Ah, Easter egg hunts, they ain’t all they’re cracked up to be. This weekend, PEZ Candy had to cancel its annual Easter egg hunt in Orange, Conn., when a bunch of idiot parents showed up and ruined everything.
According to reports, little kids were pushed aside by egg-hungry adults who stormed the fields in search of the 9,000 hidden prizes. George Costanza would be so proud.
The idea was simple enough: the kids were broken into three age groups, and after a visit from the Easter Bunny, they would be released at separate times to hunt and have fun. But instead of waiting, a group of parents rushed into the fields before the event even started. Eggy mayhem ensued. Kids were pushed aside as the hard-boiled horror show played out.
One hunter Nicole Welch told CNN affiliate WFSB. "When my son left, he had a broken basket, and he was hysterically crying."
An onslaught of complaints popped up on PEZ’s Facebook page, and the company offered a statement apologizing for the field of broken dreams: "Due to the actions of a few, the good intent quickly turned into a mess. I would like to sincerely apologize to each of our guests, this was not something created to frustrate or make people angry."
Happy Easter everyone!
