Even when I was a kid I didn't like the idea of biting the head off the chocolate easter bunny.
And as for those birthday cakes with a photo of the birthday person printed into the icing ... the first thing that happens after they blow out the candles is that someone plunges a knife into their face. :crazy:
The symbolism is just bad.

Just imagine the uproar if it was Mohammed.
I can even imagine some Christians getting pretty loud about it, if it was Jesus.
Buddhists will probably just shrug, but I wonder if there are cultures where this would lead to strong objections.

If you tried to pull this one in Thailand (for example) I don't think it will elicit a shrug.

Yes, that's one culture where there would probably be a strong reaction.
