What’s In Easter?

Little Johnny props egg on his face


One Easter Sunday morning as the minister was preaching the children’s sermon, he reached into his bag of props and pulled out an egg.

He pointed at the egg and asked the children, “What’s in here?”

“I know!” Little Johnny exclaimed. “Pantyhose!”
