It’s Easter so whether you’re of the Christian persuasion or just love dismembering chocolate rabbits it’s a special day to reflect on the Biblical tale of Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection and/or eat your weight in sugar.
And, lo and behold, because it never gives us up and never lets us down the internet hath provided a glorious bounty of Easter-related jokes and memes that you can enjoy instead of going to church today and kneeling on those uncomfortable wooden planks.
If you want to hear God and Jesus interview the Easter Bunny himself check out the newest episode of The God Show podcast on iTunes.
The story of Jesus is an ancient one but that didn’t stop the residents of the internet from offering their modern-day thoughts on the Christian savior and his holiday.
