Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, heads the list of women Irish men would like to see pop out of an Easter egg. Is leaping out of chocolate eggs a British custom, sort of like women jumping out of cakes at bachelor parties? Or is it just Irish? In either case, Joe.ie, quoting the Irish Daily Mirror, says the duchess has surpassed the ever-popular Cheryl Cole as the most fancied egg-popping figure.
In the bad old days, the British royals were not too popular among the Irish. It's good to know things have changed. But most fans would be dubious that Kate Middleton would ever pop out of a giant eggÂ—not even for Prince William's amusement. She leaves stunts like that to Lady Gaga.
Rihanna was next in the running, after Kate and Cheryl Cole, and not far behind. Nothing wrong with fantasies. The Irish women get a chance to ring in, too, naming the men they'd most like to have leaping from their chocolate eggs. Liam Neeson came in first, with David Beckham not far behind.
But actually, the Easter Bunny can just leave all those humongous chocolate eggs back in the nest, and the little ones, too. Most people would rather get something else. An egg salad sandwich, maybe? A platter of deviled eggs? Spring is a time for new beginnings.
