Georgia's Easter egg looks like mail-order kitsch

Easter Egg White House Georgia

Behold, to your right! The ova of Joe-juh!

This odd orb was one of the 49 others designed by the American Egg Board and scattered willy-nilly on the White House lawn, as is the Easter custom. The nameless faceless urchins who, after passing background checks, security clearances and slipping the bomb-sniffing hounds' handlers a crisp C-note, stumbled upon this half-shell creation that looks like it fell off the back page of a PARADE magazine. This is something you buy in a Hallmark store and give to your third grade teacher, which she conveniently — accidentally! — drops out her car window.

I'm having a difficult time figuring out what we're observing. Does the outside symbolize Georgia's pristine outer shell, our gentle facade? Is the inside the murky slush in which countless souls sink and thrash about, trying to stay above the muck? I'm guessing it's a forest, but is that a prison in back? What did these people know about Ron Sailor, and when did they know it?!?

What say you, noble reader?
