Easter candy

The Easter candy has started appearing in our local Duane Reade. I picked up my yearly batch of Creme Eggs, gaily presented in a large cardboard bin that is just hauled out and dusted each year. I bit into one, and the texture was off. A bit too crunchy. Then I looked at the remaining half-egg. It was fertilized. There was a candy chicken embryo inside it. I spat it to the ground, gagging, and ran to the nearest hydrant to wash my mouth out.

You think you're funny, don't you? Well, let me tell you something. You're not. You're not at all.

I thought you only found chicken embryos in muffins.
