Q: Did you play with Satan's testicles today?

Apologies for the language, but I remember Easter Eggs being called something like "Satan's testicles" and was today passing a house church as it was ending the Easter sermon. Everyone was leaving the place with a plastic bag with eggs. 

Is this a Chinese take on spending the Church budget?

 

(don't get me wrong, I know the use of eggs are traditional in many countries, my own included, it just has jack all to do with religion)

truth is, kind sir, I am doing my best to ignore all holidays .... both \chinese (total 3 months a year) and "western" ( another 3 months) .........I cannot afford 6 months a year off, and I refuse to argue with my family...so they can have their holidays ... both sides of the Pacific....leave me out of it....... go ahead, call me Grinch.

so I like/appreciate the Satan's testicles analogy that I have never heard of either...devil made me do it

The eggs on Easter have everything to do with religion.  Unfortunately it's the wrong religion.  They should have taken those eggs to their local Fertility God temple.  Oh well, this is today's "Christianity".

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
