Is this a fantastic Easter special? Eggs-actly!
29 December 2008 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

Easter in South Park, time to color eggs, the Ester Bunny will hide them, is all very strange and Stan has a question: what is the connection between Jesus and rabbits and colored eggs?

Is really fantastic since Stan is juts like "well, somewhere between Jesus dying on the cross and a giant bunny hiding eggs there's seems to be a gap of information". But young Stan asked too many, there is a secret, here is The Da Vinci Code show but certainly is more than just that, it is hilarious from start to finish with many stuff that I simply loved.

Cartman actually only appears in one little scene but is hilarious, is like poor f****** guy, first he has to dress as a rabbit to deal with kids such as Cartman ("you are a rabbit, I am a human so if you don't bring me what I want for Easter, I can f****** kill you...Bye, Easter Bunny!) and later with kids such as Stan who is just asking questions but and certainly this rabbit is more concern because of Stan, this rabbit was a member of The Hare Club for Men and simply you need to be a member of that club to know the secret of Easter, actually the Marshes has been members of that club for generations, for Randy is time to take Stan to the club. A little cute bunny named Snowball is the object of veneration, ninjas fighting against Easter bunnies, is fantastic stuff. Certainly at one point we finally know the secret: St. Peter was not a man at all, he was actually a rabbit! I loved that scene in which we see why the Pope's crown doesn't make any sense, certainly was designed for a rabbit! So basically The Hare Club for Men has been decorating eggs to keep this secret alive but now they are in the Vatican, after all Snowball is actually a descendant of St. Peter so the heir of the pope's throne. The stuff with Benedictus and Bill Donohue is simply brilliant and when finally Jesus appears is even more brilliant. Jesus was killed in Irak so here is finally back and he is great, he confirms that St. Peter was a rabbit and that a rabbit should be pope, Benedictus is certainly a prove of why, he has been doing whatever Bill Donohue wanted during the entire show. So for Bill Donohue here is like "well Jesus is going against the church, KILL HIM" and still Benedictus is like "I'm pretty sure that killing Jesus is not very Christian", is just hilarious and yes at one point Bill Donohue is the new pope and Jesus is looked up with another Jew. After comes more memorable stuff, that moment in which Jesus says to Kyle that he must kill him (so that he can resurrect outside the bars) is memorable, so far (after watching 6 episodes more of Season 11: the first four and the very last two) is THE moment of Season 11. Oh and if you didn't know well Kyle's a Jew. Well this is a must-see episode, so far my favourite from Season 11, Pope Snowball!
