ADVERTISMENT

What is the derivation of the phrase, "Oh, Mary?" It doesn't take a sleuth to recognize the relationship between camp and Catholicism, between Pagan and Passover seasonal rituals and…well, any other stuff that might pop up in the future; robot fatted calves, zombie butter sheep. Who can say? It's Spring. Can we all agree on that?

Thankfully, comic, cantankerous, and even sincere celebrations take place, whether you're into hunky Jesuses, furry bunnies, or a little of both.
