Happy Easter Sunday everyone!
Today’s comic is Hi & Lois.
“That was a lovely service, Reverend.” – Lois to the Reverend (Church Leader)
“Thank you.” – The Reverend
The Reverend speaks to the children, Dot and Ditto.
“Don’t you two look nice. And I was very impressed by how quiet you were.” – The Reverend to the children
“Mom said, “No chocolate Easter eggs if you don’t keep your mouth shut in church.”” – Ditto telling the Reverend why they were quiet.
What is going on?
Easter Sunday celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus arose from the dead after three days.
In Western countries, many children celebrate Easter by eating chocolate in the shape of chocolate (Easter eggs) and other sweet candies and treats.
Why is this comic funny?
The children were only good (sat quietly during the extra-long church service) otherwise they would not get any Easter candy or chocolate.
It is very embarrassing for the mother (Lois) that her son (Ditto) has told the true reason for his good behaviour was because of the promise of candy.
