Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 02/04/97

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

So much for Easter

Like most things, Easter just isn't what it used to be. Nowhere is this more clear than in the decline of the egg filled with Smarties. When I weighed less than I do now, one of the highpoints of Easter was cracking open one of those giant eggs shaped like Humpty Dumpty and filled with Smarties. It was way cool.

But sometime between my childhood and now, some bogan decided that inserting Smarties into an Easter egg was too difficult or expensive or something. When I hoed into a Smarties egg on the weekend, I was mortified to discover that there were no Smarties actually in the egg. Instead, there were three small boxes of Smarties enclosed separately. Well, that's special, isn't it?

To try and compensate, each box had a letter written on it, along with the cheerful instruction MAKE A WORD. I'm a pig, so I opened all three eggs in my possession, and ended up with the nine letters above. If anyone can make a word from these, then I'll buy a Celine Dion record.
