What a total waste of money and resources. As senseless as Stokes' annual MLK parade with complimentary charter-bus transportation for the yoot.

You're up at 4:02 AM talking trash about a Easter Egg Hunt? What's wrong with you?

7:05; You're up at 7:00 yacking about the time stamp of a post when you could be commenting on the subject at hand? I got home at 3:15 a.m. from running product to Meridian. You need an enema.

Enemas all around. For gosh sakes...

This is very positive and an event that can be enjoyed by children and their families. Other area cities have egg hunts as well.

This is good for the small kids in Jackson who just want a happy Easter as well as the parents who do not live in the best parts of town, such as a bad apartment complex. Children, unfortunately, do not have the choice of where they live nor of the adults that are around them.

I do hope this goes well and a fun time is had by all who attend.

I don't care if Kingfart blows colored eggs out his ass, it's a waste of government resources. Let the churches or community organizations pay for this nonsense.

Can any of the older people remember an Easter egg hunt when they were a child? The way I remember it they actually hid the eggs. Take a look how they do it today.

5:25....the egg hunts you remember were either orchestrated by your parents or your church. Not a black city administration wasting taxpayer dollars. Stand by to read about a parent being shot at the annual Jackistan egg chase. It will happen. Count on it. And Kingfoot will start a new column about lawlessness in Jackistan.

Madison has one too each year but that is ok. This year it rained so they gave the goodies away to the kids that showed up.

Really? When was this Madison Easter Egg Hunt this year?

March 22, 2016 at 3:12 PM, you are a nasty excuse for a human being.
Cities of Canton, Flowood, Madison, and Ridgeland are all hosting egg hunts, to name a few Mississippi cities.
Happy Easter a**hole.

" are a nasty excuse for a human being. Happy Easter a**hole."

Easter is a Christian occasion. "Happy Easter" is a misnomer. Somber reflection is called for, not 'happy happy'. Easter is an occasion for reflection on Christ's life and resurrection, not a time to celebrate rabbits, blue eggs and politicians. Egg hunts have nothing to do with Christianity. Nor do rabbits lay eggs. No matter which towns sponsor such frivolity, it's a waste of tax-payer money. Digest that asshole!

A Christian who wishes others might have a 'happy Easter' and then calls them asshole is an odd creature. Perhaps he could become a blog-host. Or already has.

"Happy" about the resurrection.
Rabbits, eggs and such are non-related and a fun tradition. I didn't see anyone say that eggs and Christianity were related. Aware that rabbits don't lay eggs. Lighten up. Watch a Cadberry commercial - "bok-bok!" Children should have fun. It is fine for municipalities to budget for family fun. They also provide other similar events such as safe trick-or-treating, carnivals, concerts, etc. Don't like it? Run for office. Though it would be hard for Scrooge to get elected.
Seriously, Happy Easter. Enjoy your weekend, however you choose to celebrate.

I happened upon a news segment on WLBT this morning. It featured the famed 'Easter Egg Hunt of Jackistan'. What I saw (subject to correction by the smart-mouthed Christians out there) were about a hundred kids running into a field strewn with multiple hundreds of boiled, colored eggs, none 'hidden'. An egg appeared to be 'laid' every foot and a half as if they'd just been dumped out of buckets. This is not what I remember as an Easter Egg Hunt. Nothing was 'hidden'. There was no 'hunt'. Only running along trying to pick up as many as humanly possible befoe somebody else got to them.

What lesson was learned here?

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
