What's Inside That Easter Egg? Can I Look-See? Can I? Huh! Can I?
by Harley Quinn, MPL "Cub" Reporter
It's my first big assignment! My first solo story, my first byline. . . . This is soooo egg-citing! I'm supposed to investigate the mysterious Easter eggs that were left in the staff mailboxes at my Library. Here's the one found in Scowl-Face's mailbox:
Curious Hard-Shelled Easter Egg
Lurking in Scowl-Face's Mailbox
This egg has a strangely rigid, hard shell that feels slippery on the surface--not wet but difficult to hold in your paws. When you push it over, it rolls a few times, and you can (gasp!) hear something rolling around inside the shell! It's simultaneously puzzling and enticing. What could it be in there? What could it be?!
Can I break open the egg, Cauli? Can I? Huh? Just a quick look-see. Please, please, please, please, can I please? Pretty please?
(Calm yourself, Harley. This is why she's still a "cub" reporter. -- Cauli Le Chat.)
Okay, I just can't stand it another minute! That egg must be broken now!
What's All This Then?
Where's the Fluffy Winged Dinner?
This is certainly not what I eggs-pected. There appear to be about a half dozen hard-shelled sweet chocolate hideaways (most likely they are people snacks), along with a sweet-smelling and -tasting chewy red dude--probably also a people snack. I'll ask the Lady With the Red Hair to subject them to various chemical and physical tests. She's an authority on chocolate.
Test results are in! After performing a mastication test, the Lady With the Red Hair has scientifically determined that
The chocolate hard-shells are chewable and tasty;
The sweet red dude is like a gummy bear and laced with sugar;
Red dude is also chewable and tasty.
There you have it! Sweet red dude is delicious! Little round hard-shell chocolate hideaways are likewise delicious. Quite a pleasant culinary surprise in this green Easter egg.
There was no indication who left the Easter eggs behind in the Library staff mailboxes. I can only surmise that it must have been the Easter bunny. The evidence is compelling: Unnaturally hard, slick eggshells . . . chocolate hideaway chewables . . . sweet little red dudes. The deduction is obvious.
I am eagerly awaiting reports from my Library colleagues to determine the contents of their eggs. Until then, I remain,
