Molly Thomas is a performer and writer living in New York who has developed an awesomely silly hobby. When she isn’t performing at the Upright Citizens Brigade, she’s dressing up her roommate Mick Bleyer like a baby and perfectly recreating baby photos for a funny and impressively good-natured project entitled My Precious Roommate.

From the Department of Awesome Cuteness (and just in time for Easter!) come these debilitatingly cute photos of an adorable pit bull terrier named Boom having a spring day frolic with a fuzzy chick and an entire basket of baby bunnies.
If you’ve just realized that you can’t stop smiling, don’t worry, neither can we.
Dear Internet - I heard you like bacon, so I made this for you. Happy Easter!
Easter without plenty of chocolate and other sweets is pretty much unimaginable, but the folks over Atomic Shrimp created this awesome Bacon Easter Egg, reminding us that a happy Easter is also a meaty Easter.
The egg itself is made of woven strips of bacon - a beautiful sight to behold. It contains “a couple of nice Cumberland sausages and some fried slices of black pudding - also on the plate; fried tomato, mushroom, potato slices, fried bread, baked beans and a fried egg (cooked to perfection with a liquid yolk) - and a nice mug of tea on the side.”

Someone played a cruel trick on the Easter Bunny. He thought he was decorating a big, beautiful egg. It’s a perfectly harmless thing for a bunny to do. That is, assuming the egg wasn’t laid by a Xenomorph. A good day for a freshly hatched facehugger is a bad day for pretty much anyone else.
We aren’t sure who created this gruesome Easter masterpiece. If you know who is responsible for producing such awesomeness, please let us know.

Located in the tiny village of Bishop Hill, Illinois, American sculptor Beth Ann Magnuson transforms the eggshells from turkeys, chickens, duck, peafowl, pheasants, partridges, and even tiny quail into delicate works of art. She carves and etches intricate Victorian lace patterns into the blown shells using a high speed drill.
Although she is currently taking a short break (to create more awesome lace eggs), Beth Ann has an Etsy shop called The Nest at Windy Corner where she sells these amazing works of art.

He says to serve, “decorate with mustard. You do not have to put the image of Christ on every corn dog. If you have any martyrs in your family, feel free to squirt on their likeness and share it with them to show that you know how much they themselves have suffered, which will give them great comfort.”
“They’re more substantial than a communion wafer, and more delicious, too. And, given the nature of hot dogs, you still won’t be certain from which part of the body they came.”
Head over to Food for the Thoughtless for the recipe and instructions.

The couple has been decorating their tree in this fashion for over 40 years now and, as you can see in the photos above, this year the Easter tree is looking more splendid than ever.

Feast your eyes on these awesome sets of pop culture-themed Easter Eggs. So many eggs! Each and every one of these eggs was hand-painted by Rene Lopez, aka DeviantARTist Rene-L.
The best part is, this isn’t even all of them. In fact we’ve barely scratched the surface. Head over to Rene’s DeviantART gallery to view them all.

Jessie Oleson, our favourite Dessert Detective and maven of sweetness otherwise known as Cakespy (previously featured here), has outdone herself once again. This ooey-gooey creation is a Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg.
A traditional Scotch Egg is a savoury treat consisting of a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg, while no healthier, is all about sweetness:
"The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs. Though in my opinion, these have slightly more complex flavor thanks to the cocoa in the batter and the vanilla cookie crumbs. Speaking of the crumbs, they also give the treat a pleasing crunch, which acts as a nice texture contrast to the cakey batter and soft, gooey chocolate and sugar-filled interior.”
Looking at these photos makes our teeth hurt and our stomachs rumble. Oh sweet Cadbury Creme Eggs, how we’ll miss you once you’re gone for the year.
