Welcome to the April 18, 2014 Post Game Show for Mojo Friday!

 

In our poll this week, tell us what your favorite Easter candy is!

Chocolate.  Yummy!  And good for you (I love modern science, don't you!).  Reminds me of Woody Allen coming awake in Sleeper and being told what other food myths we had in the 20th century!  That chocolate bar to the right was one I saw when in Disney World a few years ago ("Who Killed Roger Rabbit" being one of my favorite movies) ... and my favorite chocolate in the world is either Salazon (dark chocolate with sea salt or Valrhona 70% dark chocolate bars).  

The world would be better if we all just sat down and ate chocolate together.

Well, and maybe had a nice pint to accompany it.  [I remember driving my teen-age daughter bonkers when I sat down once with a great dark ale and some dark chocolate at the same time. Don't know why.]

And, as TexDem highlighted, commercialism has overrun Easter as it has Halloween and Christmas.   Although, ahem, as a child I always enjoyed the hunts for the easter baskets when we came from home church.

So, in celebration, our poll asks you what your favorite Easter candy is. If you're not Christian, then tell us what your favorite candy for this time of year is ... it's clearly not tied to any faith tradition!  Or even the need to have one!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
