I'll Stop the World and Melt With You

I know what you're doing right now, faithful readers. Wow. That came off creepier than I intended! What I meant to say was, I know what you're going through currently. For you see, today is the day after Easter, which means you have a bunch of candy (or, if you are a parent, your kids have a bunch of candy that is legally yours) that is just waiting to be eaten. But I also know that you, like me, realize that eating that much candy might make you sick and it could temporarily affect your perfectly toned six-pack.

It would be a shame to let all of that candy go to waste. So this week, I'm here to offer you a helpful suggestion that will allow you to "enjoy" the candy while still keeping comments such as "Didn't those pants used to fit you?" off of the table.

And here it is: Why not make an experimental film that deals with the destruction of your Easter treats? It sounds silly, I know, but take a look at this short film by a visionary team called Lernert & Sander, which is simply titled "Chocolate Bunny."




These are just a few of the words I found in a thesaurus to describe the events you just saw unfold.

Seriously, though, that was pretty fun, wasn't it? Doesn't it make you want to forgo eating all of that candy and, instead, melt it with a hair dryer?

No? You're still planning on filling that hollow chocolate Easter bunny with peanut butter?

Darn. I tried.

Oh well.

That does sound pretty good, though. . .

. . . . .excuse me, I need to go unplug my iron.

Wow. So many emotions right now. I know it was just chocolate, but it was a little sad. I felt for the bunnies.

It was also awesome and I wanted to see more melting chocolate bunnies...

Mormon Movie Guy, I agree.

And Bethany, I think that's exactly how we all feel!
