Religious leaders have been busy this weekend delivering highly decorated Easter eggs to all-and-sundry on Sunday.
The Archbishop of Cork, dressed up as a long-robed chicken, delivered the most politically-charged Easter egg.
But the Bishop of Auckland, after dropping a load of Easter eggs on the concrete pavement, publicly blasphemed at people on the steps of Sunderland Minster (although some traditionalists reckoned it was only a mispronunciation of his birthplace - Scunthorpe).
Archbishop Morris steered clear of politics in his Easter-egg-festooned Reliant Robin. Many other Bishops delivering Easter eggs were in colourful dresses, and several called on Christians to wear thongs and other fancy appendages of religious affiliation.
In Rome, after suffering on a croissant and eating too many out-of-date Easter eggs, the Pope drew large crowds on a big sketch pad, as he sat up in bed with stomach pains.
