremely poor reporting.

60,000 eggs... 10,000 participants... They expected 1-3,000 but since some of the eggs had certificates good for big screen TVs they got a bigger turnout than expected.

"It's a helicopter, and it's coming this way. It's flying something behind it, I can't quite make it out, it's a large banner and it says, uh - Happy... Thaaaaanksss... giving! ... From ... W ... K ... R... P!! No parachutes yet. Can't be skydivers... I can't tell just yet what they are, but - Oh my God, Johnny, they're turkeys!! Johnny, can you get this? Oh, they're plunging to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! Oh, the humanity! The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Not since the Hindenburg tragedy has there been anything like this!"

A local church has a similar event with a helicopter. When I asked some kids that were a bit older with young siblings attending about counter-battery, a wicked look passed between them.

One of their dads intervened before any water balloons and surgical tubing could be procured.

Is there room in the handbasket?

I also thought of WKRP when I read the article. Here's a hint to the pastor. If you offer big screen tv's, they will come.

I didn't even need to read the article. But I was expecting to see the WKRP link here in the comments.... it never gets old!

Should have made egg drop soup.

*snork* @ Meanie.

Hey how the weather is over there is it cold or warm because over here in Denver we are hot as a hotdog. Hope you write back!!!!!
